"Christine quickly responded to our request to have a Japanese inspired meal for four people and 1 child. She came up with a menu that was so professional and delivered with the best cooking I have ever encountered in all of my experience in dining! She is so passionate about her cooking and that certainly showed in her 8 dishes. She created an ambiance by providing the best seasonal saki and Japanese head bands to wear. 👌fantastic experience Would high recommend "

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.

Asian and middle eastern cooking are favorites, Italian is good, like other cuisines too when done well.

Home cooked meals

$150

Melbourne VIC, Australia

25th Sep 2022

I'm looking for a cook/chef to prepare some meals for me once per week, every week, on an ongoing basis. I am time poor and normally eat out, but sometimes it's better if it is home cooked :) I am flexible about the amount of meals but I thought a starting point could be 5 meal types and 2 servings of each, once per week - so 10 x servings per week. I eat basically everything but prefer to avoid heavy carbs (bread, pasta, wheat) and prefer larger servings of protein, so the kinds of things I would be looking for are: - Chicken + vegetable + rice - Steak + salads of any kind - Roasts of any kind - Any stews and soups Etc I am open minded about the practical aspects of the arrangement but I am happy for either: (1) You to prepare the meals at your house; or (2) You to prepare the meals at my place. I live in the CBD, opposite Queen Vic market and also opposite a Woolworths so it would be easy to do this at my place. I am flexible with payment method but I think re-imbursement of groceries plus an hourly rate would work well! If you have done this before I'm happy to hear the method that you prefer etc. - Due date: Before Tuesday, 4 October 2022

I'm looking for someone to come home 2 times a week, and help with cooking home food. I'm hoping that you'll be able to bulk cook chappatis and 3 sabjis each visit. I'm looking at help with sabjis like cauliflower, cabbage, karela, bhindi etc, to move towards trying to eat healthier food! At this point in time I'm not sure of quantities or time required, and will be happy to fine tune this as we figure this out. I've put in a price per visit, assuming about 2-3 hours of work.
