About What's For Dinner?...WHY COOK ON VACATION? Personal chef Bob Hessler has been preparing gourmet meals for Chatham renters and year-round residents since 2006. Rather than waste your vacation in the kitchen, allow Bob to prepare your meals for you. Planning a special event or celebration? He will do that too! A personal chef costs less than many take-out meals or going to a restaurant. The menu is tailored to your tastes, needs, and diet. The fee is $75.00 per hour, which includes shopping, preparation, and clean-up but does not include the cost of the food.
