Personal Chef Services

It Always Tastes Better When Someone Else Cooks

Personal Chef Meal Delivery is Our New Normal

Back to the basics! Chef Mario started his career in Raleigh working as a Personal Chef. He cooked for clients in their homes, leaving their refrigerators full of meals for a week of delicious, scratch-made eating. Now, we are focusing all of our work on Personal Chef again, only this time, we cook it in our commercial kitchen and deliver it to your doorsteps.

When the Pandemic started, we were very lucky to have this service already available, so it was a relatively easy ‘pivot’ for us. Now, as things start to return to normal, we are maintaining our focus on this service. We have a great collection of clients in our Personal Chef ‘Family’ and know that we bring a valuable service to you.  

We are working hard to keep our menu refreshed and bring you new options weekly to keep it exciting too! As always, we cook everything from scratch and will always work with a focus on delivering fresh, tasty meals that you can feel good feeding your family.  Our weekly menus are open from Friday afternoon through midnight on Sunday. Check them out! 

We love cooking for you! 

Will we begin catering again soon?

We know that Corporate Catering and Private Catering will return someday. But, it will look different for a long time. Gone are the days of ‘buffet’ style lunches in offices of 40, 50, 60 people. Gone are the Holiday Events for entire building tenants. We know that these events will be small, individually packaged, and look different from our perspective as well as the client perspective.  We will take any requests on a one-off basis and determine if we can make it work for the client as well as us. 

Personal Chef Delivery Service

Our Personal Chef service has become our mainstay now. Personal Chef is where Chef Mario got his start so many years ago and something he has done as part of his business ever since! So, it was an easy transition!

You can order from a weekly menu in quantities of your choosing. We offer a delivery service for orders over $79 and a discount if you choose to Pick up the meals from our kitchen!

Corporate Catering

At this time, all catering will be determined on a case-by-case basis. We are still short staffed, so our capacity for corporate and private catering is limited. Reach out to me at: [email protected] with your requests and I will get back to you! 

Wycliff Cafe

While the offices in our building are slowly starting to bring staff back, there are other businesses that will not be returning. We are holding off on re-opening the café until later this summer. We will be sure to let you know when we pick a re-open date! 

Private Catering

Private Catering will also be limited, but we will take inquiries on a one-off basis. As with Corporate Catering, new menus will be posted in the next couple of weeks. 

It has meant so much to our sanity and well being to have meals delivered with care, passion, and compassion. Chef Mario’s has really come through for us and we are delighted to continue services…

A Huge Thank You to All our Personal Chef Customers!

Hi!! I just wanted to take a moment and give you all a huge THANK YOU for being pare of out Personal Chef family. It really means the world to us that you order from us and recommend us to your friends and give our Gift Certificates as gifts.

2020 was definitely a crazy ride that had us on the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. We learned a lot about what we can do, what we want to do, and mostly, how much we can do for our customers. We are so grateful for your support and business!

Chef and I work tirelessly to be sure we are keeping our menu full of the stuff you love and bringing new options for you to try. No matter what, you can count on us to make it fresh and delicious.

Give Your Leftovers Life

I have always been a leftovers-crafter and one of my favorite ways to utilize any delicious tid-bits in my fridge has been to turn them into soup. I mean, really, if it tasted good the first time, it will certainly rock as a soup, trust me! Most of my soups are made...
