I can't say enough good things about this experience. I purchased a three hour cooking class without Marilena as a birthday gift, and my girlfriend and I had a wonderful time. Marilena was incredibly responsive with finding a time that could accommodate us, and she offered to either come to our house or allow us to cook in her lovely home, which we chose to do. We got to meet her husband and one of her sons, and at no point was it uncomfortable or awkward. For the menu, we made fresh baguettes, pasta from scratch, Dover sole with a meunière sauce, and a fresh panzanella salad. She even taught us knife skills along the way to go along with several tips to improve our overall cooking abilities. The three hours were spent with a great balance between instruction, hands on learning, eating a delicious meal, and having a great conversation. Between Marilena's engaging personality and artful, patient instruction, it's hard to identify the best part of the experience, but we couldn't have walked away more satisfied with the food or the instructor. (Marilena, if you're reading this, thank you for sharing the red velvet cupcakes!).

I've been an avid home cook for years but in just one class with Evan, I learned so many things that will make my cooking experience more fun and the meals I make more delicious. It's amazing how learning how to actually use a knife can speed things along! I took the class alongside my 14 year old son who has taken a reality show driven interest in cooking. Evan's class was great for both of us. My son learned a lot and is excited to continue his culinary journey. I so appreciate how he tailored the class to our needs. We are looking forward to more classes with Food's an Art!

Anna Stewart is a marvelous chef and my guests were so impressed with the menu. They exclaimed about the presentation and said it all melted in their mouths. Anna went above and beyond with her preparations and putting kitchen back in place before leaving. Many, many thanks to Anna. Fay Taylor

Chef Christoper Mcavoy is a passionate and talented chef who makes delicious meals. He has come to our home and exploded in our kitchen with all the necessary equipment and items to create mouth watering dishes. He does need a lot of room to spread out but always cleans everything up before he leaves. The house smells so good you feel like you are in an episode of one of the Cooking Shows, watching him prepare foods and dishes, juggling several things at once, and always turning out finished meals that taste wonderful. He is polite, straight forward and open to ideas. He is a bit hard on the stove top as he usually has numerous things cooking at the same time along with the oven going. But the house smells wonderful. The meals are usually large in quantity and always high in quality. He has definitely broadened our palate and introduced us to many new foods. He cooks with organic, natural and the freshest items, which sometimes makes him late in arriving, but always top shelf. We would definitely recommend him to others.

Annie exceeded every expectation. Not only were here culinary skills exceptional, she added several special touches that made this our best Anniversary meal yet. She can customize the menu for any dietary restriction, and actually prefers to do so. We highly recommend Annie for any occasion and only hope that we can do it again! Delicious food, exceptional service. She cooked a 6 course meal in our home kitchen. She homemade everything she could from bread and butter down to picking the first baby lettuce leaves from her garden. I don't want to give away her tricks, but there were several surprises throughout the night that showed how much she cares about her craft.

First impressions are lasting impressions and I would say my first impression of Chef JB is that he is the consummate culinary professional. Chef JB is very a knowledgeable, experienced and very patient culinary instructor. And most importantly, the end result of the cooking session is delicious food!!!!!!! I am so excited about taking lessons from Chef JB. I look forward to taking cooking lessons long term and hiring him for future events! He's a great find!

About

Chef Matt is absolutely amazing! I have been using his personal chef services and I can honestly say that he has been a blessing in our life. I first learned about Chef Matt on an online community of moms in Old Town, Alexandria. Because I had a small baby and no time to cook, I decided to order our Thanksgiving meal from him. I was so happy I did – the food was absolutely fantastic and everyone at the dinner table raved about it. In fact, it was the best Thanksgiving meal that I have ever had. Since then I have been ordering from him on a regular basis. Chef Matt’s food is fresh, healthy and out-of-this-world delicious. His recipes are very diverse and incorporate a lot of international influences, which I love. Everyone in my home is so excited when we get the food from Chef Matt. I wish I knew about him long time ago, especially after we had our baby and struggled with finding the time to cook. I know that he teaches cooking classes and I hope that one day I will have the opportunity to learn how to cook amazing food directly from Chef Matt. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for personal chef services!

About

The group cooking class was great! Show Me How met us at the market first for some great tips on shopping and discussion of the ingredients that would be used in the lesson. Lots of very useful information was gained. Then back at the kitchen we learned how to cook a bundle of different dishes in the Thai cuisine using the same group of ingredients that was purchased. I still can't believe how much we learned how to cook in one evening - not to mention we all asked a million questions about cooking in general and learned even more than just Thai Cuisine. All four of us had a great time and would absolutely recommend a cooking class from Show Me How.

About

I was being trained by Catherine years ago and I said something about " No pain, no gain " as she corrected my posture during the routine. She quickly said that no one should experience "pain" when working out. I knew then that I had FINALLY found a REAL trainer. Catherine's training and professional skills are unmatched. She simply loves doing what she does and it shows. She trains you according to your skill level and ability, and she is never distracted by today's tech gadgets ,( cellphones) which means you get 100% of her time, every time. I moved out of state for a short time and invited Catherine down for a visit and workout of course. she could not out run me on the beach, but she whipped my butt in the gym , but they were good workouts. Later on during her visit, she took me to the market and taught me how to properly shop for quality organic foods , and quickly made a knock out dish for me and my friend as we looked on and took notes. I moved back to the DMV area, reconnected with her and now I am receiving weekly healthy meals from her. Boy is that a relief. And knowing that she is a certified nutritionist only adds to her credibility. In short, if you are looking for true quality in a trainer as well as someone too cook healthy meals for you, Catherine is the hands down choice and that's why I give her 5 stars. Keep up the good work Catherine. Mark Stith Silver Spring, MD

About

Hi. My name is Apple, and I'm an executive chef. I travel throughout the US preparing delicious gourmet meals, and teaching cooking classes to my many clients (celebrities, musicians, world leaders, and ambassadors). I have an extremely wide portfolio of culinary flavours. These are the different cuisines I am well-versed in, and learned from chefs of these countries/regions on how to prepare authentically (Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, East and West Indian, Caribbean, Spanish, French and Italian). I love food and using quality ingredients, and can be found many days schlepping to farmers' markets to see what's in stock and season. Many of my customers love me for the simple fact, that I give them what they ask for, with a little extra on top. I go above and beyond my requirements as your chef. I believe wholeheartedly that the beginning of any great relationship is over amazing food, and that's what I create - amazing food! * Personal and private chef service * In-home cooking lessons * Kitchen organization * Pantry stocking and setup * Personal grocery shopping * Romantic dinners for two * Nutritional consultation for special dietary situations * Creatively themed catered parties (any occasion you can think of from 2-22 and beyond)
