PERSONAL CHEF SERVICES
Healthy Meals. Customized to Your Diet. Delivered to Your Door.
At Gather Around Nutrition, we understand how difficult and time-consuming it can be to eat healthy or adopt a new therapeutic diet. This is why we created Gather Around Nutrition, to support our clients with this process. Working one-on-one with a therapeutic private chef allows you to receive customized meals and snacks delivered to you as often as you need. For busy professionals or families, this is a great alternative to take out and grab-and-go meals, as ours are sure to be more nutrient-dense, free of refined sugars, processed oils, refined salts (sodium), and full of healthy proteins, vegetables, and flavor
As nutritionists, we have experience cooking for all types of diets. We cook with what's in season and locally available, which ensures maximum tastiness and nutrition. And the Earth appreciates it too!
HERE'S HOW IT LOOKS:
1. Following a complete intake in which we learn about your dietary preferences and health goals, we will design unique and customized menus for you every week (or however often you wish to receive services).
2. We send out our customized menus on Friday. Then over the weekend, you select menu items that look best.
3. The following week, we prepare all your meals and deliver them to your home on your day of service.
Meals can be portioned into containers however you like, and can be made freezer-friendly if desired. Service can be weekly, biweekly, triweekly or monthly. We are also happy to cook in your own or kitchen space, as long as enough dedicated space can be provided to guarantee safety during the pandemic.
We are now offering Gift Certificates for a week's worth of Personal Chef services. This allows you to trial our services for one week without committing to ongoing services. It also makes a great gift for essential workers or loved ones who may need extra support right now.
Johanna makes the highest-vibe, farm-to-fork deliciousness you can imagine and she makes it beautiful, too. She catered a party for Portland Conscious Transformation at my house yesterday and I am so happy there are leftovers because, YUM. We had about 50 people and lots of dietary preferences and allergies. She made sure everybody was fed WELL. Good oils, good salts, good veggies, good meats... her sauces are ridiculous and there was an incredible amount of LOVE in that food. Highly recommend her for your conscious food needs!

I am a single father of a 16-year-old daughter and a business owner—my schedule is hectic! I am also a whole food plant-based vegan who places a high value on feeding myself and my daughter very healthy organic food. We informed Jed that we were strictly whole food plant-based and we also consumed no oil. Jed informed us that cooking that way would be no problem and he would provide us a new menu every week. The very first week that Jed came to our home to prepare our weekly menu, we were blown away. Jed filled our refrigerator with whole food plant-based meals cooked with no oil that were more delicious than anything we had ever had at any restaurant!! The menu changed every week and the quality and taste of the food was always outstanding. Jed became part of our weekly routine and we could not wait for Tuesdays to come because that was the day Jed was coming with new food!

Johanna has been a personal chef for us for a few months now and it's a game-changer! She's been cooking delicious vegetarian Ayurvedic meals for us and they've been very nutritious and delicious. She's very dependable. She arrives on time and leaves a spotless kitchen when she's done cooking. Johanna also is flexible and if we have extra veggies she'll figure out something delicious to make with it on the spot! She works with us in creating a meal plan for the week and she's very attentive in understanding what we like and don't like. I highly recommend Johanna.

We are so grateful for Jed and his cooking! We weren't sure what to expect when we signed up for a personal chef service (everyone's taste in food varies so widely) but we ended up being blown away by the experience overall. Jed is not only an incredible chef but he took every measure to ensure he was customizing the menu and service specifically for our family. He is reliable, respectful, and delivered the same high quality of food week after week. The process was seamless and in the end we felt like we had a new member of the family!
