" Top-notch nursing service by Immanuel homecare founded by his mother . Satisfactory customer service. I used their services because of my preterm baby requirement which happened last December. I had to opt for this agency since the feed- back was good from my circle . The agency s not corporate and you can always talk to Mr. Immanuel or watsapp within 24 hrs which i find is not possible corporate like Apollo or Portea Their nursing and caretaker services are well-manned trained and qualified people. They sent a vaccinated caretaker to protect the patient and family. There is a founder fee or deposit I got proper invoices and receipts within a day The founder should be proud "

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How should I choose the best cook for home?

Tasting session is the best way to be sure of a cook’s service. The description of the cook’s past experience as well as training are all very important factors but don't forget to look at the reviews given to the cooks by their previous customers. You can inquire in the cook agency and check all the reviews other customers have given to the chef. You can use this information to judge for yourself and then select a suitable chef for you.

2. Is it expensive to hire a chef at home?

Hiring a home cook in Chennai is similar to eating out at a restaurant except there is no waiting or paying any extra charges for the beverages. You get to customize your food menu, keep it healthy and fresh and you know who prepared your meal with what type of ingredients!

3. Can I talk to the chef prior to hiring the services?

Of course, you can talk to the chefs prior to hiring them. If you have any queries about the dishes, the preparation time, their arrival time, necessary utensils, etc., you can clear everything straight away.

4. How much is the salary of a cook in Chennai?

The salary of the cook will vary greatly depending on a lot of factors. If the cook is starting off as a cook, that is he or she does not have much expertise; then the salary might be less. For more experienced cooks the salary would be commensurate. If you want a cook to be an expert in one particular cuisine, then he or she might charge you more. Some cooks who regularly cook for four people, if they have to prepare for 10 or 20 guests will also ask you for extra money for all the extra cooking. If you entertain frequently, let the cook know so that he or she can offer a better competitive rate.

5. How much do home chefs approximately charge?

Hiring a home cook is a much healthy and economical option instead of eating out in restaurants. Approximately, a 3x3 course cooking service would cost Rs.3500 and above depending on the client’s requirement. Hiring a home chef is feasible as you get timely healthy cooked meals at home.

6. Can I hire a cook temporarily?

Yes, you can hire a cook for a short period as well. If you have a temporary need to cook a meal for many people, then you can get a temporary cook. It is possible to have a cook who will come for a few days or short duration and do all you’re cooking. But if you want a cook for a short duration then you must book much I advance to ensure the availability of the cook.

7. How long does it take for a professional cook to prepare a regular 3 meal at home?

This depends on your menu and the type of meal service you choose. A 3×4 meal service can take an average of around 4 hours, whereas a 5×4 meal may take up to 8 hours. If you opt for a one time meal, it should take approximately 2 hours to prepare, cook and clean the kitchen space.

8. Can I hire a chef for a one time occasion?

Yes, certainly. One can opt to hire a chef at home for special dinner parties and celebrations but the cost for the service can vary based on the number of people, menu entails and any other special requirements. This is a great option when you have too many guests to host and socialize with.

9. Will the chef help with other household chores?

No, the chef is only for cooking. But they might help you with cleaning the dishes in case your regular maid is absent. Some cooks even take it upon themselves to keep the kitchen clean, including the floor and the countertop space. But if not specified, most cooks will not indulge in Household activities other than cooking. Ask the cook if you have any specific requirement before you hire them

10. Can the cook cater to specific culinary preference?

Yes if you choose a cook who is an expert at a particular type of cuisine, then you can be certain that the chef will cater to your taste buds. Before hiring a prospective candidate, ask if he or she is comfortable with that style of cooking. You should also ask about the special dishes that the chef is known for within that particular type of cuisine.

11. Will the cook also do the shopping?

Yes, many cooks prefer to do the shopping, but others may not do that. If you need the cook to do the cooking for you regularly, do let the cook know that before hiring
