from Our Kitchen
There’s something about a home-cooked meal. Sharing great-tasting food while gathering around the table is truly one of life’s simplest pleasures.
But with today’s hectic schedules – from working late to soccer practices and everything in between – enjoying a real, made-from scratch meal together isn’t as easy as it used to be.
For over 14 years, California Chef has brought authentic home-cooked meals right to you. Because you deserve more than a meal delivery service, and real home cooking shouldn’t be a do-it-yourself kit from a box. Our mission is to save you time and serve up delicious, comforting favorites delivered ready to eat every day of the week.
Our head chef loves a challenge, and he found a way to recreate those classic meals you love, while keeping them portion-controlled, and fresh and balanced.
Everything is made with fresh ingredients that are seasonal and locally-sourced - including our meats, fish, and poultry. You won’t catch any frozen, processed, or pre-made stuff in our farm-to-table meals.
All of our meals are fully cooked – the only thing you need to do is heat them up. That means in addition to home cooking you can feel good about, you get the gift of time – no slaving over the kitchen stove, no prep work, and most importantly, no stress about what to eat.
Whether you want perfectly portioned, home cooked meals for yourself, or if you want your whole family to enjoy homestyle dishes without having to spend hours in the kitchen, we give you the power to be a mealtime hero.
Our Story is a SoCal Story
Our Co-founder Tom Aaron wanted to bring a radical idea to the masses: delicious, flavorful meals that could power your body cleanly without having to think about it. He teamed up with Executive Chef Marieno Iorieo and soon, they were making flavorful, nutritious meals that were begging to be shared.
We get the SoCal lifestyle. You’re up early, you stay out late, and you work hard. You want healthy, restaurant-quality meals that give you the energy you need. And you want your meals delivered fresh, without any of the stress of cooking or planning.
