How do I know the food provided by the home-chef is safe?
Each of the home-chefs who are providing meals on Authenticook Delivery have had a tasting session conducted by us, wherein someone from our side has tasted their food (not necessarily the meal you have ordered). Also, kindly note that whatever the home-chef cooks for you would be had by their family as well and hence only the best will be served. With all the precautions that the home-chefs will be taking at their end, we still urge you to kindly heat up the food before consuming and also throw away all the packaging immediately on getting it home.
How do the delivery charges work?
We have a charge for all deliveries that we do. Given that each of our meals are cooked at multiple locations i.e. individual home kitchens of our home-chefs, we have a separate delivery charge of Rs. 100 for every meal that you call for from different home-chefs. There are no delivery charges for orders above Rs. 2,000.
