But let's be honest, between stressful days at work and balancing your family's busy schedule, time is short. You want to feed your family well and enjoy more time together at the table. But grocery shopping, meal prep and clean up can steal hours away from your schedule every day...time you don't want to lose.

Hi, I'm Michael Wards. After graduating from culinary school, I honed my cooking skills in Austin’s great kitchens like Second Bar + Kitchen, The Driskill Hotel, and 2 Dine 4 Catering.
Along the way, I cultivated a passion for sustainable, local, and seasonal food. I even harvested my own herb garden so that I could more easily experiment with new herb-infused recipes as I reinvented classic dishes.
The Austin Artisan was born in 2013. Rooted in the core philosophy that taste and memories are inextricably bound, today our team of elite artisan chefs creates custom menus that align with the dietary needs and preferences of everyone in your family, tempt your tastebuds, and remind you of your happiest memories.
Q: How often do you deliver?
We typically deliver on Mondays and Tuesdays between 2 PM and 5 PM. We guarantee your meals will arrive no later than 6 PM. If necessary, we can accommodate deliveries on other days of the week.
Q: If you deliver the food on Monday for the whole week, won’t some things spoil by Saturday or Sunday?
Good question! This is a common concern, but please rest assured, you have nothing to worry about. Whenever possible, we purchase directly from Austin farms and ranches, which allows for a longer shelf life than food purchased from a grocery store that's been sitting in warehouses and trucks.
Q: What types of food do you offer in your weekly meal service?
We offer a wide variety of cuisine styles from regions around the world. The vast majority of our menu selections are American, homestyle, French, Italian, Asian, Spanish, and South American. And don’t worry, we always have a TexMex meal available if you’re dying for tacos or briskett.
Q: Can I buy the service as a gift for someone else?
Yes! Chef-cooked prepared meals make perfect gifts for friends and family that could use a little TLC. They are excellent for new moms, sick or injured friends, those experiencing big life changes, neighbors going through a loss or transition of care or elderly parents living alone in the Austin area.
