Personal Chef Services
Let me give you back your time and energy by doing all the shopping and cooking for the week. Come home from work and simply reheat your customized, nutritious, and healthful meal, sit down with your family, and enjoy!
How it works
I am happy to cook for clients on a twice a week, weekly, bi-weekly, or an occasional basis. After a complimentary consultation, I send you a proposed menu, usually with some options to choose from, a few days before your cook day. I expect to shop for all the ingredients, but am happy to use what you have already in your pantry or fridge. I tend to shop both at the farmers’ markets and Berkeley Bowl in order to procure the best quality, local, organic ingredients. With my bike bags loaded with groceries, I ride to your house and cook the planned menu in your kitchen. You will come home to a refrigerator full of containers of nutritious and delicious meals, a clean kitchen, and the lingering smells of a home cooked meal.
Soups & Stews ready for the fridge or freezer:
Beef & Black Bean Chili, Spinach & Chard, Cauliflower Cheese

"Rebecca is a truly gifted chef AND one of the best people you could welcome into your home. Rebecca is a master at taking a recipe or an idea and bringing it to life; she is endlessly cheerful about incorporating dietary preferences and restrictions and turning out one delicious meal after another. She does a wonderful job coming up with a plan for each week which creatively balances food groups as well as flavors and textures. Eating Rebecca's food is like receiving a big, enveloping hug from a dear friend! I feel deeply supported and profoundly nourished after eating a "Rebecca Meal." The only thing better than Rebecca's AMAZING cooking is Rebecca herself: she brings consistently happy energy into my home, is profoundly trustworthy, leaves everything neat and tidy, and is just a pleasure to have around. I cannot say enough good things about Rebecca Sibrack and the food she makes!"

"Our family started having Rebecca cook for us when we were approaching the birth of our second child; having that extra help in our lives was enormous. If you’re also a busy person looking to have a wonderful person fill your fridge with delicious, healthy, homemade food, look no further. Rebecca hand-picks the produce at local farmers' markets, and gets organic whenever available. She has been very responsive to our food preferences and I’ve really appreciated the variety of cuisines she’s able to cook with high-end restaurant level technique. I also appreciate that Rebecca gives us a few choices for what she’ll cook that week, and is always open to requests. The food is tasty, healthy, and homemade; what more could you want? But there is more! Not only is Rebecca an excellent chef who is responsive to our family’s palate, she is such a pleasure to have in the house. It’s doubly a joy to have someone stop by on a weekly basis whose presence makes the house a warmer and more pleasant place to be."
