Welcome to M Delish Boutique 

I’m Chef Melissa Machowski, and this is my food blog for real home cooks from beginner to advanced and adventurous. Find ideas for easy weeknight dinners, new flavors, spice advice and lots and lots of recipes for all occasions.

About me:

I’m a private chef, culinary educator, nutritionist (with specialties in weight loss, vegan and vegetarian diets), and adventurous home cook. I’ve written two cookbooks, and I’ve competed in cooking competitions throughout the years (and starting from a young age). My most recent triumph was taking home the first place trophy for a Chili Cook-off in Austin, Texas.

If you are interested in my nutritionist coaching and meal plans, check out my introductory offer.
