Meet Chef Rody. She is fairly new to the Greater Danbury Area, originally from Montreal Canada, now living in Ridgefield.
She ended up here when met and fell for Tim, a charismatic gentleman living in Connecticut. The long distance relationship blossomed, and Rody joined Tim in the USA.
Rody is a Chef who put herself through Culinary School while raising two, now grown boys. Her training is in the French Culinary Cuisine. Her focus is on techniques that bring out the most flavors in food naturally.
After graduating, Chef Rody worked in various restaurants, including Universel Desjeuners, a popular restaurant in Downtown Montreal. Here she got her first experience as an Executive Chef, setting up the kitchen, ordering supplies, cooking, creating new menu items and managing the kitchen staff. A couple of years later, Rody left the restaurant business to pursue her passions, which led her to become a Personal Chef.
Rody founded My Chef To Go, and set up shop here in Brookfield in 2014. Services include a Personal Chef Service which aims to “Make Your Dinner Simple”. Cooking is done in the client’s home. Chefs and their kitchen helper grocery shop, cook, portion dinners in single serving containers, and clean up the kitchen. All you need to do is heat and eat. A company philosophy is cooking from scratch. They use original recipes and fresh ingredients purchased by the Chef that morning.
Personal Chefs are not like Private Chefs. Rather than working with one client, Personal Chefs work with many clients making the cost more affordable. Preparations of five complete meals for 4 people, including shopping and clean up take approximately 6 hours. The company charges $60/ hour.
Chefs and their kitchen helpers travel and work as a team. The Chefs must be certified. The company is bonded, insured and all employees go through a background check.
The process begins with a FREE consultation to assess needs, allergies and food preferences.
Her vision for her new enterprise is to give people back much needed time. “By letting My Chef To Go do the shopping and cooking you will have more time, approximately 7-10 hours a week to do more important things“.
Just like busy people outsource landscaping, house cleaning and other time consuming but necessary tasks, she believes that it is cost effective and healthier to outsource food shopping and meal preparation instead of wasting food or eating processed food from a box or a quick serve restaurant.
To introduce you to the Chef and the menu items, My Chef To Go is offering 6 hours for the price of 3, definitely a treat for a busy or stressful time. Call Chef Rody for pricing and details or visit her website at www.mycheftogo.com
They also cook for Special Events, and offer personalized Private Cooking Lessons in your home. The services are especially popular as gifts for birthdays, for a new Mom and Dad, a client appreciation, or new graduates heading off on their own, new brides, employee reward, Mother’s Day gifts. The list does go on!!
Her key to success and her advice is to, “be good and take care of yourself FIRST! Nourish your body, mind and soul. Then you will be able to take care of the people and things you love.” Rody makes time to enjoy canoeing and working out at the gym. On her “Bucket List” is to visit every Baseball Park in the country.
