Fees for Personal Chef services and In-Home Catering include menu selection and ingredient list creation, the chef, food preparation and cook times, serving of the food and clean-up. Dishes, pots, pans and any cookware used during the event will be washed and set out on the counter to dry prior to leaving. Kitchen, sink and stove will be wiped down and left clean. Leftover food and grocery items will be organized. Leftover prepared food will be set out for the host to send home with guests if they choose. After cleanup is finished (usually while guests are eating) – I’ll say goodnight and quietly slip away.
