The Service:  Top Chef Meals is a freshly prepared, chef-crafted meal service that is uniquely priced at $10/meal and less. Providing customers with a full range of service options including a comprehensive, accelerated diet plan, paleo meal plan and provision of individual meals as a home meal replacement service.

With its simple beginnings in Westchester County, Top Chef Meals now individually prepares affordable, restaurant quality meals, hand-plated by our own chefs and delivered throughout the eastern United States. Our healthy and delicious meals provide a perfect nutritional balance and are perfectly suited for those on a budget. 

Price: Each meals that includes and entree and two sides are priced from $6.85 each.  Socially concious all seniors, those who are homebound, and the disabled receive a 15% discount on all meals bringing the per meal cost down to below $5.85.  That's less expensive than every other on line meal vendor by a wide margin.  Free shipping is offered in the New York Metropolitan area with purchases of at least $110, and is offered on FedEx shipped meals when a full insulated shipper of 21 meals are purchased. 

Founder BackgroundBorn in Manhattan, raised in Westchester, Paul has a degree in Engineering Operations.  While growing up was actively involved in the family business Execu-Lunch Inc, one of Westchester first Corporate caterers.  Paul spent 7 years in the US Air Force both flying fighter airplanes as well as working as a program manager of procurement.  Following this he worked for 4 years as a program director of development programs at a systems and software defense contractor before joining the family business.  Once joining Execu-Lunch he led the company through a 400% growth before his father retired.

Story: Top Chef Meals is the brainchild of Paul Ghiron, a mesh of his unique experiences working as a caterer and conversations with his father. Paul found himself heavily involved in the corporate catering world back in 2010, as he worked as the President of The Crystal Spoon Corp. He employed numerous chefs and support staff who catered corporate and business get togethers throughout Westchester county. However, he always found it irksome that his staff was severely underutilized after the huge rush of business lunches they catered everyday.

One day, his father called him up frustrated by the lack of offerings for dinner that a single person is faced with and asked if he wouldn't mind bringing over dinner that night. During the conversation that ensued, the idea of Top Chef Meals was born! Top Chef Meals would use the Crystal Spoon's untapped chef talent to make meals for singles, couples or even families who were too busy to cook or who just wanted a fresh made, chef prepared, healthy, nutritious meal delivered to their home.

"Ordered these for my 65 year old dad and he said, " it was great"
My mom passed away 8 months ago and my dad at 65 years old is kitchen/ grocery shopping challenged. Every time I would visit I would try to bring home cooked meals that I would freeze and bag so he could thaw them out boil them and eat. Living a few states away it would break my heart knowing he was eating hot dogs and grilled cheese when the meals ran out. This week I decided to try top chef meals and ordered him 7 dinners. I loved how I could customize the sides to his taste preferences. He received his delivery yesterday and left one meal in the fridge and placed the rest in the freezer. I just got off the phone with him and he loved it. He put it in his toaster oven took a shower and had a warm home cooked meal by the time he was out. He took another one out of the freezer for tomorrow and I can't wait to hear how it is. The price is incredible and is definitely worth it. I will definitely be ordering again and am so happy I found this company."

"Really good food - just placed my second order
I found this site when I was trying to find frozen meals to take to work that aren't full of preservatives and other crap. I don't always have leftovers or time to make lunch to bring and there aren't a ton of healthy choices near my office for carryout. I'm trying to eat paleo/low carb which narrows my choices even more. This is a perfect compromise - the prices are great and the food is surprisingly good. I've been happy with everything I've had so far and I just placed my second order."

"Exceeded my expectations, hands down.
I have to be honest, I wasn't expecting much when I placed my first order of the paleo diet plan but immediately after eating my first meal I knew I was very wrong. Meal after meal, each one fresh and delicious. If you're even thinking about it, give them a try, you won't be disappointed."
