Meal Mama is all about delicious and healthy home cooking. We are not your “fancy shmancy” gourmet chef.
We are not into coin-sized meals that look like they'd do better in a museum than on your plate. Mama's meals are nutritious, bountiful, affordable and comforting. While you eat a meal from Meal Mama you will be reminded of perhaps your mother's kitchen. You will experience nostalgia for the days when she prepared home cooked meals for you.
Like you did back then, you will want more.
Meal Mama is a mother/daughter team that understands memories are made in the kitchen. Although Ani Cohen,
also known as “mama”, has no formal culinary training, she has a lifetime of experience cooking for friends and family,
hosting dinner parties and running a catering company. Most importantly, she cherished the times she used to cook for
her two daughters and looks forward to pampering them with her meals when they come to visit. As the head chef for Meal Mama, she hopes to grow a fan base that loves her cooking as much as her daughters do and to encourage her
customers to create memories around her food. She wants to know that her customers are well fed, happy and healthy.
