FEES:
Payment for first cook date is due prior to service activation. Subsequently, all payments must be received no later than a week prior to scheduled cook day. I accept cash, check, and electronic transfer.


MENU SUBMISSION:
Because I need proper shopping and prep time to develop the highest quality cuisine, menu choices must be approved no later than 2 days prior to scheduled cook date. Should any desired menu changes not be received in a timely manner, I will go ahead with the original menu created for that week.

LOCKOUT FEE:
If client’s home is inaccessible or unsafe, service fee is nonrefundable.


RETURNED CHECKS:
Any check/payment returned for insufficient funds will result in a $35 NSF fee due prior to the next cooking date. Client will also be responsible for all charges/fees levied by the bank.


CANCELLATIONS:
If a meal plan is cancelled by the client 5 days or less from scheduled cook day, service fee is nonrefundable. In the unlikely event that the chef must cancel a scheduled cook date, a full refund will be provided to the client.
