Beach Plum Chef of Cape Cod is a personal chef service specializing in simplicity, wellness, and the lighter side of fine dining.

We make everything from scratch – that means homemade pies – lobster bisque made to order – pesto from fresh basil – and light vegetable sauces made from ripe picked vegetables and good wines.

The owner, Dana Dunbar, has applied her 25 plus years of professional chef experience in fine dining, spa venues and other – and has written most of the recipes that serve her clients today. 

She also has extensive experience writing recipes and menus to support gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free and other specific dietary needs, and will welcome your input.

At Beach Plum Chef, a happy event means that the food you eat likes you back; eating well is feeling well. 🙂

Beach Plum Chef of Cape Cod catering menus feature local fish, grass fed meats, game, organic poultry, Cape Cod farmer’s market highlights, and artisan specialties.

Beach Plum Chef is featured in Cape Cod Magazine’s Jan-Feb 2012 Food Guide. 🙂

We are pleased to be featured in the Feb/ March issue of Cape Cod Food Lovers Guide.

Beach Plum Chef also offers catering services for vegetarian, vegan, special events and weddings on Cape Cod.
