Simplifying the healthy life in the most delicious way.
Nutreatious is a team of chefs who work to bring that simplicity to each client with a smile. The chefs not only love to cook, but love making a difference in the client’s life each and every day.
The list of services has grown from personal chef services to boutique catering, cooking lessons and kitchen organization. Nutreatious creates personalized experiences for each and every client, whether that client needs a vegan menu, allergen-free foods, or a classic meal like Boeuf Bourguignon. Nutreatious currently serves Baltimore, Frederick, Annapolis, DC and surrounding areas.
CEO and founder, Dana Sicko founded Nutreatious in 2011 while she was working as a nutrition consultant at FX Studios in Hunt Valley, MD. Many of her clients came to her with similar stories of wanting to be healthy, but not having the time due to work, crazy schedules or a disinterest in cooking. Dana was always cooking healthy treats for her clients and her boss recommended taking the service to the next level by cooking in the clients' homes.
She quickly saw that this was the impact she wanted to make in peoples' lives: making the healthy life simple in the most delicious way!
