Personal Chef & Coaching Service
Choosing to eat a strict diet to improve your health is a difficult path to take. When you are unwell and in pain it is hard to take on a new path, however, a growing number of people are experiencing encouraging results.
This service is designed to help you during or after a recovery, until you are confident and more familiar with preparing and sourcing your food.
We will cook together, try recipes and talk about where to buy ingredients.
This is a one-on-one service, usually at your home kitchen (but not a must). The coaching sessions give you the opportunity to ask questions and try cooking together - a chance to ask anything, to really understand how to handle ingredients you've never tried before, as well as how to make these new dishes tasty and appealing to you, and your family.
Cost is $50 for an hour.
As your personal chef, I will provide a catering service tailored to your needs; it can include menu planning and preparing for weekly meals, or catering for a dinner party or a special occasion cooking in your home kitchen.
My cooking is simple, nutritious and fresh. Mostly plant based cuisine (the exception of sustainable cheeses or eggs is possible on request)
Whether it be lentils, sourdough bread, millet pilau or polenta. Add salads, sprouts miso and tahini to name a few ingredients I use often; unprocessed and real food.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you with your particular needs.
Hagar is great. I had a one on one session at my home.
She came well prepared. A good portion of her kitchen came with her 😉
I am currently working towards eating vegan to improve my health. It is is not easy for me as I am not creative in the kitchen.
I am one of those people who opens the cupboard and closes it quickly.
We had great conversation, nothing was difficult and she had some fantastic ideas, recipes and good places to go to get things and importantly gave me the motivation to get started.
We cooked a lovely lunch and chatted more about food ideas, health etc.
If you are in a pickle like I was, get in touch with Hagar. She is passionate about food and genuinely cares about people.
My mind is in a better place about food now.
I wish Hagar well in the future and am looking forward to attending her cooking classes from time to time.

We were looking to expand our current menu offerings with some tasty & nutritious vegetarian and vegan meal options. Hagar provided a comprehensive onsite consultation, followed by a cooking demonstration and tasting session.
She listened carefully to our needs and provided a selection of versatile ideas which have been popular with our clientele and we have now integrated into our current menu.
Hagar is passionate about the quality and health properties of the food we eat and was a pleasure to work with.
