We will still be doing our fabulous in-home service but we have added “DELIVERY”
as an option..
For a long time we have been working on this new option to provide you with healthy and nutritious food delivered to your door and now we are ready.
In the past 4 years we have encountered several occasions where our customers either could not provide us with a suitable kitchen space where we could cook or simply could not or did not want to have “strangers” in their private home and we do understand that - although we are nice people.
We have been asked for delivery by some customers, who wanted to have their meals at their workplace where no kitchen space was available, just a fridge, a freezer and a microwave or sometimes a toaster oven. They were commuting from “out of town” and they did not want to carry the meals to their workplace.
Other customers just could not let us cook in their homes for reasons of privacy, noise, pets or simply because the kitchen was not suitable for cooking multiple meals at the same time or their house was under construction for several weeks or months.
Whatever the situation was, we now have a great solution for all of this, and you would get the same quality “My Chef Lara” meals with the same great service delivered to you home or workplace.
My Chef Lara has found a wonderful commercial kitchen in Tiverton at Sandywoods Farms which fulfills all of our requirements of being clean, sanitary and equipped with the necessary appliances and working areas. There is even a function room (for up to 120 people) adjacent to the kitchen where we could offer dinners and other services to our clients.
For the last three months we have been cooking once a week in this kitchen and we streamlined our process. It was a new experience and a learning curve, coming from stoves with 2-4 burners and maybe one oven and now upgrading to a 6 burner stove top, three commercial grade convection ovens, an electric countertop griddle and a steam kettle with a capacity of up to 10 gallons of food. This device will definitely help us preparing meals for our next soup night in November.
There is also enough refrigeration available and also ample of freezer space. We had to get additional insurance and licenses and also had to update our process with some new labels and we needed to get new food safe delivery bags which will hold the cooked food outside the “food danger zone” for our deliveries.
Lots of things to tweak and conquer, but now we are ready to announce it to everyone that we are ready for it.
This service is no more expensive than our regular service in your home. We were able to hold the pricing for e.g. our staple service of 20 meals for $350 plus the grocery cost of $95 - $100 even with the additional cost for insurance, lease and delivery.
But please do not think we are cooking in bulk now. Just on the contrary, each of the services still is customized to your needs. We have made sure that we only have e.g. “gluten free” cooking days in our kitchen and each of the meals is specifically made for YOU and your needs.
If you are interested in trying this new service or to make an appointment for our in-home service, please email or give us a call at 401-831-1657 to schedule a cooking day.
We are looking forward to it.
Lara & Norbert
And then we come to your home, store the food in your fridge and / or freezer and leave until the next time.
