If the guests order exotic food such as lobster, giant shrimp or the best quality imported US beef, the cost per one of those meals will go up $5 US per person. The $20 US would include the two meals the chef will prepare and ingredients for breakfast that the guests may want to put together themselves. The guests give the shopping money one day in advance to the chef. The chef gives all the bills and change to the guests once a day and the guests give the next days menu to the chef when they give her the shopping money.
