Hi – I’m Michael Guessefeld and I own/operate Chef Michael’s Home Delivery.

I deliver high quality food products to the home. No contracts, no commitments- you get what you want,  when you want. I’m always searching for new products as well as expanding my own specialty preparations. My products are flash frozen and super convenient. My steaks, seafood and poultry are cut to my specifications by top suppliers and trimmed of unwanted fat, gristle, skin, bone and individually cryovaced and able to store in your freezer for at least a year without a measured depreciation of quality.You simply thaw and cook.

This is not a gourmet food service per se. I have a full spectrum of products that appeal to everyone from kids to gourmets and those in between. From Chicken Fingers to Filet Mignon to my own specialty preparations.

I’m very proud of my business and I would suggest that my products have a qualitative edge that separate them from like products found in the mainstream marketplace. For instance my Mac & Cheese has Fontina, Pecorino Romano, and Parmigiano Reggiano cheeses included in its high end ingredient roster. I have Poussin (young all natural chicken) from a world class Quail farm in New Jersey. I have French delicacies like Calves Brains and Veal Sweetbreads. My Escargot in Pastry are superb nuggets taking a classic gourmet food product to a new level. My Brie in Pastry with a Rosemary infused Fig/Walnut Jam has a clever culinary edge. My Gratin Dauphinois (scalloped potatoes) and the Galette de Pomme de Terre (Potato Tart) are splendid renditions of the French classics.

Filet Mignon resting on an island of my Mac+Cheese, Roasted Garlic Cloves, Shallots and sauce Marchand de Vin (red wine sauce). Grand Marnier Soufflé for dessert.
