My Services

In-Home Weekly Gourmet Prepared Meals

I prepare all meals from scratch and utilize techniques from a variety of ethnic-inspired cuisines. In addition, I can customize gourmet meals to fit any special diet including, but not limited to Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Vegan, Raw & Diabetic.  Accommodating for any food allergies and sensitivities is a top priority! Healthy prepared meals that meet any dietary restrictions cost nothing extra.

Personalized grocery shopping is where I begin.  I source and use a wide variety of local, organic ingredients whenever possible, and encourage my clients to buy directly from local farms.  I will happily incorporate any ingredients you already have into your menu.  I also love to shop wherever my clients do and work hard to save you money on groceries.  You have the added benefit of accompanying me to the grocery store/farmer’s market, if you so choose, for me to guide you in selecting healthy ingredients.

Here is what you can expect from my weekly gourmet meal preparations

I will come to your home for several hours to plan, shop, cook, clean up and stock your refrigerator and/or freezer with delicious, healthy meals to easily reheat.  Each client is at liberty to decide how many meals and portions they need per week.  I create and customize menus to fit each client’s specific preferences and dietary needs.   Working directly with each client to tailor my services to your budget ultimately gives you a lot of control over what my weekly gourmet meal prep services cost.

Cooking Classes & Demonstrations

Each cooking lesson is tailored to the client’s unique and specific desires.  This customized service includes planning, shopping, cooking and clean up. Pricing will depend on the time used and the cost of your ingredients at the grocery store and/or farmer’s market. 

Want to share this experience with friends or family?  Group lessons are a fun way to learn how to prepare and cook with others!

After we are finished whipping up your gourmet creations, you have the added benefit of enjoying a delicious meal that you helped create.  What an empowering and fulfilling experience!

I am passionate when it comes to working with children and empowering them to feel confident and excited to get into the kitchen.  My 6 year old daughter loves assisting me, as well as coming up with her own delicious creations! I offer food preparation and cooking classes specially geared for children, one-on-one and in small groups.  They are a huge hit for birthdays, celebrations and pure FUN!

Gift cards are available for purchase.

Why choose Medicinal Gourmet?  Because no other personal chef in the Naples area cooks the way I do: delectable, wholesome menus, totally from scratch, personalized for you and your event only.  My carefully planned events can include anything from a few casual hors d’oeuvres, to a formal multi-course gourmet dinner with drink pairings.  Your event is unique, therefore your food should be also!
