Nourish Cooking offers personal chef


Emily Wenerstrom offers a business model that would nourish Delaware County residents from their own kitchen.

The Magnetic Springs resident graduated with a degree in philosophy from the Ohio State University. But after working in the food service industry, Wenerstrom decided to get serious about her career path.

“I really like working with food,” she said.

Wenerstrom and two other chefs launched a Nourish in June providing partial and complete meal preparation, parties and event catering, gifts and cooking classes.

Meal preparations generally start with a personalized menu, a stop at the grocery store and stored in a fridge or freezer to be heated at a later time. Partial meal preparations allow residents to get involved with the cooking process, Wenerstrom said.

She said there’s a subtle difference between what people are eating to what they know they’re eating.

Eventually, Wenerstrom plans to transition getting her ingredients from her family’s 80-acre farm. She said her brothers produce “organic-style” food.
