MChef delivers exquisite food to gourmets, without kitchen or chef – round the clock

Gütersloh/Stuttgart/Hamburg No. 012/2020
  • From starters to three-course menu, all on porcelain plates

  • All dishes and ingredients are done to a T at precisely the same time

Hotel kitchens have often little to offer late arrivals. And getting a bite to eat at the bar is often difficult, too. That is where the service provided by MChef comes in: The Bielefeld-based company founded by Martin Eilerts, a trained chef, delivers top-class cuisine throughout Germany – appetisingly arranged on porcelain plates. Within around only 25 minutes, the food is cooked to perfection in a Miele dialog oven.

Carpaccio with goat cheese cream, fried halibut cheeks, or maple cream with a salty peanut crust: The MChef menu promises exquisite pleasure and is available online. Online orders received before noon are delivered by courier within 48 hours. On its way to clients, the fine fare remains fresh in specially designed transport crates. These boxes accommodate up to 8 dishes, in up to four climatic zones which guarantee the ideal temperatures for food and even wine. Plates and gravy boats for starters, main courses and desserts are made from resilient porcelain of the type used by airlines’ in-flight food services. After use, the crockery is placed back in the box for the return journey – even without washing up. That chore can be safely left to the MChef team.

Preparing the food requires a dialog oven from Miele – a product which cooks food uniformly throughout using electro-magnetic waves. This appliance allows up to 6 dishes with different ingredients to complete cooking at exactly the same time. Communication between the appliance and the dishes from the MChef menu is facilitated by an app, available for iOS and Android. Users are provided with an individual account which automatically logs all orders and transfers the appropriate settings to the dialog oven for the food concerned. This makes interaction with the machine child's play – allowing discerning guests to be spoiled around the clock.
