What is a Personal Cook?

What are the benefits of a personal cook?
You will enjoy delicious, and customized meals, specially designed for you without leaving your home or work place. Tasty will eliminate the stress and the time-comsumming processes of planning a weekly menu, shopping, cooking and cleaning up. You will be able to enjoy a relaxed and tasty meal with who you want, and when you want.
How does it works?
The service is divided in two sections: consultation and meal preparation. In the consultation day you will complete a detailed food questionnaire in order to check your food tastes, preferences, kitchen space, utensils, and appliances. After this interview Tasty will design your menu and send it to you so you can approve it before the meal preparation day. During the cooking day we will do the grocery shopping, cook in your kitchen, pack and label your meals with reheating instructions, and clean your kitchen. All you need to do is pick, reheat and enjoy a delicious meal at your leisure.

Are there any long term contracts or commitments to service?

Are you going to cook in my kitchen?
Yes. By cooking in your kitchen, I’m preparing your food in the same environmnet that you use when cooking for yourself and your family. As a result, you can be assured that your meals are of the highest quality.
How do we choose our menus?
During the consulting day we will define your culinary likes and dislikes and we will create a menu just for you and your needs. Then we will e-mail you the menu so you can approve it. You can also look at the sample menu section and select some dishes that appeal to your senses.
Does my kitchen has to be well equiped?
All you need to have is a stove, sink, and space on your fridge and/or freezer. We will check your kitchen at the consultation day so we can bring everything else we need for the cooking day.
How do you store our meals?
I typically store meals in the refrigerator for the first 6 days. Dishes to be consumed after that will be frozen.
Can you use my containers?
Sure. We will use your containers to pack you meals. In the case you don’t have enough containers we can buy it for you.
How do I re-heat my food?
Every meal will be label with re-heating instructions. If your meals are frozen allow a day in the refrigerator for defrost.
Can we afford your service?
That is a very personal decision. You will save money by not frequenting restaurants and you will save valuable time that you spent planning, shopping, cooking and cleaning your kitchen. Also your health will be benefied replacing delivery foods with nutritious home cooked meals made with fresh, natural, healthy ingredients.
