How it Works

At Madison & Rayne we have redefined the cooking experience. All you need, we believe, is a personal chef and some finely prepared dinner components.

Here’s the catch: the personal chef is you. After watching countless cooking shows where a gorgeous meal is put together within a matter of minutes, we realized that the ease and convenience of a cooking show preparation – the pre-measured, pre-marinated, washed, chopped, sliced, and ready for assembly ingredients – are all that a person needs to create a wonderful dinner. Think personal shopper, personal assistant, and personal delivery all rolled into one. Minimal prep and minimal clean-up means that your valuable time is better spent cooking and enjoying your dinner. Mealtime should fit seamlessly into your day: we give you all the tools you need to make that happen.

You customize your order (so you get exactly what you want)

  • Order meals from our menu for the following week – we’ll send you prepared ingredients ready for cooking
  • 6 dinner entrees and 3 lunch options to choose from
  • Select the number of servings you want for each meal (one adult serving generally feeds 2 kids under the age of 10)
  • Food preferences and allergies can be accommodated – we can exclude or replace ingredients
  • Order by midnight Saturday for Tuesday delivery…or join our Chef’s Tasting Program to make ordering even easier

We buy fresh ingredients from local farms

  • Our chef sources high-quality meat, vegetables and grains from local farms
  • We maintain a strong focus on organic and sustainable products
  • Every month we create new meals inspired by the season’s produce

Our chef does the meal preparation for you

  • Meats and fish are seasoned and marinated
  • Vegetables are washed and chopped
  • All ingredients are pre-measured
  • The chef creates sauces and glazes to add complex flavor to your meal

We deliver to your door

  • Delivery is FREE within the city of Chicago with a $50 minimum order. Otherwise, a delivery fee may apply. For the Chicago suburbs, a delivery charge will be applied before you checkout.
  • Choose the delivery time window on Tuesday that works best for you (12:00-4:00 pm or 4:00-8:00 pm)
  • Meals are delivered to your door in a temperature-controlled reusable tote bag
  • Tell us any special instructions we should know (such as “ring the top buzzer” or “leave tote with my doorman”)

You do the cooking (and get all of the credit)

  • Detailed recipe cards make it easy to assemble your meal
  • All ingredients clearly labeled in individual containers
  • You can control amount of spice and seasoning
  • It’s fun and easy, but we have a hotline available if you need help along the way

We try to keep clean-up to a minimum – and we’ll recycle for you too

  • Clean-up is easy – most meals require only 1 or 2 pans
  • Just rinse out your ingredient containers and put them back in the tote
  • At your next delivery, we’ll pick up your cooler tote and containers to be reused next time

Our customers tell us cooking with Madison & Rayne is fast, convenient, incredibly delicious and fun! Dinner can be a family affair, a mid-week date night or just a relaxing evening where you create something special.
