MEET OUR CHEFS

Meet our beautiful community of independent chefs! Each one has unique training, offerings, and experience, but all cook with LOVE.

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 conscious eating 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 depending on food style, chef’s experience, logistics, and guest count, and while all chefs set their own rates, we adhere to industry standards. Newer chefs will have lower rates so they can gain experience, and seasoned chefs will charge professional rates.
In general, expect to pay between $45-75/hour + cost of food + service charge + tax.
Some chefs will have preset menus available that charge per person rather than an hourly. Seated dinner rates are typically per guest for over 6-10 guests.
Meal prep and delivery rates may be per person (for established meal delivery providers) or hourly + cost of food for personalized offerings.
Please let us know what your ideal budget* and desired menu are when you contact us so we can pair you with a chef within your range. There is never any charge for connection.

sample menus 
We work with a community of yoga chefs with unique training, philosophies, and life experiences; and so each will have unique menus.
Some chefs are more comfortable with casual family-oriented work, and some prefer high-end five-star seated dinners work.
All chefs have work with local ingredients and farmers to create vegan and plant-based menus for sit down dinners, but some may also offer Ayurvedic, raw vegan, paleo, pescatarian, farm-to-table (plant-based and/or meat and poultry), along with other styles.
Please contact us directly so we can connect you with a chef, or chefs, in your area who offers the style of cuisine you are looking for. There is never any charge for connection.
