There is no sincerer love than the love of food.
George Bernard Shaw
Gourmet Express Personal Chef Service answers all of your questions!
The chef meets with you in your home to go over the food questionnaire in person, to give an idea of how much room is needed for storage in your refrigerator and freezer, and to make sure that the stove, oven and sink all work correctly.
The cost of the home meal replacement service will vary depending on the number of meals being prepared, your dietary restrictions and preferences, and where you live in the Metroplex.
The price of the service includes all food and labor.
The chef has a B.S. in Business Administration, a Diploma in Culinary Arts, and a Certificate in Catering and Gourmet Cooking. The chef also carries a certificate from the State of Texas Department of Health for Food Protection Management.
Gourmet Express uses disposable Pactiv containers that can go into the freezer, microwave, and oven (except for the plastic dome lid). This type of container is used for the convenience and safety of our clients.
The chef is normally at your home between three and five hours (based on cooking for two adults). It will take slightly longer for additional meals being prepared.
All of the recipes that are used are from the United States Personal Chef Association. These recipes have been tested in their kitchens to hold their quality after they have been frozen and thawed out before being reheated. If there is a recipe requested by the client that is not in the USPCA manual, the chef will test the recipe before making it for you.
Most of the ingredients used are purchased at local supermarkets (Tom Thumb or Kroger). If a specific ingredient is not carried by one of these supermarkets, there are specialty shops, such as Central Market, that carry the remaining ingredients.
Due to city regulations all food must be prepared in the client’s home to consider the business a service. If the food were prepared at another building, that building would have to comply with all city regulations for food preparation.
The same meal will not be duplicated for at least six months (if you are on a four-week rotation) and usually not for one year. You may, of course, always specifically request a certain meal to be duplicated at any time
