Why book a home cooking service through Airtasker?

Let Airtasker connect you to the best home cook ​in your area! When you’re short on time, food preparation often takes the backseat. As stress levels rise, our instinct is to reach for food that’s easy, readily available and convenient. However, these kinds of food may not be what our body needs. Delicious as they may be, they might not be good for you in the long run.

Hiring a Tasker to provide home cooking allows you to enjoy food prepared just like mum’s or grandmum’s without having to labour hours and hours in the kitchen. Leave the slicing and dicing to us while you get that bread, figuratively, for the family.

This is an excellent option for busy parents or those living on their own. Home-cooked meals prepared specially for you will eliminate those moments deciding which takeaway to get daily. If you’re ready to start, select that pink “Post a Task” button. Taskers in your area would love to help!

Top Home Cooking related questions

Is home-cooked food healthier?

Good home-cooked meals are generally believed to be healthier than fast food or takeaway. Ordering out all the time is not only more costly. It can also take a toll on your health since they are either deep-fried or full of salt and sugar. Having a cook prepare your meals for you assures you that ingredients are fresh. If you want an even healthier option, you can also opt to hire a personal trainer or get advice from a nutritionist.

Will I need to prepare my kitchen when I hire a home cook?

Home cooks can come to your home once a week and cook in your kitchen. This allows you to see how your food is prepared. However, if you don’t have enough kitchen space or would rather have your food delivered instead, home-cooked food delivery is possible too! Just ask your Tasker to cook the meals and have them delivered to your home or office after.

How often can a home cook come to my home?

Usually, home cooks can come to your home or send food weekly. However, if you would instead book a home cook to prepare dishes for a group gathering or only need food delivered on a particular day, that’s not a problem. Hiring a home cook to prepare your meals every day is also possible. Just include your preferred frequency when you put up a task!

How do I know my meals are prepared safely?

Each Tasker who sent you an offer will have reviews and ratings from previous clients. These can guide you in choosing the right one. When planning your menu and meals, your hired home cook can consider dietary requirements, allergies, and intolerances to avoid health issues. You can opt to have your Tasker cook in your home. If the meals are prepared in their own kitchen, feel free to request a virtual inspection. 

What’s the difference between a home cook and a personal chef?

Personal chefs have usually had years of experience cooking in a commercial setting and could have earned a degree in their craft. A home cook may not have the professional training that a personal chef has, but don’t mistake for one second that the food and service they provide are less. Home cooks use their kitchen skills to bring you delicious food prepared just like how mum or grandmum would!

Can a Tasker also help me with other home chores?

We understand that there could be a lot of things going on. A working mum with two little kids will barely have time to sleep, let alone keep the household spotless. Allow a Tasker to lend you a hand. There are cleaning, laundry and babysitting Taskers ready to connect with you! Just put up a task, pick a Tasker, and you’re all set.

What do home cooking services include?

Hiring a home cook can change your overall eating experience. You can have home-cooked meals delivered when you’re craving something similar to your mum’s beef brisket or sticky toffee pudding recipe. Hiring a Tasker to prepare meals for you on an ongoing basis can remove the constant thinking about where to get healthy yet tasty home cooked food near you. Here’s what you can expect when you hire a home cook on Airtasker:

In-house cook

When you don’t have time to cook at home, meals can often be limited to what’s nearby and available. Hiring a Tasker to cook in your home allows you to enjoy hearty breakfasts and flavourful dinners without any hassle. There’s no need to block off portions of your day to slave away in the kitchen when you’re already too busy with work and other things to do on your list. Think of it as having your own personal chef, but the recipes can be more familiar and comforting.

Meals can be prepared one-time when you have family visiting or have batches of food prepared already for the week. Eliminate tasks like going to the grocery, cooking and cleaning up by hiring a Tasker to do all of it for you! Dig in a plate of yummy home-style baked pasta without lamenting about how to clean your oven.

Meal prepping and planning

Healthy eating can require a lot of time and effort when done by yourself. Hiring a home cook means you don’t have to struggle coming up with meal ideas, too! Let your Tasker know your dietary requirements and taste preferences. They can regularly visit to cook, store and freeze your menu for the week. If you prefer they cook at home, delivery of meals can be arranged as well. No more worrying about where to get reliable food delivery every mealtime. Just open up your fridge and take out what your Tasker prepared for that day. Pop it in the microwave or reheat it on a stovetop. Voilà, delicious food that’s ready to eat!

Dinner parties and catering

Get a home cook to cater for your dinner party or Sunday lunch. Instead of spending hours in the kitchen to prepare an impressive meal or bothering about pot luck, you and your guests can sit back and enjoy each other’s company. Your friends and family will appreciate being served meals that remind them of their childhood favourites. You can even ask your Tasker to use a family recipe if you want.

Hi there My partner and I are not passionate cooks but love to eat healthy, fresh meals. We’ve tried Hello Fresh, Lite and Easy etc. and they’re ok but we’d love to find someone who loves to cook and cater to healthy vegetarian needs. We’d love to trial 3 meals per week (to feed 2 people) initially with the view to building it up from there. If there’s anyone local to Yarraville who is already prepping meals for their family and is happy to cook extras (and get paid) then this is the task for you. Thank you!

I received 6 dinners this afternoon and what can I say - WOW - they look incredible. Restaurant quality meals! I have yet to try one but I have every faith they’ll taste as delicious as they look. Thanks Adam! I’m v happy!
