Questions about gift cards

Culinista gift cards can be used in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles. If you need a chef in upstate New York, Westchester County, Fairfield County, CT, the D.C. metro area, the Hamptons, or a different location, email q@theculinistas.com and we'll try our best to source a chef for you.

Our digital Culinista Kitchen® gift cards can be purchased in any amount. This can go toward a client who currently uses the service, or a new client who will be enjoying a Culinista chef for the first time.

The beauty of a gift card is that it can be used however your recipient wishes. If that’s a busy household who could use a week off of cooking, they’ll love our Weekly Meal Service. If that’s a new mom, our Postnatal menus are customized to maternal needs such as lactation support.

No. Our Culinista chefs shop locally, sourcing fresh, seasonal ingredients, and cook each week’s dishes in your own home. No delivery coordinating. No wasteful drop off packaging. No mystery off site kitchen.

Our Culinista chefs have diverse backgrounds, from nutrition certifications to regional specialty experience. They have cooked in some of the world’s best restaurants and have years of private chef experience. Their degrees range from the Culinary Institute of America to Cornell‘s elite hospitality program.
