Food that tastes extraordinary is made with love and passion.
Founded by Katherine (Katie) Kidder in 2015, The Chappy Kitchen brings good food to you. Our farm fresh fare celebrates the bounty of local farms, access to fresh seafood and poultry, and the joy that can only come from a home-cooked gourmet meal.
Growing up on a farm in Keene, New Hampshire, Katie knew from an early age that local and fresh were always the best. She built her culinary chops working alongside her mom, cooking, jarring, canning and preserving the fresh flavors, and alongside her dad caring for the animals from her family's farm. With a bounty of gardens and bevy of farm animals around her during childhood, it only made sense that she would make food her career.
Shortly after feeding her whole neighborhood freshly made meals from her grill during the recovery from Hurricane Sandy, the concept of delivering fresh food to people’s homes was born.
The Chappy Kitchen allows residents and visitors to Chappaquiddick to enjoy local fare at home or on the beach. We change our menus weekly to celebrate the season’s best. Whether you want to come home from a day at the beach to a ready-made gourmet dinner or enjoy a beachside picnic during the day, The Chappy Kitchen will deliver good food to you, expertly prepared and ready for you to enjoy. Our gourmet delivery service is the hassle free way to enjoy the freshest fare the island has to offer.
In 2015, The Chappy Kitchen also began offering gourmet meal delivery to boarding school students at Katie’s alma mater, Proctor Academy, in her home state of New Hampshire and will be launching a brand dedicated to providing wholesome, home-cooked meals to boarding school students.
Additionally, in 2018 Katie reopened Jerry’s Place on Chappy, a revamped version of the old Chappy Store, which is the only store on Chappaquiddick and your one stop shop for gourmet to-go food and everyday necessities.
The Chappy Kitchen is a proud supporter of the Martha’s Vineyard Animal Shelter, The Farm Institute, the Chappaquiddick Community Center and Chilmark Elementary School.
The Chappy Kitchen offers hassle-free, healthy, gourmet meals made from locally sourced ingredients across Martha’s Vineyard.
Our fresh, gourmet meals feature fresh fruits and vegetables from Slip Away Farms on Chappaquiddick and Morning Glory Farm in Edgartown, eggs and poultry from Cleveland Farm in West Tisbury, and fresh seafood from Edgartown Seafood.
