Why I Love to Cook for my Clients

31 Dec

In a world where most jobs have us as “cogs in a wheel” working for low wages, without sight of a final goal for the company or ourselves, as a Personal Chef I do everything soup to nets for each client. I find out what
Instead, as a Personal Chef I speak to people about what food means to them that would determine the choices of foods we will prepare for them. Is it simply for nourishment? Must it be a work of art for them to enjoy it? Are there specific dietary needs such as diabetic diet or salt free diet for clients that have been through heat failure or similar issues. Vegetarian or vegan is easy for me since I keep kosher I am very conscious of any indication meat, dairy and shellfish ingredients that would make a dish non-kosher or trayf.
Within the limitations of these health related issues, I find the dishes they most enjoy (or won’t go near). I am able to prepare some of my client’s favorites (and mine) with minor adjustments.
Two weeks ago I prepared one of my signature salmon dishes that normally is marinated in lime, ginger, garlic.oil and soy sauce for a salt free client. I removed the soy sauce for the recipe (I may try the liquid aminos in the future). It was delicious. The husband and wife said they never had such delicious food. I will be back in their kitchen this week to refill their fridge with the foods they most enjoy.
My most requested dishes include roast chicken, beef stew, chicken picata, baked marinated salmon. Roast vegetables, brownies, chicken matzoh ball soup, lentil soup. peanut butter cookies .and meat loaf.
People want healthy well prepared home-style dishes. They can’t believe how good this food tastes. When they tell me this, it is SOOO satisfying. Of course, making money doing what you love is pretty cool too!!
I can use the knowledge I acquired in college studying nutrition as well as the latest trending diet programs to tweak recipes and food choices to an individuals needs.

Call me, tell me what you need, or want. Chef Helen can put together weekly meals, dinners for 2, dinner parties, and of course baking. Always open to new ideas.

Classy Christmas Party for My Client

30 Dec

Last Monday, I received a call from Brian, a new client.  His caterer had a death in the family and cancelled two days before his annual Christmas party to be held in his home for 20 people. His caterer had a much fancier menu than I normally  do. He had reviewed my website and liked the sound of what I cook.

I called on a friend who had assisted me on other large jobs and together we met with the client.  I had explained that all cooking , except for possible baking must be done in his home.  together we decided on the following menu.

  • mushroom canapes
  • mini quiche
  • eggplant appetizers with ricotta and tomato
  • Butterflied lamb with a Greek yogurt sauce
  • Oriental Marinated Red Snapper
  • Veal Marsala
  • Jasmine Rice
  • String Beans Amondine
  • Potato Latkes with homemade apple sauce and sour cream
  • Brownies
  • Apple Crisp with Homemade Whipped Cream
  • Peanut Butter Cookies
  • Mini Chocolate Hazelnut Gelato

I got so many many compliments from his delightful guests.  With the assistance of Jay as server, Josh as bartender and his housekeeper Daisy keeping all the dishes washed we kept the food flowing and the guests happy.

When would you like our team to put a dinner like this for you and your friends.  Please, more than two days notice!!

We can do smaller or larger parties , dinner parties, dinner for two, and our ever-present weekly cooking for families, singles and retirees.
