We hired Rosa to do our wedding cake! She let us have a tasting to try several cakes and they were very delicious. We knew right after the tasting that we want to hire her. She also gave us many ideas and showed us pictures of cakes to help me decide what kind of style we wanted.

FOODWAYS AND FOLKTALES by Vera Oye’ Yaa Anna In January 2008, Vera Oye’ Yaa Anna, presented a program for the African Section of the African and Middle Eastern Division of the Library of Congress entitled “Foodways and Folklore.” As a culinary Griot, Ms. Yaa Anna prepared a buffet meal of Garlic Collard Greens, Couscous, Jerk Turkey, Spinach and Cilantro and fried plantains, with Auntie Oye’ Pettit Rice Bread Muffins for dessert and a beverage of Alkaline tea, made with ph balanced water. The program was open to the public, and as it was held on a Saturday, many families came. Understandably, there were no left overs. The carefully and tastefully presented food was served alongside folktales and history about how these foods came to be, and the interconnection between Liberia, the native land of Yaa Anna, and the United States. She told the history of how freed slaves came back to Liberia with some influence of the times they spent in the United States. Later in the program, Yaa Anna told humorous, moral tales in the fashion of the Palaver Hut, a Liberian tradition where people hold discussions and tell stories. The three-hour program, which included time to eat the delicious food, time to hear the history of the food and time to hear amusing stories with some sage information embedded in them. Yaa Anna’s engaging story-telling, healthy and lovingly prepared gourmet dishes made for a fun and educational Saturday for the two dozen visitors, who then asked “when are you going to do this again?” We here at the Library of Congress would gladly extend the invitation again for this excellent program.

I hired Anna to cater a baby shower I was hosting for a friend. She was so easy to work with and flexible with menu choices. It was my first time hiring a chef and she made the experience awesome and I definitely would hire her again. She provided tasteful decor to accompany the table and the food was wonderful!

It was such a pleasure to work with Stephanie who designed the most beautiful seashells cake to celebrate an anniversary! We called late in the season but she managed to work us in graciously and relieved our stress. Nothing could have been more beautiful than the two tiered cake the color of sand adorned with white chocolate seashells filled with delicious chocolate caramel! Stephanie guided us in the decision process, was prompt, professional and just a delight to work with. Love in the Detail's cakes comes with our highest recommendation!

I must say! When I first heard of Rahea's Kakery, I was a bit curious. The owner being so young. What could she offer? Well I was impressed by the homemade buttercreme icing and the oh so moist cupcakes. I will continue to use her services for any event that I need cupcakes, sheet cakes and anything that have to do with cakes. I highly recommend this young entrepreneur to anyone! ONE HAPPY CUSTOMER :)

I hosted a group cooking class at my home with Chef Dorina. What a great time! There were 9 of us and everyone got involved everyone learned and the meal we made was amazing! The best part is Dorina teaches things in a way that makes it easy to learn and remember. I will be making the dishes I learned now on a regular basis! We have already set up another class for next month... we all can't wait! Thanks Dorina!

When we first met to discuss what we wanted in a wedding cake you thought our selection of pumpkin spice with a French Buttercream filling off the wall and so did my Mom. However, instead of trying to talk us out of it, as she did, you accepted the challenge and delivered a fantastic cake. It was extremely moist and the pumpkin spice flavor was not over powering. Everyone raved about the cake and the ruins writing on each layer. Your cake had a place of honor in the alcove off the main hall on our wedding day. It fit in perfectly with the medieval location we selected for our wedding ceremony and reception. I highly recommend your pastries and cakes, without reservation, to anyone planning a wedding, party or other special event. There is nothing like custom pastries and cakes prepared by a chef willing to push the envelope of flavor and design. Wishing you the very best for continued success in your profession.
