How it Works

Food is inherently tied to family, community, and friends.  Though we eat for essential nourishment, we also eat for pleasure, to connect with others, and to celebrate life’s milestones and rituals, both large and small.

 

Maggie Redic, Flatware Setting

When I cook for you, I make what you want to eat.  We’ll discuss your needs and determine what works for your schedule:  full dinners cooked fresh daily, a stocked fridge and freezer for the week, or something in between.  Then we’ll discuss your family’s tastes and preferences.

The food I cook will be prepared exclusively for your family, from organic whole foods and all from scratch.

From there we can collaborate on menus, or you can hand all the planning over to me, and I’ll make meals within your guidelines.

In all cases, any dietary restrictions are easily accommodated and I am happy to modify any recipe as needed.
