Personal chef concocts fresh menus, services


The owner of What’s Cooking? Personal Chef Service has whipped up a few changes to the business.

An updated website has been launched, and a new cooking class schedule with expanded options has been posted, said What’s Cooking? owner and chef Colleen Farnham.

Farnham offers a plethora of services, including cooking classes, catering and grocery services.

New offerings include a full seasonal menu for dinner parties, and an appetizers-only menu for informal occasions.

“We’ll change our menus seasonally to take advantage of fresh foods, especially those that are produced locally,” Farnham said in the announcement. She said custom menus to fit special tastes and needs are also on the table.

The website — — may look familiar for those who’ve visited, but has been reconfigured for easier navigation and to showcase the new services.

Farnham said she’s also experimenting with a subscription service that allows customers to order soup for a month at a discount off the regular prices. The menu includes a soup of the month, as well as weekly selections.

Fresh weekly menus have been offered since the business started in 2010. Now Farnham is adding freezer-friendly meals to the mix.

In addition to those services, Farnham offers pre-stocked grocery services for vacation rentals; prepared meals or picnic lunches; and dinner parties.

Her 2013 cooking class schedule has also been posted online. Classes take place monthly and run the gamut from stews to fish.

As a single man, whose blood work is less than optimum, I've purchased, Tuesday, an entree, sat with Chef Colleen and talked about food. (talked about food like I've not done for a decade) She has a Grocery List that I looked over as we talked and realized would take me down grocery aisles I've seldom visited. Used it, what fun!

The Scotch Broth is the beginning of, I hope, of a long business/client relationship. I'm no longer eating frozen entrees, processed foods. I've made new food discoveries, and will enjoy prepared meals I've never experienced before.

Dr. Bob Sapolsky wrote that a trait of aging well is: novelty. I can't think of a better practice than new foods.

I've recently given serious thought to aging and health. It appears, having shopped yesterday, I'll spend less than before; after four days, I've not eaten so well in decades.
