Why hire a Seattle Personal Chef?
Clients hire us for many reasons. A personal chef provides more than just a meal. It’s a connection between you and your food. It’s an opportunity to explore new tastes, textures, and local ingredients. Hiring a personal chef is a chance to reclaim priceless time in your busy life. Delicious, healthy, home cooked meals like you’ve never experienced before.
Top reasons to hire a personal chef for the home
Get time back in your day
The average American spends 1-2 hours a day doing food prep (usually more). If you’re working for 8 hours and sleeping for 8, that will give you back ~12% of your free time. That might not seem like a lot, but an extra hour can dramatically improve your lifestyle. Increase your exercise routine, spend time with your family, work on a hobby, or simply relax.
Over 85% of Americans don’t eat enough vegetables. Whether you want to improve your diet, have a family member with a dietary restriction, or have one yourself, hiring a personal chef can change the way you live. We are able to prepare meals under any and all requirements you have, including gluten free and vegan meal prep. We often work directly with client’s nutritionist and dieticians to provide exact meal plans that benefit our client’s dietary goals
Don’t know how to cook
1 in 3 people cite lack of knowledge as the reason why they don’t cook. This is very common in the career-driven city of Seattle. Many of our clients are simply tired of ordering unhealthy takeout and delivery. If you’re in this group, a personal chef will be a breath of fresh air. You’d also be amazed at how much you can learn simply by watching!
Don’t want to cook
Many of our clients have called us after getting tired of cooking. If you’ve been the primary meal preparer for your family for years and your kids have finally moved out, chances are cooking is the last thing you want to do. Hiring a personal chef gives you the freedom to explore dishes and cuisines that you like, without worrying about what everyone else wants.
