We also require sufficient refrigerator space to store your completed meals in. Please make sure there is space before the chef’s arrival.
Upon completion of cooking, the chef will clean the areas of the kitchen used, and leave the kitchen in the same or better condition as found upon arrival. Chef’s cleaning duties include washing and putting away dishes, wiping surfaces, removing trash, and sweeping the floor. Mopping of floor will be done if needed, at chef’s discretion. Chef will double check that appliances are turned off before leaving.
For safety and sanitary reasons, pets and small children must be kept out of the kitchen/chef’s work space.
