IT ALL STARTED WHEN ORLANDO CASTRO
WAS YOUNG AND HIS MOM TAUGHT HIM ABOUT COSTA RICAN CUISINE...
Orlando was always interested in cuisine at a young age. In his early 20's and cooking for family and friends, he became passionate as what he prepared always seemed to be a success!
I will do the grocery shopping to save you time and make sure we are getting the freshest ingredients at the best price for no extra fee. Your total will be my hourly service fee + the cost of groceries.
My rate is $100 per hour for personal chef services. The number of people, courses, and menu items could significantly increase or decrease the total fee. Please contact me for consultation and quote.
Grocery deposit and 50% of service fee is required in advance. Payment methods are personal check, credit card, or cash.
Imagine a great meal without the kitchen mess! Don't waste your time, I will clean up the kitchen after I have prepared and served or packaged your meals.
Orlando has worked in the culinary industry in Costa Rica, Washington DC, and Minnesota along with traveling to many other countries exploring different types of food and ingredients. He decided to share both his talent and experience with food modalities from across the globe with you, your family, and friends at your home and is located in the Twin Cities, MN.
I can save you time, stress, and money on groceries you wouldn't need by planning and cooking your meals. I'll be in the kitchen and you can be enjoying your time with your family and friends.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR MY VISIT?
Please leave me with a clean kitchen to cook, clear countertops and an empty sink for me to do prep, and space in your refrigerator if I will be packaging/storing meals for you. If we have agreed on using your own kitchen equipment, please have it accessible for my use. And you can choose to be home or not, just remember my job is in the kitchen!

ABOUT THE PERSONAL CHEF SERVICE
AS YOUR PRIVATE CHEF, THE GLOBAL CHEF CREATES GOURMET CUISINE IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME
I will start with a consultation at your home to determine your dietary needs, culinary preferences, and food budget. Together we will create a menu plan with gourmet cuisine to satisfy family and friends tastebuds and meet all your dietary needs. We can then determine presentation and serving style. Do you want meals for your family packaged and labeled for later with heating instructions? Are you looking for a variety of small plates for a group of friends garnished and served? How about family style or buffet for a large party? There are many options and the choice is yours!
