My name is Lorna Williard and I have been happily preparing healthy, delicious meals for my clients since 2004. I started my business, Come Home To Dinner after my long career as an executive in the consumer luxury goods industry had just ended, and I finally had the time to indulge my lifelong passion for cooking. I was baking bread, smoking meat, making creative fresh vegetable dishes, making my own stocks, making everything from scratch. I always had a refrigerator stocked with fresh healthy food. It felt like such a luxury to open the refrigerator and have lots of flavorful options. It was so convenient, and eating well was so easy when it was all right there and ready to eat. I realized then that a lot of people would probably love living like that: to be able to open the refrigerator and have it full of healthy, delicious choices!

I have been in business for 16 years, which is very rare in the personal chef industry.  I truly believe that the reason I have stayed in business for so long is the personal touch that I provide. I enjoy taking the time to find out about my client’s tastes and making food that they will love. My clients are very busy who appreciate the luxury/value of having me shop, cook and clean up. I love to make their lives easier and their mealtimes stress-free and something they look forward to.

I want you to be able to open your refrigerator at the end of your day and be delighted about the food that I have made for you.

Eat the kinds of foods you love. The entire service is customized: I cook the food you like, in the quantities you want, just for you.

Call or email to set up your free consultation. We’ll meet to talk about your food likes and dislikes as well as your specific dietary needs and challenges. We will also plan a cooking schedule, to determine which day I will shop and come to your home to prepare your meals. After meeting, I’ll plan a menu just for you, which you’ll approve the week before your cook date.

On your cook date, I’ll shop for the freshest ingredients and bring them to your home, where I will prepare your meals. You come home to 3-5 different meals, all labeled, with heating instructions, that you can heat and eat.

I am happy to cook any type of cuisine. Special diets, diabetics, Celiac, gluten-free, vegetarian, Paleo, Keto, clean eating. 

I am so grateful to be able to share my love of good food with my clients.

Call me today, and find out how to get started with your own in-home chef!
