FAMILY DINNERS FILLED WITH JOY, NOT STRESS

When you use Dinner Elf, you’re taking a simple but intentional step to nourish your family. Our cooks transform your kitchen into a magical in-home meal experience, whipping up your favorite dishes plus kid-friendly backup options for busy evenings. Choose from our big menu of nutrient-rich, delicious meals personalized to your family’s needs.

WE GET IT - A PERSONAL CHEF SOUNDS TOO LAVISH.

The new thing often sounds fancy at first glance. Our grandmothers probably thought dishwashers were lavish. Our mothers probably fought the microwave. Our in-home cooking services give you the benefits of an old fashioned home-cooked meal with modern day convenience. You'll get more time for what matters most and support a local chef with meaningful work. Not convinced? Read hundreds of 5-star reviews from busy families.

"This service has transformed my daily life and family. It was exactly what I didn't know I needed. I have been able to dial in on the sides and meals that will appeal to everyone. So happy to have my family dinner back and be able to enjoy it myself."
- KASEY

"Do yourself a favor and book today. Honestly, you just won't regret it. The food is outstanding, the service outstanding, it is so easy, it's not expensive... I can't believe anyone would do a meal kit service and not try these guys."
- COURTNEY

OUR LARGE MENU IS GREAT FOR MOST TASTES AND DIETS
