Full Plate 2019 -20 Services & Prices
This is your food, from your kitchen, to your table. But relax! I do the work, so you can be a guest, in your own home! Just pay for my time, and REIMBURSE ME for the groceries,
Services includes: meal planning; grocery shopping; fully prepared dishes; and a clean kitchen.
1) Base Package: Dinner or Brunch for Four—
We’ll develop a custom menu; I'll send a proposal for approval. On the appointed day, I'll shop, and arrive to prepare dinner (salad, entree, and a side dish) or brunch (seasonal fruit salad, breakfast strata or frittata, and coffee cake) from your kitchen.
You'll have enough for 4 people, plus leftovers for a second meal.
This is skillfully prepared, really delicious home-cooked meal(s) table-ready when you are! Simply set your table, and when dinner's ready, you dig in, while I clean-up the kitchen and "Exit...stage left."
2019-20 Base Package Pricing: $155 (plus reimbursement for the actual cost of the groceries).
$110 labor / visit (the base price is for four people —just add $10 per person for each added guest)
$45 grocery shopping service fee
Plus the actual cost of groceries (receipts provided).
2) Week-of-Meals Package — four meals —
Perfect for a busy, working family, or if you're entertaining out-of-town guests! It also makes a thoughtful gift for someone recovering from surgery, or after the loss of a loved-one.
We’ll develop a custom menu; I'll send a proposal for approval. On the appointed day, I'll shop, and arrive to spend a half-day in your / their kitchen preparing four main-course entrees.
One entree is for that day (just add a salad and side dish!) — the remaining entrees go into the fridge or freezer. (Portions are family-sized for 4-6 people, so if you're a couple, you'll get at least two meals out of each entree).
2019-20 Prices: $380 (plus reimbursement for the actual cost of the groceries). For FOUR meals, this is a screaming deal! It breaks down as follows:
$320 for a single-session booking
$50 grocery shopping service fee
Actual cost of groceries.
3) Grocery Shopping SERVICES —
My high-school grocery-store job gave me a life-long love for this task. I'm really happy wandering the aisles, grocery shopping for you! (Yes, I know how to-hunt for good deals, and how-to select the freshest produce and meats.)
Just give me your list. Then let me do the leg work and drop off for you.
$40 for a grocery bill up-to $100
$50 for a grocery bill between $100 and $200
Groceries more than $200, the service fee will be 20 percent of your grocery total.
Add $5 for each additional store required or requested and $10 if you specify Costco.
3) For DESERT Vacationers / VISITORS —
Visiting Palm Springs for some fun-in-the-sun? Don’t waste time in the grocery store or kitchen! Let me do the Grocery Shopping for you, to stock up your rental house with the staples you specify; then add-on a Base Package for your first-night dinner, or a Week-of-Meals.
We can nail down your grocery list just a day or two ahead. Then, you can either:
Provide me with vacation-home entry instructions so that I can pack it in before you arrive (I'm licensed and insured). Or...
Arrange a specific time for your groceries to be delivered once you’ve arrived.
For pricing, see relevant sections above.
More than four people: $10-per-head for each added family-member or guest, not-to-exceed-ten. My focus is intimate meals, so if you have a large group and need caterer referrals, please let me know, I'm happy to help you find someone.
Appetizers: $35 per appetizer (each serves 4-6 people)
Desserts: $35 per dessert (serves 4-6 people).
Table Service: for $100 I'll stick around to bring the dishes to the table with / for you; help you serve; and then clean up after the meal (dishwasher loaded…leftovers wrapped and stored)
Brunch Fritatta or Strata: $35. One of my favorite things to make for brunch... so you can just heat-and-eat for an upcoming breakfast.
