Hi
We are a big group of 26 ppl (10 adults, 16 kids) are looking for private cook to help us with casual meal preparation.
We don’t need gourmet menu or white gloves service.
Regular pasta, bbq chicken, veggie salads, eggs for breakfast- what we will need.
Can someone recommend a cook who can do this?
Thank you!

Where will you be and how long do you need this person? Would it be for three meals each day? I have a friend who might be interested.

Chef Brooks would be great. I used him to cater my dad's 90th birthday a few years ago, and last week he dropped off some casual food for our first night on the island. We also used Fabulous Feasts for some more formal dinners, but sounds like Chef B is what you're looking for. Get the fried chicken - it's AMAZING.

I know the fellow from Gutside (can't remember his name now! duh), does that kind of thing. Some friends had him cook for them. Part of the group loved it and part of them thought it was kind of so-so. It was not gourmet at all, ribs and chicken kind of stuff..

We will be staying at Baie Rouge beach villa for Dec 26-Jan 1.
Most likely we will need breakfast and dinner.
Again, Nothing fancy - eggs/ pancakes/ French toasts for morning,
Rise, salad, bbq - for evening.
I’d appreciate if you can ask your friend. Thanks

We rented a Villa two years ago and tried to find a cook without much as the few we found were very expensive out of our budget. As I remember $150 a evening and $250 for holidays. I guess it depends on the experience of cook. And number of people and menu. We ended up going to a restaurant most of the time which was actually a lot of fun for the group and less complicated.
