The Food Fairy Meal Prep Services

North Carolina’s favorite personal chef

Terri McClernon – The Food FairyI just love to cook! I feel positively gleeful knowing how our  services  can change lives if only by bringing families together at the dinner table. We offer easy and often healthy meals and in these challenging and hectic times, your pleasure is indeed our pleasure!

Maybe your family is so busy that you don’t stop for home-cooked meals. It could be you just don’t enjoy cooking or don’t cook as much as you used to but you still want to eat well.  Perhaps someone in your family has food allergies or you have other special dietary requirements such as gluten-free, heart healthy, diabetic, vegetarian, vegan, renal, weight loss or other challenging dietary protocols. Do you prefer to shop at your neighborhood grocer or perhaps support local farmers or happy pastured livestock? Perhaps you are a fan of organic/ sustainable farms, or your local co-op? No problem! We shop where you wish for us to shop!

We do understand your dinnertime dilemma! The Food Fairy is here for you: to nourish – and nurture – by preparing personalized and wholesome meals right in your own home! We specialize in YOU and enjoy creating meals that satisfy your health and palate needs, whatever they may be!

We can help you in other ways, too. We also prepare food for  parties, weddings, retreats or business functions, teach cooking classes, live or on zoom, offer menu and recipe consulting and corporate wellness programs. We will even re-organize your kitchen for you if that will simplify your life.

So, if you are in Chapel Hill or Carrboro; Raleigh or Durham; Pittsboro or Sanford; Cary or Apex; Charlotte or even as far away as Rougemont or Burlington, give The Food Fairy® a call.

That’s what “The Food Fairy®” is all about – making your wishes come true!
