Frequently Asked Questions
Can you accommodate special diets?
Yes! Whether you are diabetic, need to increase your fiber or are watching your salt intake, Silver Spoons Kitchen prides itself on the high level of customization available to clients. This includes heart and high blood pressure diets, diabetic or renal diets, Calcium or Vitamin D requirements, portion considerations, limits on Vitamin K, changing tastes due to chemotherpay and texture modifications.
How much does this cost?
Our personal chef services start at $150 per week, with groceries being directly reimbursed in addition. Pricing depends on how many recipes are prepared each week, the types of food being prepared (snacks vs meals) and client location.
Do I have to be home for my personal-chef service?
You don't have to do anything! :) We do, however, prefer you to be home so that we can hang out with you while we cook.
What is included in the weekly price?
Each week a chef creates a new menu that is customized just for you. They do all of the grocery shopping and come to your house armed with everything they need to prepare a week's worth of meals for you. They also bring their own spices, oils, and other kitchen "staples". In total, we spend about 5 hours on each client every week. Please contact us so we can learn more about your situation and give you a more accurate quote.
No! We know that things come up; especially with older adults. You have complete flexibility in terms of how often we come and for how long you use our services. This meals you can have a personal chef every week, every other week, once a month, only once ever, or for a month while someone is recovering -- it's all up to you!
Do I have to make any commitments?
No problem; we know plans can change. We do require that you cancel within 48 hours of your scheduled appointment. The 50% deposit we require at booking is non-refundable and will be kept for any cancellations made with less than 48 hours notice.
What if I need to cancel my appointment?
We focus on the Denver-metro area and, when schedules allow, add clients from outside our zone for an additional travel charge of $30. Clients outside the square of 104th to the north, Havana to the east, Dry Creek to the south and Ward Rd to the west are subject to this charge.
