Laurent Vals Culinary

 New Service Offered!

The Woodlands, Houston, TX


"Chefs For Seniors is a first-of-its-kind service that prepares customized, nutritious meals for the week in our clients' homes. Our team of professional chefs shop, cook, and clean up all in ~2.5 hours, while providing a unique in-home experience for seniors."

I highly recommend chef Laurent Vals as your personal chef: He shops for fresh food at good prices: if for instance the salmon is not up to his standard he will not purchase it and will substitute other seafood choice.
He prepares a variety of entrees, vegetables and a starch with your personal dietary needs in mind.
He is punctual, organized and focused.
His food is prepared with a variety of flavors that satisfy our taste.
I am so thankful for his services at reasonable price for high quality food.
— Kathryn S.

 Our New Concept - Plant Based Protein Diet for Seniors

Chef for Seniors / the Woodlands TX is launching a new concept of protein plant base diet (PPBD) for our seniors.
The over-consumption of animal proteins, processed meats, dairy products and fast food has contributed largely to an increase of heart disease, diabetes, cancers and obesity for the past few years.
This not a vegan diet as meat and fish will be included in appropriate and reduced proportions but as we know essential proteins, vitamins and minerals are already found in vegetables and fruits.
This is not a “magic” diet that is going to make you lose 20 lbs in 3 days or make you feel like you are 20 years old again overnight.
It is meant to re-balance what we eat by eliminating some of the carcinogens, lower cholesterol and diabetes and in some case lowering your meds intake.
As a professional chef I will make the meals delicious, healthy and nutritious as well.
