100+ Conscious eaters trust Chef Joy's personal chefs for their meal prep
"I am very particular about my and my family's health. I need to know what goes in my food, especially the oil and meat. With Chef Joy, I have full control over cooking and I get the best food, better than I could imagine. Love food recommendations from different chefs. It has exposed me to so many cuisines and dishes that I didn’t even knew of."
"A while ago my friends and I got together at one of our places to catch up over dinner and poker. Experiencing Chef Joy for the first time, it offered an intimate home cooking experience, with quality dishes well prepared and displayed. Without any of the hassle of prepping food ourselves, we can focus on enjoying the moment with great friends. It’s a game changing experience. I encourage everyone to try out and see for yourself."
"Very intuitive and affordable app. I ordered an Italian chef for my wife’s birthday and it took only 2 mins to book. The experience was cozy, friendly and yet luxurious. My friends loved the experience and booked a chef for another event."
"I have used Chefs on Chef Joy and they added many new affordable chefs recently. In case anyone wants to try. I generally hire chef to cook at my place with our groceries - enough fresh food for 3-4 days for our family."
"We generally used Shef in the past for our close group events - but their food started to taste stale. This time we tried an authentic chef from Chef Joy who made Indo-Chinese dishes including delicious momos and hakka noodles. The momos were a hit with the kids and the dishes were visually stunning. The cost was less than $15 per serving including groceries and cooking time - I highly recommend Chef joy to anyone looking to experience authentic food at pretty affordable prices."
