Vacation dinners


Relish personal chef service helped our family out tremendously during a time when it was difficult to do our own cooking, due to a challenging pregnancy and having two young children. The meals were delicious, very healthy, and everyone in the family loved the main course, as well as the side dishes and bread. Rachel is professional and organized and the food is excellent quality.

Commonly Asked Questions

  • What is a personal chef? A personal chef is someone who prepares customized meals in your home for you and your family to enjoy. They do all of the grocery shopping, meal planning, cooking, and cleaning, leaving you with a clean kitchen and a refrigerator stocked with delicious meals! Personal chefs work for multiple families at the same time, while private chefs work for only one family.
  • Who should use a personal chef?  Anyone can benefit from a personal chef! Many busy families utilize personal chefs because they have hectic schedules, but they can still enjoy dinnertime around their table at home. Also, many people with special diets take advantage of the customized menus personal chefs offer.
  • Is it affordable? Yes! How much time do you spend in a week menu planning, driving to the grocery store, grocery shopping, cooking, and doing dishes? How much is your time worth? Personal Chef services allow you to eat in the comfort of your own home without spending all of your spare time grocery shopping, cooking and doing dishes. Instead, you can spend that time with your family!
  • What about packaging the food? Meals can be packaged in your choice of either reusable containers such as Pyrex, or recyclable aluminum containers. If you choose to use Pyrex, we can use ones you already have or you can purchase them. If you prefer one-time use containers, the fee for them is added to your bill at each service.
