How does it work?
Each week the chef will send you a menu suggestion list and you chose which items you want. The chef will do the shopping and show up on the appointed day and prepare all the meals. Each meal is labeled and you are left heating instructions.
How is a chef chosen?
Rebecca will ask you what day(s) of the week you want the cooking done, what your basic dietary needs are, and what city you live in. This will cut the list of possibilities down for you to then read the profiles on each available chef. You may choose from the available chefs or she can choose for you.
Can I change chefs after I chose one or have worked with one?
Yes! You may change chefs anytime.
Can I do the shopping myself?
Yes! If you want to do the shopping the chef will supply you with a grocery list.
How long does it take the chef to cook?
Each situation is unique and that is why we charge by the hour. Generally speaking a dinner for 4 people would be approximately one hour. It all depends on the menu, the complexity of the meal and the number of servings. Call WHE and ask for an estimate based on your needs and see below from some examples.
Do you guarantee how long the chef will take cooking?
No, we can give estimates but we do not guarantee the time.
How are the meals packaged?
You may buy your own containers or we can purchase them and bill you. You may have the meals packaged in individual servings or family style.
Can I have the chef just prep the meal and I will cook it when I get home?
Yes! The chef can prepare the complete meal or just prep. What ever you prefer.
Will the chef clean the kitchen?
Yes, the chef will clean up after cooking.
Do I need to commit to a long-term contract?
No, you can use a chef one time or on a weekly basis. Most people hire one chef to cook on a weekly basis one or two times per week.
How do I get started?
First call Whole Health Everyday owner, Rebecca Clubb, to discuss which chef may be best for you and to answer any questions you may have. Then she will set up an appointment for you to meet with her and the chef at your home to discuss an in depth list of questions about your dietary needs, meal requirements and likes/dislikes.
Are all the chefs professionally trained and trained in cooking for specialty diets?
Yes, all WHE chefs are professional chefs with a history of working with all types of diets from Paleo, Bulletproof, Vegan, Vegetarian, Cancer, Diabetes, Heart issues, Food Sensitivities, Food Allergies, and much more. Every WHE chef can take any food restriction and come up with creative delicious meals that fit your needs. It is what we do!
Can I ask the chef to make my recipes from my favorite cook book?
Yes! You may have the chef make your recipes or the chef can use their own.
If I want the chef to stay within a time/fee budget is that possible?
Yes, if you want the chef to try to stay under 4 hours then he/she will plan menus that are possible in that approximate time frame. You may ask the chef to estimate the time each week after you select the menu and make changes as you would like.
Can the chef make breakfasts, lunches and snacks as well as dinner?
Yes! We are a personal chef service and can make anything you would like. We can even do your smoothie prep work and kids lunches!
How do I reheat the meals?
When we meet to go over all the intake questions we will ask you how you prefer to heat them and the chef will give you heating instructions based on this info.
Do I have to be home when the chefs cook?
No. Most people are not home when the chef cooks but this is up to you.
How much does it cost?
Fees range from $50-75 per hour for the chefs time depending on location, dietary needs, length of commitment, number of cook date per week, availability of chefs, time of day the chef cooks, and other factors. See below for some examples. Call owner, Rebecca Clubb, to discuss your specific needs.

I was so impressed with Rebecca and her amazing staff of talented chefs. I called her last minute and she was beyond accommodating, sincere and pleasant. Not only did I call her one day before my event, but I also had a slew of dietary restrictions. Her personal chef called me that night with a delightful menu. When I shared with her my budget constraints, she offered ways that I could reduce the cost (seriously, who does that these days--especially when you pay per hour). As a very busy working professional and mom, I greatly appreciated her honesty and support to work around my budget, schedule and dietary restrictions. Plus, the food was absolutely delicious--and gluten and dairy free ! My guests loved the tasty creations and couldn't stop talking about my dinner party ! Thank you Rebecca and your amazing staff--most notably Cyndy Klein, my personal chef--for the amazing service. Top notch ! I will most definitely use their services again !
