Once a sous chef for Lydia Shire, Dianna MacPhee now prepares 5,000 meals a day for critically ill clients

Quincy’s Dianna MacPhee, 60, became executive chef of Community Servings in January. The Jamaica Plain-based organization provides medically tailored meals to critically ill people who can’t easily get out to grocery shop. They prepare more than 1 million meals every year. It’s a busy job, but MacPhee is used to it. As a child growing up in South Boston, she visited her mom at work at Anthony’s Pier 4. She went on to work under James Beard award-winners Lydia Shire, as a sous chef at Biba, and Vitaly Paley in Portland, Ore., before becoming chef at Quincy House at Harvard University and Café Bon Appétit at MIT.
