I will make you a fresh, home made meal custom made for your tastes. I'm skilled in many areas and styles of cooking, so if you're craving something in particular, it's more than likely I can make it. Some of my favorite cuisines to cook are Central European, Japanese, Jewish Foods, Italian, and American. I also love to make desserts as well so I can satisfy your sweet tooth. I love cooking from scratch, so if you're looking for from the ground-up cooking, I can provide.
I can cook for any occasion, whether or not it's cooking ahead for the upcoming week, packing a picnic, making school lunches for the kids, a romantic date night, or even catering for parties! For meal planning, I can make you pre-made dinners to freeze and re-heat so you have a hot, home made meal every night no matter how busy you may be. I'm happy to make multiple courses with you and build a menu according to flavor profiles you enjoy, or I can introduce you to some completely new dishes to expand your pallet. For parties, I do have a 3 course limit for more than 8 guests. I can also serve up to 20 people.
I do ask that grocery shopping is done beforehand. I am happy to provide shopping lists for my meals, but I want to make sure my time with you is spent cooking rather than grocery shopping.
If you have food allergies or special dietary needs, my cooking is flexible and I'm experienced making vegetarian, gluten-free, paleo, ketogenic, dishes. However, I am not a miracle worker so please don't ask me to make a souffle if you have an egg allergy.
Training & Qualifications
I have been cooking as a hobby for over a decade and professionally for the past two years as a personal cook for families all over Seattle. I have also done catering for parties as large as 25 guests with 4 courses, and 18 guests with 8 courses. I am self taught, but that has afforded me an incredible flexibility in my cooking.
Availability & Preferences
I'm usually free on weekdays. Monday evenings in particular I'm free, though other evenings will need to be confirmed beforehand.

About Jack Lazette
I like to think I'm a Jack of all trades. I've always had a wide variety of skills and knowledge and I'm excited to share! I have a degree in Creative Literature and I'd be happy to put that to use ed...iting and consulting. I've been a personal assistant and personal cook for three years so I can also help in matters of the home including meal prep, house keeping, errand running, dog walking/pet sitting, house sitting, and schedule coordination. In the past I've organized and cooked for 9 course dinners for 18 people so I'm happy to lend a hand for large parties too. I also love to bake everything from breads to pastries. For the past 6 years I've studied gardening with a focus in companion planing and permaculture so I can help you plan a garden (produce or otherwise) that is low-maintenance and plentiful. show moreOpen to other proposals
