Taichef offers a variety of customized meal-prep services based on personal preferences, dietary restrictions, nutrition goals, schedules, and lifestyle. Based on the individual needs of each and every client, I develop meal prep and service plans that support busy urban families, seniors with modified diets, and special dinner occasions in the San Francisco Bay Area. Let me make your life a little easier.
Chef T'ai Rubens completes all services personally from start to finish.
Meal Prep for Families
Life in the Bay Area is nothing short of busy. Who wouldn't benefit from having one less thing to worry about? My family-oriented meal plans provide shopping, cooking, and cleaning up so kids and parents can spend more time doing what they love outside the kitchen.
Meal prep services are typically three hours of cooking and prepping the meals in your home, plus the grocery shopping and menu building for the week. Each meal prep is unique to the client, focusing on dinners, lunches, or a combination of both.
"We have been working with Chef T'ai for several weeks now and have loved having him cook for our family! The best part is being able to eat healthy, home cooked meals without any of the work =) Chef is extremely professional, responsive, and does a great job cleaning up when he's done with our kitchen. We have particularly loved his pastas and Asian dishes but his repertoire is large and we have had some yummy new dishes as well (like Peruvian stew!). Even our picky toddler will eat Chef's delicious dishes! Highly recommend Chef T'ai if you're looking to save time, eat healthy, or just need a change of pace to your cooking routine."

"Leading up to the event, he was highly responsive and committed to making sure the details of the event went well. He worked with us on building out a customized, Southeast Asian menu to our liking.
During the day of the event, he and his partner for the day (Chef Justin) were timely and professional, and they brought a lot of positive energy to make for a great atmosphere for our dinner party!"

Looking for a unique party? Let me share my decades of experience and lead a class in basic knife skills, learn the art of braising, poaching, or sauteeing, or let me take your group out to the market and teach you how to pick out the best proteins where we will take them home and cook a meal together. I will work with you, your time frame, and the number of guests to create an experience that everyone will enjoy and walk away from learning something new.
*Kitchen needs to be provided for the party.
