Who we are
At Contented Chef, everything we do is driven by the belief that every person deserves to enjoy great tasting and nutritious food no matter what their stage in life. We’re passionate about food! We talk about it all day, every day. And it is this love of food and fresh, quality ingredients – local where possible – that unites us in our mission to provide delicious, home-style, nutritionally balanced cooking to all our customers.
Our Head Chef, supported by an in-house dietician, leads a team of passionate foodies. We are a diverse group with experience in five star restaurants, local clubs, hotels, resorts, aged care facilities and event catering. We come from a range of cultural backgrounds and our influences are seen in the variety of the foods on our menu.
Customers at home
It gives us so much pleasure to supply the kind of meals that people would want to cook at home for themselves. The timeless classics like roast chicken, to more adventurous tastes such as vegetable cashew korma curry. So whether you’re in the mood for something as simple as bangers and mash, or your taste buds crave a more exotic fix like beef bourguignon, we’ve got you covered.

The Contented Chef provides an extensive range of cooked and ready-to-heat meats and components for making meals (e.g. sauces, vegetable ingredients, mashed potato) to a whole range of different food service businesses – from convenience stores to aged care homes, retirement living villages, to cafes and restaurants. Our superb quality, fully prepared food is delivered to your door, helping to make your kitchen function much more smoothly and efficiently.
