This was a great experience from start to finish. Ashley planned a great meal, was flexible and responsive, and really created a memorable meal for us and our guests. Highly recommended!Jan 30, 2018Verified
Ashley and her staff were awesome. She was extremely easy to work with and our dinner was lovely. Even in just a week's time she was able to plan a fantastic NYE dinner for 12. I highly recommend! I can't wait for another reason to work with her.Jan 2, 2017Verified
Ashley is an excellent personal chef. She was fully prepared and cleaned up after herself. The food was delicious. I did this for my anniversary and my husband was absolutely surprised. He truly enjoyed his dining experience. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we forgot to take pictures of ourselves and our desert. We will definitely be hiring her again. Thank you for your service.Sep 6, 2016Verified
Ashley and her crew were outstanding. Her food was delicious and plentiful. She was just what we needed for a party of 35. She was on time, had the food prepared and set up and cleaned up beautifully. Thank you Ashley.Sep 4, 2016Verified
We loved Ashley's cooking! She created a taco bar spread for a group of 20 students that I work with and everyone was raving about it. Ashely was right on time and set everything up for us beautifully. We'll definitely be calling her again in the future! Thank you, Ashley!Jul 16, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a standard pricing system for ongoing private chef services only. For one time services the price is based on food required, equipment and staff needed, if any.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelors Degree in Hotel/Restaurant Management from University of Maryland. I am currently a Certified Food Protection Professional and Nutrition Director at a Nursing and Rehab facility which is great because I am familiar with various diets such as gluten free, diabetic, renal etc.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?While in college I earned 4 years of classic culinary skills. After college I was a part owner and Chef of a catering company that was based in Washington DC while being a Restaurant Manager and Chef Manager. In 2014, I began to work on my idea of being a private chef. I wanted to give a more personal and exclusive experience to my clients. After ending my more broad catering company, I started She Cooks. My company is named that because when people would introduce me to other people, they would say "This is Ashley, and she cooks".
