Personal Chef Serving Santa Rosa and Sonoma County

Do you go out to eat a lot just because you don't have time to cook? Do you find yourself sacrificing nutrition for the sake of speed? Do you even wonder just what's in those TV dinners?

Imagine, instead, coming home at the end of a long day to find that your personal chef has prepared a healthy and delicious meal for you and your family.

I will come to your kitchen and cook several days' worth of meals personalized to your family's tastes. I leave your fridge full of ready to eat meals and your kitchen sparkling. I even take the vegetable peelings home for my chickens.

With a wide variety of fresh vegetables, lean meats, good fats and whole-grain baked goods, Summersong is a great choice for maintaining your best health.

My dishes rely on the freshest of ingredients for their terrific flavor and nutritional value, so I don't cook more than three days' worth of food at a time. Most personal chefs only come once a week, but who wants to eat a dish that's been sitting in the fridge for five days? You decide how many meals you want me to cook. If you want a full week's worth of meals I would come twice a week, but I also can come once a week or just for special occasions if that's what you need.

I use local and organic ingredients whenever possible. I use grass-fed beef and butter from Petaluma. I first look for ingredients at our farmer's markets to bring you the freshest possible food.

I am based in Santa Rosa but I am happy to travel anywhere in Sonoma County.
