Ideally they can reheat the food easily and it will have a few servings for them and maybe a couple of others if they have guests.

Once in a while, she will also eat small amounts of bison if she needs more protein. She will pretty much eat any recipe from http://kimberlysnyder.com/ We need someone who is creative with plant based cuisine. She also tends to eat gluten free but not all the time.

The husband is not vegetarian at all. He prefers chicken in a variety of ways with different sauces, mashed potatoes or rice. He loves duck and duck bacon, will eat turkey, beef or bison. He does not eat pork, fish, vegetables or salads, but he will drink the green smoothies his wife drinks and it’s the only way he gets his vegetables & fruits in his diet. He also tends to eat gluten free but not all the time.

Every drop off should include 6 pints of green smoothies in separate plastic bottle containers as well as 4-6 eight ounce containers of a different bone broth for each drop off).

The chef would be provided with a credit card to purchase food & containers and is expected to give receipts weekly. They will also be paid on a bi-weekly basis. They will also be needed once in a while to cook for a dinner party and may be asked to go to their farm in Ojai to cook for a special occasion.
