iCookuEat Personal Chef Services - Old Bridge, NJ - Portrait

What the Fork is happening in your kitchen?

If the answer to that question is nothing, then why don’t you get yourself a personal chef? If you find that you barely have the time to read this, I’ll make it quick. Central Jersey is now home to iCookuEat Personal Chef Services. This boutique chef service is providing amazing meals to areas within Central New Jersey and New York City and is owned by Karyn Cardenas (a former engineer and IT analyst).

What’s so special about.. personal chefs and why do you need one? Well, let’s start with what a personal chef does. A personal chef creates a customized menu based upon an initial food consultation with a client. It is here where we find out what makes the client tick, what do they like and what are they open to. Its equally important to find out their dislikes and allergies. Based on this feedback, a menu is created.
Upon client approval we will shop for the freshest ingredients, come to your home and prepare, package and label all meals with heating instructions. We firmly adhere to all food safety guidelines and precautions. What’s also great about having a personal chef is that once the meals are prepared, iCookuEat will leave your kitchen clean and tidy. The only evidence of our presence in your home is the aroma wafting from your kitchen and your refrigerator filled with delicious home made meals.
iCookuEat approaches each meal as an opportunity to create a culinary experience by using simple, fresh and seasonal ingredients. iCookuEat focuses on the customer by providing completely personalized menus and meal plans. We always “think outside the Styrofoam box”. .

Tired of bouncing between the Bermuda Food Triangle of deli, pizzeria and ready-made supermarket foods? Look no more. iCookuEat clients come home, unwind and enjoy gourmet meals prepared with only them in mind.
Personal chef prices are based on the number of entrees prepared for the client. On average entrees can cost between $11.00 to $24.00 depending upon the number of entrees.
Our clients have looked at the cost effectiveness and the “time is money” factor of having their meals prepared for them. With a personal chef you can save time by removing that drive to the market, using extra gas and wasting mileage. On a client’s scheduled cook date, we offer a complimentary “iForgot” service of up to 5 items. We only pass the retail cost of the items to the client.

Personal cheffing is a steadily growing industry. Personal chefs are becoming a part of the outsourcing norm…and NOT among the elite but for the super busy and over scheduled. According to the United States Personal Chef Association (www.uspca.com) “..there are just over 5,000 personal chef businesses operating in the United States and Canada, up from 1,500 a decade ago.”

It is common to outsource business services (office help, courier services, information technology) and personal errands (house cleaning, gardening, dry cleaning)...why not extend that to putting dinner on the table? You’re guaranteed customized, healthy, delicious meals AND a clean kitchen. It really doesn’t get any better than that.

Our clients range from the busy professional who wants a gourmet meal at home to the retired active adult that’s so active…they don’t have time to cook. Not to mention our super busy stay-at-home Moms who may have their own businesses, but still want to ensure the family has time to eat together AND eats healthy.

Young fathers who want to secure their "Father of the Year" awards can help our new Moms adjust to motherhood by removing the issue of meal preparation. Personal chefs can help the parents focus on the most important things in life...the baby and trying get more sleep.
We can also accommodate clients with low-fat/low-salt/heart friendly and diabetic concerns. Or we can be a resource when starting a new diet plan. We’re also a great gift for any occasion (birthday, anniversary, holiday, employee incentives, proposal dinners, etc…)

iCookuEat Personal Chef services can answer the daily “what’s for dinner?” question. Give us a call and we’ll find out together.
