Is Chef Dine a meal box or meal delivery service?

No, we cook the meals from start to finish so everything is ready and waiting for you. We have an extensive list of dishes which you can choose from without restrictions for each cook date which we are able to cook around your specific needs.

Our portion size is also incredibly generous so you’ll never be hungry.

How Much Do You Cook?

Our smallest amount to cook is 3 mains with 4-6 portions of each.

What Diets Do You Cook For?

We cook for many special diets

  • Paleo
  • AIP
  • Weight-Loss
  • Plant Based
  • Fertility
  • Pregnancy
  • Fitness Training
  • Fail Safe
  • Fodmap

How Often Do You Cook?

Depending on how many family members there are and their age will determine on if you require a weekly or fortnightly service. Usually a fortnightly cook date is the most common.

What Day Do You Cook?

If you have a preferred day and we have availability, then we can book in that slot.

I'm at Work, So How Does It Work?

I can provide you with a Master Lock to put your key in on the day. Once I’m done and your week of food is complete then I drop the key back into the Master Lock for you to retrieve later.

How Do I Order?

You will be provided with a login to your personal account where you can order everything in just a few clicks.

Is the Chef Vetted?

Owner Chef Jaime does all the cooks himself, but if you require a Police check please just ask.

Who Shops?

We want to use local traders so we use Your Grocer. Your Grocer will deliver the evening before your cook date so everything is ready and waiting.

I Don't Want To Use Your Grocer, Can You Shop?

We are able to shop on the morning of your cook date, a shopping fee will be added.

How Much Is Food Cost?

It really depends on the dishes chosen. Some ingredients are more expensive than others.

Choosing organic produce can increase the food cost.

What is YourGrocer' Fee?

By using YourGrocer it doesn’t cost any extra than shopping in the markets yourself.

For the delivery fee, Chef Dine include this as part of the service.

Who's The Chef?

Jaime is sole Chef and owner so the service will be second to none.

About Chef Jaime

Are Your Fertility Menus Approved?

We work closely with nutritionist Tasha Jennings N.D from Zycia who approves our fertility, pregnancy and breastfeeding dishes.

Do You Have Children's Menus?

We have menus for baby and toddlers, all made from fresh ingredients.

Is The Service Only For Mums?

No, not at all. We also cook for busy professionals, special diets, time poor individuals, families and athletes.

Who Cleans?

Your personal chef will clean the kitchen to the state it was found in. If you are lucky it may even be cleaner. So don’t worry, there won’t be a pile of washing up to do in the kitchen.

I Don't Have Much Counter Space, Is This A Problem?

Not at all, as a professional chef for 20 years I’m used to small kitchens.

How Is The Food Portioned?

I place everything into containers for you to divide if needed. I am unable to break dishes down into batches as every family is different. Number of family members and what events you have planned will affect how things are portioned. However, if you need individual portions then I am able to do this.

What Does Off The Cuff Mean?

Off The Cuff is mainly used by busy professionals when their work load increases. Being busy at work reduces the time to cook so having healthy meals in the fridge is a great option.

As a Regular User, What if I Need to Miss A Cook Date?

72 hours notice is required. If the food order has been placed this charge will be incurred.

What If I Want To Cancel The Service?

As a user of “off the cuff” you are free to go anytime. As a regular user we just ask for 10 days notice.
