Personal Chef Services

It Always Tastes Better When Someone Else Cooks

Here we are 2021…

Last March we watched our Catering business completely implode. We had to cancel every Corporate and Private Catering event we had on the books because of the Coronavirus. We felt lucky, though, because we knew we could pivot quickly and change our focus to Chef Mario’s roots as a Personal Chef.

We also knew that this type of service would be valuable to so many at a time when getting basic food supplies was no longer an easy feat and trips to the grocery store had become almost a scary thing. 

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. 

Our focus for 2021

We will continue our focus on Personal Chef Delivery Services for the immediate future. We believe that these services are valuable now and will still be valuable even after we return to a little more ‘normalcy’.  We are branching out our menu and continue to offer new and exciting dishes every week. 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! 

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

Our Corporate Catering will start back up again at some point. Please feel free to reach out if you are looking for Corporate Catering as we will take all requests on a one-off basis. 

Options are limited to Individually packaged meals at this time. Pricing has changed with these new guidelines and with the increase in food prices we are experiencing and with the increased packaging required for the individually portioned meals.

Wycliff Cafe

We have determined that our Cafe will remain closed for the time being. We will reevaluate as circumstances change. We are terribly sorry for any inconvenience this causes our customers, but the level of business is not enough to support remaining open. Thank you for understanding. 

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. All of this has literally been the difference between us having to close our doors for good and us being able to stay open and actually provide jobs for a few people too! 

2020 was definitely a crazy ride that had us on the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. We learned alot 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.

We really don’t know how 2021 is going to shape up. But, rest assured, we will keep our ‘pivot’ button on to be able to go with the flow! We are so glad you have found us and are giving us a try or that you keep letting us feed your family! Please remember that I am just an e-mail away if you have any questions!!

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...
