Secret Ingredient


Personal chef Chris Welsh is the Executive Chef and Owner of Secret Ingredient and is the talented cook behind your highly nutritious and customized meals. She believes that the secret to living a healthy and balanced life starts with wholesome food.

Chef Chris Welsh developed her passion for food at a young age when she cooked with her Greek mother and grandmother, and learned how to make old world and gourmet meals.

She turned her love of food into a full-time business and opened Secret Ingredient in 2001. For over 15 years, she has helped dozens of busy families, professionals, those with dietary needs, and people recovering from illness, save time and eat healthier.

When she’s not experimenting with new flavors and ingredients or hosting dinner parties, Chef Chris is attending yoga classes and going on retreats to keep her life as balanced and healthy as the meals she prepares for her clients.

We believe that food should be nourishing, calming and healing….a gift for the soul.  Let us take you on that journey.

Chris Welsh is a member of the USPCA

“For ten years we have had the pleasure of both consuming, and enjoying every meal Chris has made for our family. Chris cook’s meals that not only taste fresh the day you take them out of your oven, but also mimics meals from a nice restaurant. Our family hopes we can go another 10 years with her services.”
