In-home cooking packages (half-day)
Included: Initial consultation and kitchen audit, 4-6 items from menu prepared in your own kitchen, packaged and labelled with clear storage and reheating/serving instructions if required. All dishes washed, benches and stove top wiped down using earth and human-friendly cleaning methods. Fruit and vegetable scraps and trimmings taken away for composting if required. This service takes on average around half a day (4-4.5 hours), slightly longer for first visit.
*NB: Groceries not included – you can choose to provide them or for an additional charge, they can be purchased by me on the day of service and the amount will be added to your final invoice.
Cooking per hour
This service is perfect if you would prefer to to use your own recipes or ideas or for shorter 2-3 hour shifts.
Kitchen audit – declutter, assess and organise (2 or 3 hour sessions)
Does your kitchen need to be decluttered and be more efficiently organised? Would you like to know what a wholefood pantry looks like? Let me work with you to get your kitchen in tip-top shape so you can make the most of your time in it. The two hours can be spent on the areas most important to you: learning about wholefood staple pantry items, hands-on decluttering of your pantry and/or kitchen cupboards or efficient organisation of your pantry.
Does your fridge need a little love? This service is available as an add-on to any other service booked. Full clean (using non-tox products), declutter and organisation of your fridge contents with advice on most efficient storage techniques.
I shop as locally as possible at a range of selected greengrocers, butchers (free range or organic meats) or supermarkets. The choice is ultimately yours and am also happy to use your preferred stores (additional charges may apply depending on location/convenience). Perishable food is transported in commercial-grade cool boxes and ice packs at 5 degrees or less. Reusable produce and grocery bags are used to avoid generating excess waste as much as possible (particularly if shopping at bulk stores).
Would you like to take the stress out of what to cook each week? Working from a list of family favourites, I can generate weekly, fortnightly or monthly dinner plans (plus lunchbox and snack options) complete with a shopping list. We can tailor it to your specific needs i.e. working around nights when you might have sporting activities and need something on the table fast!
New-baby helping-hand packages
Pick and choose services that suit your needs: whether it be stocking your freezer, decluttering and organising, baby proofing, creating safe sleeping spaces, low-tox nursery set-up, help with practical resources (ie: useful and safe equipment and essentials – and how to source them second-hand if needed). You can even hire me to do the basics (while you sleep if needed!) such as look after baby (or other children), laundry (so much washing!!!) or cook an evening meal. Relax knowing I have hands-on experience looking after children spanning decades.
