About Madame Foodie
Madame Foodie is a meal organisation company founded in 2013, one of the first of its kind. It all started when, Madame Foodie herself, Raquel with her 20-years experience in the food industry decided to branch off from the usual “catering” scene and create a business offering more than just a piece of chicken and some veggies.
With Raquel’s background of being a foodie and gluten intolerant for over 20 years, she created a business that would provide Gluten Free and Dairy free meals for those struggling to find delicious food that doesn’t cause illness. Since then the business has branched out from just Gluten and Dairy free and have expanded to also catering meals for blood type, weight loss programs and other dietary needs of our customers.
Our philosophy here at Madame foodie is that food should not be avoided to lose weight or feel healthier, it should be enjoyed and have a positive relationship with you. In today’s society, it is posed that all food causes weight gain and in order to be happy you need to eat plain kale and rice. Here at Madame Foodie, we’ve proved that stigma wrong with our weight loss program, where we provide meals which encourage you to eat and we have had results.
Since that day in 2013 Madame Foodies, clientele and team has grown. We continue to help and provide meals for people with amazing feedback and we are always looking for more ways and opportunities to expand. So what are you waiting for, join the Madame Foodie family and order on the website today and receive your meals next with mad with love and delivered straight to your doorstep.
Meet the Team
Madame Foodie Boss Woman!
Raquel began journey when she created her first business “My Personal Chef” in 2000.
This business stood apart from other catering companies as she was one of the few who was offering freshness taste, homemade cooking for weddings, engagements, corporate events, birthdays and cruise ships.
With a team of 30, Raquel cooked for Channel 7, Pan Macmillan, Colgate Palmolive, St George Bank and many others. Raquel also found a niche market for preparing fresh, healthy, delicious meals for elite athletes such as Steve Waugh & his family, Glenn McGrath, the Sydney Swans, the Brumbies and Rugby League Teams.
In 2005, Raquel sold her successful business to enjoy her three children. Itchy feet set in a few years later and Raquel bought, built and sold “Organics Only” which was a home delivery business of fresh organic produce, breads, meats and dairy groceries. This business was everything Raquel believes in – fresh, healthy food for ultimate wellness.
Today, Raquel has created “Madame Foodie” simply, fresh and quickly with minimal fuss and maximum impact and she continues to bring creativity and inspiration to Madame Foodie and the team. She’s the lady to go to if you need something pulled out of the air to create a perfect dish or if you need something done quickly, more than likely shes already got it done. She’s the powerhouse of the team and an inspirational Boss women to all of us at Madame Foodie.
Nadia has been Madame Foodies right-hand man for over 20 years, always being a reliable companion in the kitchen. Starting with Raquel with odd catering gigs, to now being together in the kitchen 20 years later they have a bond and thought process that we sometimes think they can telepathically talk to each other.
As the business has expanded Nadia has gained the role of “Queen of Family meals” pumping out family meals each week for our Foodie Families to enjoy this is also whilst she makes her famous muffins and her perfect omelettes, her multitasking skills are crazy you almost get dizzy with how fast she works. Perfection for each one, her attention to detail is one that cannot be flawed. She has made that many lasagnas that she could do it with her eyes closed by now!
Nadia brings so much to the Madame Foodie kitchen, and without her, we would be lost, her talent and organisation skills are through the roof. She’s the glue to the madness in the kitchen and she is a valuable member of our team.
Over 20 years ago, Jackie Drury worked for me in my first business, cooking up a storm and feeding 1000’s of people! Just recently, Jackie approached us to enquire about joining our team. We jumped at the chance!
Jackie is a passionate, healthy foodie who loves to be very organised in the kitchen. Her attention to detail is what you see when you open your individual meals and her passion for flavour is what you will taste.
Jackie now heads up the Individual Meal Department and we love her being part of our team, sharing her knowledge and smashing out beautiful dishes.
Elaine you could say is everyone’s most loved member, Elaine is our cleaning hand here at Madame Foodie and she started with us through the Nova program.
We at Madame Foodie can get quite messy with the organised chaos that goes in the kitchen and everyday Elaine comes ready to tackle the mountain of washing up, and within no time the whole pile is washed dried and put away…before we start a new pile.
She also helps us out with the things we can never have time to get to such as labelling our meals. Elaine is a very valuable member of our Madame Foodie kitchen and without her, it would be terribly messy and chaotic. She also can chop bags of chillis and lemons as they are in high demand around the kitchen as our signature touch in all the meals. Elaine manages to keep up with this high demand.
Elaine is a hard worker and very committed to getting her jobs done we love her work at Madame Foodie!
