Meet the Passionate Team Behind Nourish Culinary

Founder of Nourish Culinary

Meet Our Founder

Dara Lyubinsky honed her proverbial knife skills in some of New York City’s busiest kitchens. She’s lent her food-styling savvy to authors and celebrity chefs, and programs like ABC’s The View. And she’s developed recipes for The New York Times, Saveur, Washington Family Magazine, and multiple best-selling cookbooks.

Over time, Dara discovered her passion was in families’ homes, preparing chef-made meals for their life events and everyday living. The Nourish Culinary crew is a team of culinary pros who share her passion for crafting wholesome foods and nourishing experiences.

From professional athletes with strict dietary plans to bustling households with picky palates, Dara’s team has become a vital fixture in their clients’ everyday lives.

Dara lives in North Bethesda with her husband, Michael, and their three children who completely take their live-in private chef for granted—but always clear their plates from the table.
