When your intentions are to eat healthy, but time just doesn't allow, hire a Personal Cook! Simply-VA offers weekly or occasional cooking services in the comfort of your home. Based on your preferences, each week you're offered a sample menu of dishes from which you choose three complete meals. The quantity of each meal is enough for one night's dinner plus leftovers for lunch or dinner again the next day.
Menu planning, grocery shopping, cooking and clean-up are all done for you. Enjoy your day without the stress of stopping to prepare meals. Several savory meals are prepared in your kitchen and placed in the refrigerator, just heat and serve. You will look forward to delicious and nutritious home cooked meals and finally, your energy will be regained. Special diet requests are always accommodated.
When are services performed? Cooking services are available Monday morning through Friday afternoon with various start-time slots in the week. Cook sessions are approximately three hours.
Do I have to be home during the cook session? Most of my clients work from home, so it's not unusual for me to be cooking in the kitchen and you to be working in your home office. If you work outside the home, we can make arrangements for my access to the kitchen.
Can I choose my weekly meals? Yes! Meal requests are welcome, though most clients prefer the creativity of my weekly menu offerings that fit their preferences.
Is there a contract obligation? No contract obligation is required. You can use the cooking service on a weekly basis, just one time, or once a month. The courtesy of a 72-hour cancellation is always welcome, however.
When is payment made for services rendered? Payment is made at the time of service on a per-visit basis. Payment is preferred in cash or check made payable to "Simply-VA". Credit cards are accepted through PayPal.
Do you cater events? Yes, cooking services can be provided for your events. Simply-VA has catered a Sunday family brunch, romantic dinners, a small backyard wedding, happy hour appetizers and drinks, a weeknight birthday celebration, and numerous Saturday afternoon packed picnics for wine tours. You name it, Simply-VA can make it happen with elegant presentation.
What is the cost of a private dinner? Appetizer, soup/salad course, entree, and simple dessert consist the four-course private dinner. Menu planning, grocery shopping, cooking and clean are all done for you. Cost is $150 for two people, $225 for four people, and $300 for six people.
How much is a private event? Because each event is unique in menu and number of guests, a special quote must be given for events on an individual basis. This is a cooking service only. Decorations, tables, chairs, plates, silverware, napkins, and plates must be provided by the host.
