I'm looking for a private chef ... not a high-priced celebrity chef, but rather someone who can prepare & deliver simple, quality, reasonably priced meals for people too busy to cook. Can edhat readers recommend one?

By "reasonable", do you mean like someone who charges say $15/hr., or a higher amount per hour....say $25/hr.? For someone charging $15, a single meal would cost around $50/delivered...at $25, you're looking a around $75. For some people, neither of those amounts is unreasonable, but for me....well, I guess I'm cheap, and would just pay a cabbie/uber to pick up and deliver a meal I called in at any one of the numerous local restaurants.

Have you checked out BlueApron or HelloFresh? Saves you having to go shopping but you'd still have to cook and to me the cooking is the fun part while the prep is the hard, boring part and that's already done for you.

Try asking at http://www.santabarbara.com/dining/news/ ************************************************************************************************************** make a disclaimer that you don't know where to ask/you got dissed here. They'll love you for that, for good reason. I'm not on FB; isn't there a place there to ask anything? I'd google and go down the list calling each and looking for compatibility.

Jimjah, didn't Clements cook at Emilio's? Yummy. OP, I understand the draw; If I was dieting or working a lot, I'd like to fridge/freeze meals, and/or have the weekly delivery.

Clements, per the website, is not appropriate for private chef. Seems TO ME that post was a sales push.

Food from the Heart delivers wonderful meals, if you qualify, and for a reasonable donation I believe.
