IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION: One of many reasons to hire a Personal Chef?

Excerpt from: Food waste! It’s a regrettable problem
                      (Essay 2017 by Chef Gilles of PrivateChefService.ca)


Here are our statistics for Canadian consumers and the effect on our grocery bills:

  • 30,115,490 is the Canadian population (14 years and older)
  • $14.6 billion is the individual waste of food in Canada (2014) or 47% of total national waste
  • 31 billion is the national food waste total each year

This equates to the following dollar amounts of wasted food per household:

  • $484.80 is the dollar amount of food wasted per person per year
  • $1,939.20 on average is the dollar amount of wasted food for a family of 4

Expect these usual principles from Chef Gilles, your Personal Chef

The Chef’s personal commitment:

  • Only fresh food to be purchased and prepped
  • Local products used when possible, when in season
  • Selected organic products used when appropriate
  • Only the highest graded and quality of meats to be cut and served
  • Seafood from the sea, not plant processed

I will shop for you, I will prep for you and I will leave the cooking instructions for you to complete your meal.

You manage the time you will feed yourself, your family and your friends.

See important section on ‘rates’ below...
'You can pay for most of your Personal Chef expense when using this service
which reduces or eliminates expensive home ‘Food Waste’’

Customized services

  • I offer exclusive culinary services which include shopping for all the necessary ingredients. 
  • If you wish, I will suggest your daily or weekly meal plan, prepare your meals and leave you with all cooking instructions.  If you prefer that I cook once in a while, this can be arranged as well.
  • We work together to create your customized plan that fits your preferences, budget and timetable.  This process begins with a consultation to get to know you, your family, if applicable, and your kitchen!

I prepare your weekly meals and if you wish
I will also prepare and serve the dishes you would prefer
for your private functions, parties or events.

Why invite me into your home as your Personal Chef?

  • Your busy lifestyle, family and work responsibilities suggest that you need assistance to prepare home cooked meals from scratch.
  • You wish to avoid the dinner quick fix of ordering in, meals in the microwave or visiting the prepared meals section of your grocery store.
  • You wish to take charge at reducing ‘food waste’ because the food you purchased on the weekend was not consumed during the suggested best time limits for freshness and food safety.
  • You want to change your habits and perhaps would like to work toward a specific goal, such as weight loss or weight control.
  • A personal chef supports the local economy and sustainable agriculture.
  • A personal chef is sensitive to gluten free, sugar, dairy or vegetarian diets.

I can help you with all of the above.

WHAT DOES IT COST TO HIRE A PERSONAL CHEF?

The Kitchen Sink (the works)

  • We have a consultation to determine your taste preferences, dietary needs/requirements and your typical weekly schedule.
  • Based on the consultation, from the meals schedule required, I will then recommend a menu with customized recipes for the week
  • I do all of the required grocery shopping
  • I prepare your fresh lunches and/or dinners, portions of each as determined, in your home and leave everything into the fridge ready to serve, or to cook/heat and serve!
  • All meals are left with detailed instructions and best before dates, as well as some suggestions for what to do with leftovers
  • I do all of the dishes and clean your kitchen before leaving

The cost

All rates must be customized for your needs and requirements.  However, here is an example of what can be expected.

Typically the fees are established based on the number of weeks, the daily meals and portions required, as determined at the time of the consultation.

Let’s assume that you will need 5 dinners, for a family of 4 and 5 school lunches per week.

This would typically take me four hours per week to prepare, (two visits of two hours) which includes shopping, travel to your home within a 25km radius, storage and clean up.

Based on $35 per hour for a long term program, the cost would be $140 per week, + groceries and applicable taxes on service.
  
Grocery costs are not included in the cost of the service.  However, I buy the groceries and you reimburse me.


The numbers below are not invented out of thin air. 
Unfortunately, they are the cold hard facts !

Here is a compelling argument on affordability of services from a Personal Chef
(Based on a family of 4)

$14.6 billion is the individual waste of food in Canada (2014) or 47% of total national waste of 31 billion

This equates to the following dollar amounts of wasted food per household:

  • $484.80 is the dollar amount of food wasted per person per year
  • $1,939.20 on average is the dollar amount of wasted food for a family of 4
  • $161.60 is the dollar amount of food wasted by a family of 4 each month

The cost for the services of a Private Chef at home:

  • + $560.00 is the amount required for a full time home Personal Chef service
  • -  $161.60 is the dollar amount of food wasted by a family of 4 each month
  •    $398.40 is the net amount for the service of a Personal Chef at home per month


This equates to as little as $99.60 per week
for your Personal Chef at home preparing your meals

Note: the applicable taxes are to be added.  
         The groceries are paid separately using the purchase slips from suppliers and grocery stores.

Hiring a Private Chef at home may prove to be an excellent decision
that fits your busy lifestyle in line with the desire to achieve the goals
of eating better meals, from a greater variety of foods;
giving you more leisure time and reducing home food waste.

WHAT DOES IT COST TO HIRE A PERSONAL CHEF? part 2



The hourly ‘In-House’ meal preparation, preference

If you aren't ready to commit to a full time meal preparation business plan, hire me by the hour.

All rates are customized to your needs and requirements.  

However, here is an example of what can be expected:

  • Two-hour minimum commitment during which, typically, I can prepare three full dinners which includes the shopping time.
  • Everything will be packaged and labelled with expiry dates and heating and serving instructions.
  • Your kitchen is always clean when I'm done!

The cost

Typically, between $90 and $135 for two hours must be considered depending on travel time.  Then, $45/hour for each additional hour is required depending on the term of the agreement and location.  A deposit may also need to be discussed.

Grocery costs are not included in the cost of the service.  However, I buy the groceries and you reimburse me.

I prepare your weekly meals and if you wish
I will also prepare and serve the dishes you would prefer
for your private functions, parties or events.
