Chef de Cuisine

Concord, California

Methodology is a luxury, sustainable wellness brand that provides nourishing, ready-to-eat, gourmet meals to busy professionals and families across America. Launched nearly a decade ago, we’ve served over 125,000 customers, over 3 million meals, and 2,500 recipes.

We’re the leader in the high-end, healthy food delivery category. We’ve been featured by media outlets such as Rolling Stone, Goop, Men’s Health, Well + Good, Epicurious, and Fortune. Our celebrity clients include Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr, Meghan Trainor, Sarah Hyland, Tyler Blackburn, and Zedd.

Methodology is the top choice for discerning, health-conscious, environmentally-conscious customers because we offer the highest quality, most delicious, fully cooked meals packaged in reusable glass jars and reusable bento bowls, which we recollect upon each delivery for recycling. Our customers also value that our menus incorporate rare, fine dining-quality produce grown just for us in greenhouses on our partner farm.

We're on a mission to empower people to heal their bodies and minds using food as medicine. We take this so seriously we’ve even trademarked “food as medicine” as our tagline and go to great lengths to make sure every meal we design is nutritionally balanced and leave our guests feeling light, energetic, and satisfied. This is why we invested over $200,000 to complete a clinical study with Stanford University, which validated our nutrition program as the gold standard for improving weight, dietary compliance, glucose stability, and more. Our team includes America’s most renowned gastroenterologist as our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, author of the NYT bestselling book on gut health, “Fiber Fueled.”

Our vision is to reimagine the everyday at-home dining experience to be nourishing, memorable, joyful, and educational. Our global menu will transport you on a journey around the world with ingredients and dishes you’ve never experienced before.
