Chef Mavis Linnemann-Clark founded The Delish Dish to bring her passion for gourmet food, global flavors, and knack for Southern hospitality to Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
She was raised with her triplet brother and sisters in Ryland, Kentucky, on good old- fashioned southern cooking and trips to the area’s best restaurants. She worked in bakeries, candy stores and coffee shops, all the while improving her baking skills at home with chocolate mousses and layer cakes.
Linnemann-Clark studied magazine journalism, women’s studies and film at Syracuse University. After graduating from college, she fell in love with cooking and began dreaming up new concoctions. When she wasn’t cooking, she traveled as much as she could, visiting five continents and even taking cooking classes in Umbria, Italy.
Chef Mavis moved to Chicago in 2008 for a change of scene, and in 2010, she enrolled in culinary school at Kendall College, which was ranked as the #1 program for culinary arts in Chicago by the Chicago Michelin Guide Restaurants. At Kendall, Chef Mavis was classically trained in the culinary arts and had the opportunity to take a Mexican Master Class with renowned Mexican chefs. In 2011, she graduated with a certificate in Catering and Personal Chef from Kendall.
Not long after, she moved back home to Northern Kentucky, married the man of her dreams, and established The Delish Dish to bring globally inspired gourmet and her unique artisan jams and jellies to Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
In 2013, Mavis Linnemann-Clark was chosen as a finalist in the spring class of Bad Girl Ventures, a local nonprofit devoted to the education and financing women- owned businesses. The Delish Dish joined the Northern Kentucky Incubator Kitchen and announced the launch of our Artisan Jam and Jelly product line in fall 2013. In 2014 we’re excited to announce the launch of Made By Mavis, our rebranded artisan product line.

We Keep Getting Compliments on the Food
Mavis and her team were amazingly helpful through the entire experience, and asked us all the questions we never even knew to ask. They allowed pretty extensive tasting of the desired menu upfront to help with decisions. They were very prompt in their responses to questions throughout the process. On the day of the event, they were efficient and professional. The food was absolutely delicious! We continue to proactively receive compliments from guests on how good the food was.Sent on 04/16/2019
Also, all of her jams that you get throughout the process are obscenely good.

I cannot say enough great things about Mavis and her team. At our first meeting she worked within our budget and made suggestions. Her communication skills were excellent. She was always prompt with her emails and phone calls. When Covid hit she made suggestions on how we could still have the menu we chose and make it safe for our guests. The food was delicious and we had many compliments. Several people commented on it was not your typical wedding food. We were so happy we chose Delish Dish for my daughter's wedding.Sent on 08/05/2020

Mavis and the Delish Dish crew did a fabulous job at our wedding. They catered and bartended and we heard only positive feedback from our guests. Mavis was so great to work with. She listened to exactly what my husband and I wanted (stations, including tacos and perogies!), made expert suggestions, took care of ordering all the chairs/tables/linens/dinnerware, and was always quick to respond and get things done for us. The Delish Dish absolutely contributed to the success of our wedding and we are so happy we hired them.Sent on 11/01/2016
