Upon arrangements, 50% of deposit is required upon your approval of the service to book the event. Plus, the cost of groceries. The remaining balance is due the day the services are rendered and before the chef’s departure of venue. For continued cooking sessions, I will email you an invoice prior to our session with payment methods.
To assist in meeting your needs Savoir Personal Chef Services may ask you for a limited amount of personal information upon registration for any culinary service. This information is (but is not limited to) name, address, phone number, e-mail address, food preferences and dietary needs. Voluntary personal information is collected through submission forms, questionnaires, consultations (in-person, phone, and e-mail). You have no obligation to submit your personal information however, if you should become a potential client or customer, you may be required to provide some, or all, of the requested information. The information you provide to Savoir Personal Chef Services, is used to help better manage your account and meet your personal needs and preferences. The security of your information is Savoir’s top priority. All information is kept confidential and is never sold, published, or shared with any third party. However, when third-party merchants like PayPal are used to transfer funds, Savoir Personal Chef Services is not responsible for any maintenance or security issues that the client and those websites may encounter.
Cancellations must be received in writing via email, text, or fax no less than 6 days prior to the scheduled cooking session. Since regular clients are scheduled on a monthly/weekly basis, revised dates before the end of the quarter cannot be guaranteed. I will make every effort to accommodate such requests.
All deposits are non-refundable and by default are forfeited upon cancellation for any reason, including covid-19 virus concerns/guest(s) personal health status or concerns; but if an event with another client with a total event cost of equal or larger is successfully scheduled to replace your canceled event, your deposit can be retained and kept on file for your use on a future event. To ensure the maximum utilization of your deposit for a future event, we kindly request providing as much advance notice as possible for cancellations. Please note that deposits for cancellations received six days or less before the event will be automatically forfeited in full. With such short notice, it becomes extremely challenging to fill the vacant spot on our calendar, resulting in missed opportunities from other inquiries. In the event that a replacement booking is not secured, your deposit will be retained to compensate for the significant loss of income caused by an empty space on our calendar.
Any check or payment returned for insufficient funds will result in a $55 fee due with the agreed payment(s). The client will also be responsible for all charges and fees levied by the bank.
Because we need proper shopping and preparation time to develop the highest quality cuisine, menu choices must be agreed to no later than 3 days prior to scheduled cook date. Should the menu not be received in a timely manner, we will go ahead with the menu created for that week, keeping in mind your likes and dislikes.
