The Inside Scoop
My name is Mary Catherine Morton. My friends call me MC. I was born and raised in Vero Beach, and am a 2002 graduate of St. Edwards School. In 2007, I graduated from Johnson & Wales University of Charlotte, NC with a culinary degree. I have worked in many different types of culinary facilities, such as Old Edwards Inn (Highlands, NC), various upscale restaurants, as well as a very well-known catering company in Charlotte.
My mother Sally Morton, was a fantastic chef. I watched her carefully in the kitchen when she was either prepping dinner for us on a regular school night or if she was prepping for a big cocktail party for her friends. She never told me this, but I knew for a fact, just by watching her, that when you put your heart and soul into cooking and event planning (down to which toothpick to use for the olive bowl) that everything comes together like a beautiful jigsaw puzzle. She is the reason why I started this company in May 2014, she was OUR Kitchen Belle.
I understand there’s a need for a personal chef for people that simply don’t have the time to prepare healthy meals for their family and also for when you are entertaining. Meeting my client’s culinary needs is very important to me. Learning your personal tastes, your likes and dislikes and any special dietary needs is the best part of my job. In just one day, I can come into your home and prepare a week’s worth of delicious healthy meals and I will even do the dishes! After our initial consultation and menu planning, I do the grocery shopping, all the prep and cooking in your own home and will clean up. By the time you will get home from work, your meals will be ready and I will leave your kitchen cleaner than you left it.
Throwing a party? Call me! I also prepare food for parties up to 150 guests and dinner parties up to 10 guests. I have a great staff of servers, bartenders and valet, if needed.
Gift certificates are also available. Give the gift of a delicious home cooked meal! It’s a great gift for new homeowners, expecting parents, birthdays and anniversaries.
