Chef Meredith nixes the hassles and heartbreaks of meal preparation, performing the shopping, chopping, and cooking duties for homes full of busy beings. With personal-chef service for two ($215 for six shareable entrees; $300 for ten), Chef Meredith swoops in with her own cookware and pre-gathered ingredients before preparing dishes such as paella with shrimp and chicken or low-fat black bean soup, helping clients free up an average of 10 hours per week for non-cooking pursuits such as playing with the kids or learning Esperanto. Post-prep, Meredith populates fridges with ready-to-eat meals bearing simple reheating instructions and tailored to each eater’s dietary preference.
