Meet Personal Chef, Caterer & Seasoned Cook: Mitch Maier

Hello there!

Personal Chef Mitch Maier

I’m Mitch, and as a Personal Chef, I think it’s important we get personal. I cook for real people, who live real lives: busy people who want to eat balanced meals, but don’t have the time, energy or know-how to prepare them after a long, hard day. I understand that and it’s why I love serving people as their personal home chef. I also enjoy catering parties and business events.

I’ve been working in food service since I was 9. I started by washing dishes and busing tables at my parents Vern and Betty Maier’s restaurant, the Dorf Haus in Roxbury, Wisconsin (recently named one of the 10 best German restaurants in the country.)

After serving in the U.S. Army, I trained in culinary at Madison Area Technical College (MATC) on the G.I. Bill. I’ve worked all over, including as:

  • a line cook back at the Dorf Haus
  • a pastry and garde manger chef assistant on the MSV Sea Goddess
  • a line cook for the Marriott in Minnesota
  • a Culinary Instructor in the Black Hills of South Dakota
  • an Executive Chef and General Manager at high-end casinos

After 30 years in the culinary industry, I noticed a growing trend: people were becoming much busier, with less time to cook and enjoy family meals. So I decided to settle back in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin with my wife and children, and start Out Of The Kitchen Personal Chef & Catering Services.

It’s now my mission to bring my passion and experience to your table by providing individuals and families with high-quality meals. I save my clients time by preparing delicious dishes right in their kitchen.
