Enjoy the convenience of customized seasonal menus, blending restaurant quality skill with the care of home cooking. I use the best quality whole food ingredients with seasonal cooking techniques to deliver delicious accessible food. The best diet for each person is ever shifting as we ourselves adapt and change. My goal is to understand your priorities and preferences so that you can relax while I take care of dinner, nutritious delicious food made especially for you.
How it works:
Most clients prefer Nourishing Root to cook in their home. Off-site cooking and delivery is available with the additional transportation cost. For client home cooking we will finalize the menu as far in advance as possible for each session. A popular format is a four hour session in which I cook the week’s menu and clean up. Some clients prefer to shop or have the ingredients delivered before I arrive to maximize the value of chef services. If you prefer that I shop, the session may be longer than four hours depending on how many dishes are on the menu, in what volume, and the complexity of the preparation. Sessions can be weekly, bi-weekly, or tailored to your schedule. We will discuss what would work best for volumes and gage an appropriate amount of leftovers for the fridge and freezer. I can advise you on the best containers for refrigerator and freezer storage.
Nourishing Root values flexibility in cooking for different diets, serving whole foods, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and other dietary needs. To move forward, we would schedule a complimentary phone call to discuss food goals and habits, dietary and taste preferences, kitchen equipment, and scheduling preferences. The more information you can give in the beginning conversation and with feedback from the first couple sessions, the more Nourishing Root will be able to find the perfect mark of cooking for your specific palate. Each menu will be tailored to what best serves your preferences with breakfast foods, baked goods, salads and vegetables, grains, beans, sides, entrees, snacks, broths, soups, and smoothies. Nourishing Root will help you determine the menu pattern that will best suit your lifestyle.
If you'd like your menu options to be more precisely tailored with nutrient rich foods and herbs to support your individual wellness needs, choose the support of a nutritional consultation session. See Personal Dietary Consultation.
