Personal Chef Menu Items

For many years, I have seen the value of eating food that is free of chemicals, pesticides, and preservatives. Therefore, I have always focused on eating foods that are from the earth in there unadulterated form as much as possible. My love of cooking for others has stemmed from this background of eating whole foods.

My own personal background has also included sensitivities to certain foods such as wheat, dairy and sugar. In my personal experience, there are many people who suffer from allergies and sensitivities to certain foods. At the same time, it is very difficult to find food free of certain ingredients and that are also pleasing to eat.

The following menus offers you a glimpse of the kinds of foods I enjoy cooking for people. A lot of the recipes I cook have their origin from other countries such as Thailand, India and Middle Eastern countries. However, I design a menu specifically for each client I have, based on their likes and dislikes as well as allergies and sensitivities. Please note that I do not cook pork, lobsters, or crab legs.  “Fresh items” are better not frozen.

Please note: Most if not all dishes can be made wheat, dairy, soy, nut, and shellfish-free.  All menus are designed for your diet!
