"Bellamy Kitchen's meals are fresh, packed with flavor and nutritious. I enjoy the mix and balance of hot meal options, veggie sides and soups. The proteins and veggies are high quality - no antibiotics, no hormones in the meats and fresh colorful produce. A few favorites are the chili (packed with flavor and beans, and not greasy!), meatloaf, baked meatballs, assorted veggie risottos, vegetable tian, and the minestrone and white bean with kale soups. It's also a treat to work with Meredith, easy email ordering and on-time deliveries." ~CO
"I fully recommend Meredith and Bellamy Kitchen. We have used Meredith in several occasions, starting with the birth of a friends son. Meredith also stocked our fridge when our son was born and has been helping me out with food in the fridge for my transition back to work. She has helped us with my father in laws 70th birthday party and has provided amazing food for when we have friends in town. The food is always delicious, fresh and made from quality ingredients. We are hosting thanksgiving at our house this year and I am going to ask her to help with that as well. I wish I could have her cook for me on a full time basis! She is always very professional and has taught me a lot about nutrition in general." ~MD
"I would like to take a moment to let you know how happy I am with Meredith Chartier and Bellamy Kitchen. I come from a family of great cooks, so I really appreciate and recognize great food. Every week I am getting a fabulous variety of fresh, interesting meals. With the demands of work and helping to care for my elderly parents, this has been a true blessing. I get the double order so I bring my parents Meredith's food as well. Today we shared a sweet potato pizza! Enjoy!" ~IP

Meredith Chartier is the chef and owner of Bellamy Kitchen. While not a trained chef, Meredith boasts years of experience in a home kitchen. As a child, Meredith was always welcomed into the kitchen by her mother, aunt, and grandmother. She believes her love of cooking and entertaining began very young. She has many fond memories of creating "Family Dinners" at Fairfield University with her housemates at Lantern Point Beach. Meredith graduated from Fairfield with a degree in English Literature and taught elementary school for ten years. During these ten years, Meredith continued to cook and add to her vast repertoire. One of her first and favorites, the calzone, was the first meal she prepared for her now husband Tom and is still a favorite! In the winter of 2012, a dear friend gave Meredith an opportunity that would change her career path. Pastry Chef Nicole Juliano Peranick asked Meredith to create the savory portion of a "Sweet and Savory Soiree" planned for a client. Meredith identifies this night as a defining moment in her career and is incredibly grateful for Nikki's help. Less than a year later, Meredith launched Bellamy Kitchen.
