Kristen Calandrelli — 5 star Debbie and her assistant did a fantastic job as a personal chef for my best friend’s bachelorette party on March 7. Everybody was raving for the entire weekend about the lamb chops she made, which were cooked perfectly. And her chocolate raspberry dessert was out of this world. Debbie was timely and professional as well as warm and friendly, making working with her both to plan the event and during the dinner a joy. She was also extremely willing to accommodate varying food restrictions (vegetarian, food allergies) among our 10-person group. Debbie definitely goes above and beyond and I would highly recommend her for your event.

Appetizers, Salads, Vegetables, Pastas, Rices, Meat, Fish and Desserts are available.

5 Star “We had a wonderful experience with Debbie for my wife’s birthday dinner in February. We have strict dietary restraints (kosher/vegetarian) and Debbie was able to accommodate us perfectly by making tomato soup with homemade bread, vegetable risotto, salmon over kale and zucchini, and a brownie parfait for dessert. Everything was delicious! Thank you to Debbie for a beautiful, professionally cooked meal in the comfort of our own home.” Benjamin Gruenbaum

“Debbie cooked an amazing meal for my husband and my first wedding anniversary. She came to the house well prepared and cooked and served a delicious and health conscious 4 course meal. Having her come to our home and prepare a special meal for our special occasion was nothing shy of amazing and made the night a lot more memorable then it would of been if we went out to dinner. I would highly recommend Debbie for any occasion!” Tiffany M.
“I hired Debbie to cook a meal for my husband’s birthday which was on a week night after a long tiring day for both of us. Debbie was very helpful around menu choices and also very flexible as I asked her to deliver the meal rather than cook in our home because we would be home on the later side. She cooked us a very delicious and healthy meal, exactly what we wanted. We had a lovely kale salad, perfectly cooked lamb chops over spinach and a side of risotto. Debbie is also a nutritionist and life coach and is also very knowledgeable about how to use food as a way to respond to problematic health conditions such as auto-immune diseases. I would highly recommend her. She is also more reasonably priced than the other private chefs in the area.” Dr. Laurie G. MD

Deb’s Healthy Plate is a convenient and delicious way to eat healthy and have organic meals for pick up or delivered to you  so you can enjoy healthy foods in the comfort of your own home or on-the-go. The food you put in your body affects your overall health and well-being.

If you’ve imagined yourself coming home to delicious and healthy meals, a clean kitchen and the time to relax and savor the moment, then you’ve imagined yourself with a Personal Chef.

Whether you are single or a family of four, our services will meet the needs of both your overwhelming schedule and your desire for freshly-prepared meals.  Together we’ll design a customized plan with your dietary and taste preferences in mind; from organic and vegetarian or Gluten free menus to Italian or Stir fry cuisine and all-American comfort food.  I choose Connecticut grown produce whenever possible and use only the freshest ingredients purchased within 24 hours of your food preparation.

We also offer in-home cooking classes; private if you prefer or with a group of friends.  Gift certificates are available too. I also offer a cooking class for a Valentine’s gift, birthday, bridal shower gift, anniversary or any occasion or someone that’s home bound.  What about those dinner parties you’ve dreamed of having where you can sit back, laugh and have a wonderful night without the stress of planning, shopping, cooking and cleaning?  Not to worry, that’s exactly what we love to do!

With our healthy meals, you can rest assured that our food has no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, pesticides, hormone injections, or other additives. Our fresh, organic, gourmet prepared meals allow you to enjoy the true flavor of food without exposure to the potentially harmful chemicals found in many mass-produced and processed foods. Our menu of healthy cuisine is based on providing wholesome, balanced, healthy food, without the added sodium, unhealthy fats, and other additives often used in gourmet cooking, which can mask the natural flavors of good food.

Our menu changes often, so you never get tired of eating the same foods.  Feel free to make requests.   As a Personal Chef, we provide wholesome, delicious and exciting meals based on your individual food preferences and requirements. We offer a wide variety of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options as well as meat and potatoes..  Each meal is prepared individually, according to your preferences, using certified organic ingredients, free-range meats and poultry, wild-caught fish, and fresh fruits and vegetables, insuring the best organic meals are delivered to your home or ready when you are to pick them up.

All meals are prepared in my home kitchen (above picture) unless you prefer me to prepare the meals in your home.  You may choose to have your food delivered locally or eat here.


“We are so happy to have found Debbie Barbiero to do meal preparation for my sister when she was undergoing chemotherapy. Debbie is very knowledgeable about Dr. Peter D’Adamo’s Eat Right for Your Type food guidelines. My sister is a patient of Dr. D’Adamo and needed someone to prepare healthy meals for her in accordance with his recommendations for her situation. She was SO HAPPY with the meals that Debbie prepared and delivered for her. She told me every day how delicious everything was, and how happy she was to know that she was eating the most nutritious and beneficial foods at such a challenging time for her. Debbie’s kind and caring food preparation and delivery helped ease her mind, body and spirit. Thank you, Debbie!!!” – Joanne J.
