Most clients are serviced on a weekly or bi-monthly schedule.  The chef comes to your home and prepares all the dishes and stores them in glass pyrex containers in the refrigerator.

It varies according to the package you order.  For package 1, the chef will be in your kitchen for about 3.5 – 4 hours.

Most dishes freeze well with the exception of salads.

It is best to reheat just the portion of food you want to eat in a pot/skillet stovetop with a little water or oil to coat the bottom of the pot/pan.  Insert the food, cover and simmer for about 5 minutes.  Mix and serve.  Alternatively, you will be able to heat the food up in a 275 degree F oven for about 10-15 minutes until heated through.  I do not recommend using the microwave oven to heat the food.  It has been reported that it changes the molecular structure of the food.
