Absolutely! As long as the price was right. When I return to work from maternity leave in a few months this is one thing I am worried about.
My husband and I will both be working long hours 4 days a week so we each have a day off with the baby. But in the days when we are both working, who does the cooking? We'll be eating at 9pm if we wait for one of us to cook.
We'll be getting a cleaner for a few hours once a week so why not a cook? I would paye for someone to come in for a few hours and make us dinner for that night plus a couple of dinners for the week.
I think it's a great idea that a lot of working parents would go for.
Meal plan/menus or cook? If I won the lottery then yes, a cook-housekeeper would be very high on my list of must-haves. But in reality no, there are billions of good meals you can chuck together in 30 mins and a lot of very good ready meals too. It wouldn’t have been high priority for me.
I have a couple of clients who are busy parents with children under 10. So I will shop, spend a day in their kitchen cooking meals which are freezeable. I do meal planners/menus so all they really need to do is put the food in the oven. The food is freshly prepared from scratch so if they are into healthy eating its done is such a way that it works for parents and family.
It all depends on the need/food requirements and area. I tend to pop in once a week so there's food for the week or two. Tend to do the shopping as well. Pop me a line if it's something of interest firstname.lastname@example.org
I had a quick Google instead. I'm hundreds of miles away from you but I would love a service like that but I'd need to earn a chunk more to justify it on a regular basis.
In Auckland, there was a similar service that was tailored for new parents to fill their freezer pre-post baby and kind relatives who wanted to help out but were too far away, could buy it for however many weeks, as a gift. I'd be all over that with bells on for myself, family and friends.
