Plant Based Private Chef Services

Want to enjoy delicious, custom meals at home without having to meal plan, grocery shop, prep, cook and clean up every day?   Let me do the work for you!  Whether you prefer visually stunning, gourmet dinners, or simple family-friendly fare, we’ll work together to create menus that reflect your personal palate and dietary needs.  You’ll get to enjoy healthy homemade meals without having to lift a finger!

I can prepare meals in your home kitchen or have them delivered to you, and am happy to cook for households of any size.  Whether I’m cooking for one person or a crowd, my high standards and passion for beautiful, wholesome food ensure an unforgettable dining experience.

Prenatal/Postnatal Food Preparation

During this special time in your life, it is crucial to be eating foods that will support the health of you and your growing baby.  I will provide the meals and snacks that will provide a strong nutritional foundation throughout your pregnancy, breastfeeding, and beyond.

Plant Based/Holistic Health Coaching

Do you want to cut animal products out of your diet but aren’t sure where to begin?  Do you ever think, “I could be vegan, but could never give up cheese?”  Are you unsure of what to cook for family members that may not be on board with your new dietary preferences?  Let me coach you through your journey toward a healthy and joyful vegan lifestyle (and yes, there’s life after cheese!).  I hold a certificate in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell University and I will assist you in gradually (and painlessly!) replacing meat and/or dairy products with satisfying, minimally processed plant-based alternatives so that you can start experiencing improved energy, clearer skin, weight loss, and overall better health right away.  You’ll learn how to navigate the supermarket and decode labels, as well as how to order vegan meals at any restaurant.  We’ll discuss proper plant based nutrition and which foods contain the highest levels of essential nutrients.  I’ll help you cope with the issues that may arise with giving up animal products while teaching you strategies for effectively communicating with individuals who may be skeptical or confused about your new lifestyle.  You will receive delicious, easy meat-free recipes to make at home that your whole family (vegan or not!) will enjoy.  I can customize our sessions to address your most pressing concerns and questions, making your journey to health as seamless and enjoyable as possible!  Coaching sessions are available in person or via phone/email/Skype.

Vegan Cooking Classes

Learn how to create delicious meat-free meals in the comfort of your own kitchen.  In these intimate instructional classes, I will come to your home and teach you how to make impressive vegetarian/vegan dishes for you and your loved ones to enjoy.  Choose from menus that range from quick, every day dinners to elegant entertaining spreads that are sure to impress.

As we cook together, I will share important fundamental culinary techniques with you, allowing you to up your cooking game instantly.  When we are done cooking, sit down to enjoy the fruits of your labor and keep the recipes to enjoy again and again.

Boutique In-Home Catering

Let me come to your home and cook for your next gathering, whether it be a cocktail party with unique drinks and nibbles, or an intimate multi-course celebration with family and friends.  You can finally be a guest at your own party by allowing me to take care of the food and drink – I’ll create a delicious custom menu for up to 12 people featuring wholesome, seasonal food that will be served to you and your guests in style.

Stocking a Natural Foods Pantry

The path to health starts with your pantry.  Let me help you replace foods that may be harmful to your health with nourishing, delicious ingredients that will make cooking wholesome meals easier than ever.  We’ll go to your local grocery store and navigate the aisles in order to find the best foods available.  I will help you read through labels and answer your questions so you have a thorough understanding of why different ingredients have certain effects on our bodies and overall health.  When we return home, I will give you storage and cooking tips and assist you in organizing your newly stocked Natural Foods Pantry.

I can also assist you in organizing and obtaining proper cooking equipment that you will need in order to cook delicious, healthy meals at home.  We’ll focus on high quality, multi-purpose kitchenware that you will come to depend on to make your favorite foods.

Let me help you gently detoxify your body to improve overall health, boost energy levels, and gain better mental clarity.  My vegan detox plan includes vibrant green juices, nutritional broths and soups, soothing teas, greens, berries, nuts and whole grains.
