Life of Riley operates on a service fee plus the cost of groceries. This gives you more control over the total cost since the cost of groceries is determined by which menu selections you choose.
The service fee includes:
- Initial Complimentary Client Consultation to determine your needs, likes and dislikes, and to discuss how the service works.
- Menu Planning – you will choose entrees from our extensive menus ahead of time, and they will be paired with an appropriate side dish, chosen by the chef and based on your preferences. Each week’s menu will be printed for you and brought along to leave with the prepared food.
- Grocery Shopping at the beginning of each cooking date to choose the freshest ingredients available for your meals.
- Food Preparation in your kitchen, as well as packaging, labeling, and storing in either the refrigerator or freezer.
- Printed Heating Instructions for each specific entrée and side dish.
- Kitchen Cleanup – leaving your kitchen beautifully clean and filled with the delicious scents of a day of cooking.
