About The Alternative Chef

Born and raised in Dexter, MI, Melissa Stapish grew up in the garden and the kitchen. Her passion for cooking great food with great ingredients eventually led her to the realization that not everybody has the time or energy for mindful cooking — and thus, The Alternative Chef was launched. In Ann Arbor, her meal prep service and catering operations have been an absolute hit.

There’s practically nothing Stapish can’t cook, so you’ve got plenty of options. Cauliflower steaks with mushroom gravy? Check. Enchiladas? Check. Eggplant parm? Check. Prosciutto fried rice? Check. Herb-crusted chicken? Check. She’s running the gamut at The Alternative Chef, so quit stalling — book her to handle the catering at your next event.

Prosciutto Fried Rice — Rice fried with prosciutto, sesame snow peas, and bok choy
