faced with a challenge, evaluate or assess the situation, gather the
good things in sight, abandon the bad, clear your mind, and move on. -Martha Stewart
That is how I approach cooking.....working thru food allergies, taste preferences and winter weather. How can I help you?

Home Plate Advantage Personal Chef Service is the answer to "What's for dinner?".
Meal Services: When life gets a little too busy, I can help. Hate to cook? Tired of takeout and tasteless food? Bored with your usual meals selections? Let me take care of dinner. By preparing multiple meals in one service , I can save you time, reduce stress, and eliminate wasted food. I use the freshest ingredients to cook meals that meet your dietary needs, likes, and dislikes. This results in better tasting food ready to heat and eat that is actually good for you. Try a gift certificate for that perfect present or treat yourself to dinner and a massage!
Celebrations: Have you ever missed your party because you were in the kitchen? Home Plate Advantage can take care of all the details for your next celebration. Whether you are having a BBQ, a formal gourmet dinner, a large cocktail party or an intimate dinner for two, I can take all the pressure off of you with hand selected menus, served to you in any style you like (plated, buffet, passed apps). I will even do the cleanup. I can coordinate the help of fellow chefs for large parties, servers, bartenders and rentals, giving you a carefree celebration that will be delicious. Pig roasts, paella parties, cooking demos, brunches, and themed parties are only the tip of the iceberg - have an idea? Just ask.
How Does a Personal Chef Service Work?
As your personal chef, I'll start by meeting with you face to face for about 30-45 minutes to understand your likes, dislikes and any dietary needs you may have. Once I understand your preferences, I will create a menu personalized to fit you. No "cookie cutter" menus here.
Grocery Shopping and Preparation
On your pre-arranged cook day, I will hand pick the freshest ingredients available, come to your home and prepare the dishes you've selected. I'll even bring my own equipment, platters and anything else we might need for your event.
Hassle Free Dinners
Once I've completed your entrees, I will package them in portioned servings and conveniently store them in your refrigerator/freezer, labeled with entree name, date, and easy to follow heating instructions. For parties, you will be served in an unobtrusive manner, ladies first of course! Before I leave your home, the kitchen will be spotless and your home will smell wonderful with the day’s recipes.
Great meals you just heat and eat.....doesn't that sound good?
