As of April 1, 2015 – Custom Cookery is no longer taking new clients due to maternity leave. Thank you for your understanding!



Personal chef prices determine on the chef. Some charge a service fee AND the client is responsible for the food costs. Custom Cookery is different because we include the cost of groceries in our fee. The prices below reflect a weekly arrangement that includes weekly custom menu options, groceries, grocery shopping, cooking, food packaging and labeling as well as reheating instructions.


Cook days can be scheduled weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.

3 entrees – $295 (4-6 servings each)
4 entrees – $335 (4-6 servings each)
5 entrees – $375 (4-6 servings each)
Additional entrees – $40/each
Side dishes – $30/each


A family of 4 wants enough food for 5 nights per week. Melissa suggests 4 entrees and 2 side dishes for a total of $395 per week (pricing = $335 for 4 entrees and $60 for 2 side dishes at $30/each). Since each entree and side dish have 4-6 servings each, this amount will leave them with leftovers for lunches throughout the week.


4 entrees: 1. Stuffed Shells with Ricotta and Spinach, 2. Salmon in Tomato-Olive Sauce, 3. Quinoa Stuffed Peppers with Goat Cheese and 4. Baked Shrimp Scampi


2 side dishes: 1. Miso Glazed Baby Carrots, 2. Lemon Barley Pilaf with Swiss Chard
