What is a Personal Chef?

A Personal Chef is your key to having well balanced, healthy, and wholesome meals prepared and ready for you and your family at the time you choose. Michael Carillo at your service allows you to know in advance "What’s for dinner" and affords you the time to enjoy your meal and your family in a leisurely, relaxed manner.

How does the service work?

At our first meeting we will get to know each other. I will want to have each person who will be enjoying this service present at this preliminary meeting, especially children. We will discuss your special needs, preferences, and expectations. It is important for me to gain an understanding of your family’s likes and dislikes in order to make sure that your meals surpass expectations. We will also decide on a schedule for my cooking visits. I will want to look over your kitchen and pantry on this visit

After you have decided that having a Personal Chef will enhance your life I will plan your meals for the next one or two weeks. I will arrive at your home at the designated day and time having shopped for the freshest ingredients available. The meals are cooked in your kitchen, appropriately packaged and labeled with instructions for final preparation and presentation. You will come home that day to a clean kitchen and a house filled with the wonderful aroma of the day's cooking. Your fridge will be full of appetizing meals for your family to enjoy. You will be relieved of the drudgery of grocery shopping and free to share with your family the time you would otherwise spend cooking.

Before each visit I will send you a menu of meal selections. Of course I will prepare special request items if you do not see something you would like in my offerings.

I also prepare meals for special events: birthdays, club meetings, large and intimate dinner parties, barbecue, picnics, tailgate parties, your imagination is the only limit.

Personal Chef serving: Birmingham, Vestavia, Homewood, Hoover, Greystone, Cahaba Heights, Mountain Brook, Inverness, and the surrounding areas.
