Meet Chicago’s Favorite Personal Chef

Chef Leslie Guria

Cooking for others has always been my passion. I love everything from choosing interesting recipes and shopping for just the right ingredients to seeing smiles on my guests’ faces when they finish a memorable meal I prepared just for them. So when it was time to move on from over a decade in marketing, I knew a career offering personal chef meal delivery service was the path for me. I’ve been doing just that since 2010!

Our Specialty—Chef Prepared Meal Delivery Services

My personal chef service specialty is delivering personalized, chef-prepared meals to hungry clients in Chicago’s northern suburbs. I make comfort food, healthy food, ethnic food, breakfast, lunch and dinner. I create and adapt recipes for busy families, professionals, seniors and picky eaters.

For those with dietary restrictions or allergies, I can create meals that are free of gluten, dairy or soy. I can accommodate all food lifestyles and health requirements including those for:

  • Vegetarians
  • Vegans
  • Diabetics
  • Cancer patients
  • Transplant patients
  • People on low-iodine diets

I can cook for dietician-specified diet plans, plans that adhere to American Heart Association guidelines as well as any popular diet, including:

  • Weight Watchers
  • Paleo
  • Keto

As a working mom schlepping multiple kids to and from sports and school activities, I understand the urge to pull over and grab Jimmy Johns. Making a healthy dinner adapted to everyone’s schedule and preferences after a full day of work is the last thing I have the energy for. If I only had a personal chef!

“With a 4 year old and a new baby, we decided to “temporarily” give a personal chef service a try. After our first round of meals we knew we had found an amazing service. They took the time to understand our individual tastes, dietary needs and goals. They then came up with a variety of fun meals they were easy to prepare and impossible not to enjoy. We even got our four-year-old to eat more vegetables.”
