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 personalized 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

“We love Secret Ingredient! Food shopping for dinners and figuring out meal preparation is no longer on our to do list. Possible options are sent in advance and they will also make anything you can dream up when you create your menu. Secret Ingredients shops for you, comes to your kitchen, prepares the food, labels and freezes, and then cleans up as if the team was never there. Our family now has delicious home cooked healthy meals with the quality ingredients we approve and the process couldn’t be easier.”
