Pantry items such as flours, vinegars, cooking wines, spices, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, etc. are a component of the mobile equipment and supply package that the food sherpa llc brings to each cook date. The cost of maintaining this mobile pantry is included in the cost of food for each personal chef package. As an alternative, the food sherpa llc is happy to stock (and continually re-stock as necessary) your personal pantry with these same items for use solely on your cook dates. The fees associated with this service are as follows:
- Initial pantry stocking fee: $20 + cost of pantry items.
- Subsequent cook date pantry re-stocking fee: $10 + cost of pantry items.
Additional Serving Fees
An additional serving fee will be charged for each additional serving (entree plus appropriate side dish) and/or additional side dish that is requested to be added to any package.
Special Diet Research Fee
Additional research is required to accommodate highly specialized diets. A fee of $50 per session will be added to the chosen package to cover the cost of the time and materials necessary to complete this specialized diet research. The amount of research required to meet client needs is continually monitored to determine when or if this fee may be waived for future cook dates.
Travel & Grocery Research Fee
A travel and grocery research fee may be charged if any or all of the following parameters are applicable:
- The client location is more than 25 miles away (one-way) from the business location.
- Research must be completed to locate acceptable grocery store(s) and/or food sources near the client location.
- The client location is particularly inconvenient due to prohibitive parking restrictions or similar limitations.
In order to hold your cook date, the food sherpa llc requires that your payment is made in full at the time your cook date is booked.
