what makes our chefs different 

A conscious chef is someone whose work revolves around healing with food, respecting the earth, and wanting to offer more to the profession than the classic hectic restaurant paradigm. None of our chefs are identical. Each has their own specialties, own style, and own life experience to share through their food. All of our chefs embody the following qualities:

*A passion for food, wellness, and human connection

*Working knowledge of various cuisine styles and dietary restrictions

*Calm, personable demeanor, and ability to work calmly in open kitchens

*Personal relationships with local farmers and food purveyors

*Knowledge of local and seasonal ingredients

*Holistic health-minded in work and life

*Able to create customized menus for a variety of specialty diets and allergies

*A knowledge that LOVE is the most important ingredient we can put into food.

meal prep services

Services may vary by chef and are as unique as you are. While all chefs can customize services for you, some chefs offer batched meal deliveries for a more affordable price point. Please send us a message so we can pair you with a local chef who aligns with your specifications. Some examples to inspire: 

*Meals delivered ready to eat to your door in cute mason jars & Tupperware

what is a yoga chef?
Yoga literally means “to yoke” – meaning to combine mind, body, spirit, and practice. Just as we combine these qualities on the mat, so can we in the kitchen. As yoga retreats become more prolific, there is a growing need for grounded conscious chefs to cook for retreats, individuals, and groups. We are here to support this movement!
investment
We honor our chefs to set their own rates and define their own worth. Rates vary greatly depending on food style, preparation complexity, travel, chef’s experience, logistics, food cost, and guest count.
For example, a custom meal plan will be more expensive than a chef who cooks for fifty clients per week with the same offerings. A menu with the same sides every day will be more affordable than new sides with every entree.
Plan on spending $150-$500 for each delivery or onsite preparation of meals. Some chefs bill at a flat rate, and some bill hourly plus food cost.
Yes, this is a wide range! Let us know your ideal budget when you contact us, and we’ll let you know what to expect and who we can pair you with in your area.
