Mud kitchen delivery


CAS is wonderful! Firstly she has done an incredible job with the cake topper I requested for my son’s birthday. It’s exactly what I had briefed in for the job. Secondly, there was an issue with the delivery and she quickly organised a courier to get a replacement to me in time for the event. I really appreciated this level of reliability and integrity. I would highly recommend CAS.

What do cooking services include?

You can hire a cook to provide food for a range of meals and occasions, from home cooking and meal prep to specialty cooking and even dinner party catering. You can arrange cooking services to happen in your own kitchen or your cook can bring the food ready-prepared. Your chef will take care of everything from buying ingredients to cleaning up. Here’s what you can expect depending on your cooking service:

Home cooking
Want fresh meals in your home? Your home chef can either offer regular home cooking services where they cook multiple nights per week, or provide a one-off meal if you just need occasional help. Your private chef will ask if you have any food preferences or intolerances, how many people they need to cook for, and what appliances and equipment they can use. They’ll usually plan the meals ahead of time, purchase the ingredients, and freshly cook the meals in your kitchen, and then clean up before they go.

Want to impress your best friend with an amazing cake for her birthday party? Or perhaps it’s your turn to bring some baking to work for morning tea? Hire a pastry chef or professional baker to create a cake, biscuits, muffins, or something else tasty. They’ll ask you how many people you’re baking for, any flavour preferences, and any special decorations you’d like. Your baker will bake at their place and deliver the finished product to your home or office once it’s ready.

Dinner party chef
If you’re planning a dinner party with friends, why not hire a dinner party chef to help take all the stress out of hosting? Your professional cook will contact you to confirm the number of guests, what courses/canapes you’d like, and whether the event is formal or informal. They’ll usually prepare most of the food where the event is being held (whether at your home or at a venue) and clean up the kitchen after they’re done.

Specialty cooking
Cooking paleo, vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free can be a challenge, whether it’s for yourself, a family member, or for an event you’re catering. Fortunately, many cooks are experienced with a range of different food requirements, including food intolerances, special diets, and allergies. When you hire a cook, they’ll choose recipes and ingredients that are suitable, confirming any dietary requirements before they get started. They’ll be careful to avoid cross-contamination if they’re preparing alternative meals for certain members of your family or party.

Meal preparation & planning
If you struggle to come up with meal ideas and always find yourself short of time throughout the week, why not hire a cook to prep your meals for the week? Your personal cook will confirm how many meals you’d like, the number of people, and if you have any preferences. They’ll choose meals that keep well and are easy to store, and taste great fresh or reheated. They’ll either prepare the food in your kitchen (cleaning up afterwards) or drop your freshly prepared meals off when they’re done, packaged and ready for the fridge or freezer.

We're a family of 3: couple with a 1 year old toddler. Looking for someone to spend approx 3-5 hours per week on a regular basis at our place to do some tasks. The main task is meal prep for 4 or so days. This includes making a few different types of cafe style salads, cutting some fruits, cooking one or two meals, and preparing/marinating some other things for the later days. We are open to your meal suggestions and like most cuisines. In addition to the above, it would be a bonus if you'd also help us with some light household duties (quick kitchen clean up, load/unload dishwasher, quick tidy up, folding laundry, making beds), but if you'd only do the meal prep part, we are happy to consider. Please note that we have regular cleaners who do deep cleaning. We could just use any additional help to keep the house in order :) - Due date: Flexible
