DinnerStyle helps people enjoy the pleasure of daily home-cooked meals.

 Personal Chef

DinnerStyle is a personal chef service, all about fresh, inspired cooking made just for you. Imagine coming home after a hectic day to find a selection of delicious meals waiting for you and your family to savor at your leisure – and you don’t have to do any of the grocery shopping, cooking or cleaning up!

How it works

Karen will interview you in order to assemble a detailed assessment of what foods you’d like to eat. She’ll custom-design a menu plan tailored to your needs, and when you sign off, a cooking day will be scheduled.

On your cooking day, Karen will shop for your groceries at farmer’s markets (in season) and such local stores as Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Bob’s Seafood or Dierberg’s, and bring them to your home along with her traveling kit of cookware and utensils. She’ll prepare the meals you have chosen, then carefully package, label and place them in your refrigerator or freezer. She will leave detailed instructions for heating and/or assembling your meals. Afterward she will clean and sanitize your kitchen, leaving it spotless.

DinnerStyle meets many lifestyle needs:

  • Lovers of good food who too often come home weary from working, traveling or running errands to find there’s nothing planned for dinner.
  • Time-starved people who are tired of dining out at restaurants and eating frozen convenience foods loaded with fat, sodium and preservatives.
  • People who want to eat more healthfully by incorporating fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and seafood into their diet, without sacrificing flavor.
  • Anyone with a taste for gourmet food, but no time or desire to cook.
  • New parents who could use a break from cooking once or twice a week.

These are all perfect reasons to meet with Karen and start enjoying the benefits of her service, which will leave you with more time to spend relaxing with family and friends.

Gift Certificates

A gift of home-cooked meals is always appreciated, and would be perfect for families celebrating a housewarming, wedding or new baby, as well as a thoughtful way to help someone through stressful times.

Wine Pairing, Wine Tasting Classes

Wine with dinner is a natural – it enhances everyday meals and makes eating even more of a sensory pleasure. Experienced as a wine consultant, Karen can create a fabulous menu to showcase special wines from your collection.

Those looking to further their interest in wine can let Karen arrange a wine-tasting event at their home. Invite some friends, fill your wine glass and enjoy!

Cooking Classes and Demonstrations

Sit back in your own home while Karen shows you and your guests how to cook with the freshest ingredients – or better yet, grab a knife and join in! Cooking parties are a fun way to learn new tricks, try some interesting flavors and entertain friends for a Girls’ or Guys’ night out.
