Delicious meals for the whole family.
Granny Cooks by Bern The Chef provides you with delicious home cooked meals delivered right to your door.
We have been updating the shop batch by batch, beef cheeks are on the way.
Pick up available from our commercial kitchen in Lane Cove. You’ll see we’ve added delivery fee- to drive cover our time & fuel costs. There’s also a small increase in food costs we have had to pass on. I’ve tried my best, but there is increased costs everywhere. What I can say is, if a meal saves you an hour of shopping, an hour or two of cooking & cleaning, the mental load of thinking about what to cook, then this saves you time, and manages your decision fatigue.

Both my Granny & Nannie were very good cooks. When cooking & dining at home was the only choice. Large families working in the manufacturing industries. Roasted meats, lots of potatoes, filling soups & fluffy dumplings. The kitchen ovens were daily work horses with so much variety, My Aunty Margaret still says her Mums rice pudding that cooked all day in the base of that oven was the B E S T !
I learnt my first lessons in those kitchens. Standing at the sink in a too big apron tied under my armpits, washing everything that came my way in steaming lemony bubbles.
A neighbour asked if I could help provide some meals by way of suggestion and also as her family had just welcomed another grandchild. With young parents working in the medical field, new parents, and the whole confusion of what Covid-19 squashed our mental health & survival instincts. This is my way of keeping my business alive with a whole lot of practicality, sensibility and comfort.

“On Thursday we received our first lot of meals from Bern the Chef. I’d done 5 hours work of gardening and the first meal was delicious. Chicken , leek and gruyure with potato dumplings. We had veggies which were pumpkin, beetroot and beans and the combo was delicious. Baked apples in toffee, date and sesame seed sauce. OMG “
