Emily’s Home Cooking

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer gift services?

Yes, I am happy to provide gift certificates for meal services!

Do you deliver pre-made meals?

No, I do not currently offer delivery services. However, if you would like to host a service for a friend in your home kitchen and then deliver them, rest assured that they will travel very well once frozen!

Do you bring your own tools?

Yes, I bring many of my own tools and some basic cookware. Extra pots and pans (and clean dish towels) in your kitchen are helpful but not vital.

What do I need to do to prepare for a service?

I appreciate it when clients clear their sink, stove, kitchen surfaces, moderate refrigerator and freezer space before I arrive. Also, please double-check that your stove, oven, fan and light are in good working order and that items have not been stored in the oven.

Can menu choices be adjusted to accommodate different diets?

Yes, I am always happy to offer menu advice and adjustments for diverse tastes and nutritional needs.

What does my service fee include?

Service fees include ingredients, labor, and taxes. For locations outside the greater Burlington area there may be associated driving fees which will be agreed upon in advance.

Do all the menu options freeze well? (Even the seafood?)

Yes, all my menu options are designed to freeze well, and delicate proteins (such as fish) may be par-cooked so to be perfectly cooked after thawing and reheating.

How will my meals be packaged?

Meals are packaged in one-serving or two-serving aluminum containers, and labeled with descriptions, simple heating instructions, and my contact information in case you have any questions while enjoying your meals.
