It is suggested for you to work out a menu plan with our cook the day after you arrive and she will go to the local market and stock up on your groceries for the week. This is a very simple procedure as she has had much experience in catering to visitors and has many recommendations to make your selection easy. She will know what you would need for the week and brings back receipts to account for all your purchases. Kitchen supplies are pre-purchased to provide meals and drinks for the first 2 days. Please meet with her on your second day to complete the week’s shopping. At the end of the week she presents all receipts to reconcile accounts for purchases.
