    Cancellation Policy

    Dates for catering are only reserved upon receipt of a deposit. Once reserved, that date will be held exclusively for you, and I will turn down all other requests for that date. Cancellations of reservations have a huge impact on my business.

    Catering deposits are not refundable, regardless of whether you postpone, reschedule, or cancel scheduled services, and regardless of whether I book another client for that date.

    If we are negotiating a date, and another person inquires about the same date, I will give you a period of 8 hours to either make a deposit or rescind and choose another date. After 8 hours, the date will be assigned to the second client.

    Personal Chef & Cooking Lessons
    While I do try to be flexible and accommodating, I am the only person who does Personal Chef work for my company. When I reserve a date for you, I will turn down work for other clients on that date. I have only 4 Personal Chef appointments available in a week (weekends are reserved for catering clients), so cancellations mean I can lose as much as 25% of my income for the week.

  • Once you have reserved date with Chef JoAnna, you are contractually bound to that date.I will turn down other work requests and hold that date exclusively for you. Please give as much notice as possible if you are unable to keep your reservation.

  • If you cancel a booked reservation with less than one week's notice, a rescheduling fee shall apply.
    • 7 or more days notice: $25 rescheduling fee.
    • 3 or more days notice: $50 rescheduling fee.
    • 2 days (48 hours) or less notice: $75 rescheduling fee.
    • Less than 48 hours notice: $250 rescheduling fee 3.

      These fees will be collected when you reschedule your reservation, regardless of whether another client has been booked for the timeslot you originally booked.
A deposit equal to 50% of your session fee will be required to secure future bookings.

For the purpose of calculating time, a "day" calculated as 24hrs from the time I'm to arrive at the specified location.


Collection of these fees will be pursued regardless of whether you postpone, reschedule, or cancel scheduled services, and regardless of whether I book another client for that timeslot. Please be considerate and allow as much notice as possible. I understand that emergencies happen, and the fee may be waived or reduced at my discretion... but only once. I enjoy what I do, but cooking isn't a hobby for me, it is how I make my living. Thank you for understanding.
