My Private Chef Debuts in Deep Ellum!
15 years in cold corporate America led Holly Muller to the warm temperatures of St. Thomas for a year sabbatical in 2004. With her left brain on bed rest, she embraced her affinity and raw talent for cooking and applied for a chef position on a private yacht. Months of satisfied appetites and of her own fulfillment, Holly realized that she had discovered more than an extended vacation.
As her corporate position eventually beckoned from Phoenix, the taste of the bubbling future resonated with Holly. She sustained her kinship with cooking in Arizona as a chef’s assistant at Sur La Table outside of her 9 to 5 role. Here she taught and demonstrated culinary fundamentals, baking basics and international food trends until a corporate relocation brought her to Dallas.
After arrival she was quickly hired for Sur La Table as a cooking assistant and promoted to cooking instructor. Holly further honed her skills as a culinary specialist and teacher at the Uptown location as well as in an emersion cooking school in Tuscany focused on Mediterranean cuisine.
It wasn’t until her father was diagnosed with heart disease however that Holly carved out her culinary alcove. Once her father’s health declined and her nephew began a battle with debilitating allergies she made her final exit from the demanding day job. With family wellbeing in mind, she carefully crafted a menu to deter sodium, fat, gluten, preservatives and other betting ingredients. Her dishes were an immediate hit with her family and soon her outlying network.
As the demand for her dishes mounted, Holly opened a Deep Ellum location of My Private Chef in November 2010. The kitchen and showroom is located within the old Rush Patisserie building, which also served as the backdrop for The Good Guys, a television show starring Tom Hanks’ son Collin. The Elm Street kitchen specializes in prepared foods that accommodate a food regimen low in sodium and sugar and high in protein and fiber. Clients regularly receive a variety of well balanced, portioned meals from a globally inspired menu which currently spotlights items such as spinach and asiago quiche with Truffle oil, mini turkey and sausage breakfast burgers with sweet potato hash, pulled pork tenderloin with maple sweet potatoes, Hawaiian chicken with spicy pineapple, tilapia cakes with mango relish and snap peas, Mexican turkey lasagna with spanishh brown rice and Tuscan chicken with great northern beans.
Holly soon realized that her initial intent to provide flavorful foods with health advantages to her family also aided the lifestyle of many health conscious foodies. Clients continually praise her variety of flavorful menus, celebrate a reduction in body fat, weight loss and deterred side effects to allergies.
Clients choose from a menu of breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks and can pay as low as $150 for a five day supply of breakfast, lunch and dinner. Prepared food is hand delivered or can be picked up and is ready to eat in minutes. Contact Chef Holly for a free consultation and get started today!
