Chef Denise Nicolau: Crafting Culinary Magic with Healthy Ingredients

Real Food Meals is the brainchild of passionate chef Denise Nicolau, whose carefully crafted menus are designed to nourish your body with pure, nutrient-dense, freshly picked seasonal ingredients. No preservatives, no additives - just wholesome food made with love.

Denise's journey to developing Real Food Meals has been fuelled by constant effort and determination. After earning a business degree in her native Brazil, she brought her vibrant energy and business acumen to Australia, receiving commercial chef training to work in restaurants.

Through sheer grit, Denise worked her way up from supplying desserts to cafés to becoming Head Chef of the award-winning Braza speciality restaurant in 2010, and later Senior Sous Chef for a major catering company honoured as the best corporate caterer in 2019.

Today, her Real Food Meals devotees order week after week, referred by friends drawn to her delicious meals lovingly cooked from the freshest ingredients and conveniently delivered. Chef Denise is a firm believer that eating whole, unprocessed foods boosts overall health and well-being.

"When you cut out preservatives, additives, and other artificial ingredients, you're eliminating potential sources of inflammation, digestive issues, and even chronic diseases," she says. "Real, nutrient-dense foods naturally provide the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fibre that our bodies need to thrive." Her philosophy echoes what many nutritionists strongly advocate.

As a North Shore business owner and mother of two, Denise has a special connection to the community. You may have seen her volunteering at the local centre. Her philosophy is simple: food is life's fuel. And she infuses that energy into every nutritious, flavour-packed dish.
