Personalized And Delicious
The experience of having a personal chef is more than just eating delicious food, it's a close relationship that proves to be invaluable to everyone involved. We truly believe in the personal aspect of our job. Every individual has certain preferences, likes & dislikes, and tendencies. We truly understand that and always personalize each meal based off of those aspects to make each experience a memorable one.
At MyChef, our goal is to provide a Chef cooked meal in the comfort of your own kitchen. Whether you live a hectic lifestyle and simply don't have the time, don't really care to cook, or have a specific dietary need, our service is well rounded to meet any demands that life presents.
Safety & Care
While cooking great food is certainly our main priority, we do not overlook the necessity of safe food practices. All of our chef's are trained regularly on safe food practices. We are all food handler certified in Missouri and have also completed the ServSafe Certification course for industry professionals. We will do whatever we can to make you feel safe & comfortable with us preparing your food.
