Chef Kev was amazing!! We were having a company summer party for 75 people and the menu he came up with for our Carnival theme was wonderful and creative! The food was delicious and Chef Kev was so helpful! We can't wait to use him again in the future!

I hosted a group of 25 people at my daughter's home after the Women's March on Washington. I wanted to make the dinner casual and delicious, and Chef Serge was very easy to work with. In the end, we went with a menu that could be delivered and easily reheated: chicken breasts with lemon sauce, mashed potatoes, braised cabbage, ratatouille, a spinach and arugula salad with beets, and chocolate tarts. Everyone seemed to love the food, especially the salad and the ratatouille, and the dinner party was a huge success. I definitely recommend Chef Serge: his food is delicious and interesting, and he will put you at ease with his responsive, low-key style.

A GREAT dining experience from beginning to end. Chris is the ultimate professional, displaying extraordinary gourmet cooking skills blended with an engaging personality. Well before our special evening, I was given an opportunity to convey personal preferences and address any food limitations that might need to be considered. A beautiful seasonal menu was then provided, accommodating my general preferences, from which, we selected an amazing multi-course meal! Chris was right on time and established the perfect tone for a great evening to follow, inviting us to sit back and relax to becoming more involved in following his every move, if we'd like. We took advantage of the opportunity to watch a master at work and ask any questions that might help us to become any bit more skilled in the kitchen, as well. Chris' enthusiasm for the culinary world and vast knowledge about food is contagious and his dietary and nutritional tips incredibly informative. This was a welcome education on multiple levels. The beautiful presentation of each course was artwork, and our appreciation was only outdone by the delectable depth of its incredible taste. As delicious as the meal was and as informative and fun it was to watch it's preparation, Chris is simply an extremely nice, generous and caring person to invite into your home. For a unique dining experience where a gourmet restaurant, if feels, comes to the comfort of your home, rather than having to make the effort to go out to it, I KNOW you'll enjoy, as much as we did, the talents and charm of Chris Spears and a very special night you'll always remember.

Chef Jackie was an absolutely joy to work with. I had purchased a Groupon "Private Affair" for my husbands Christmas gift. We were able to choose from my different genre's of food (Asian, Mediterranean, French, American, etc.). We ended up choosing the French cuisine and it was delicious! Chef Jackie was such a great teacher as she let us do it all on our own so we would learn and taught us along the way. She is very knowledgeable and I learned so much more than I ever thought I would! I would 100% recommend her services to anyone. :)

I am so happy to write this review for the excellent service provided by Mary. Mary is not only a great professional chef; but she is also enthusiastic about her cooking and takes the time to understand her clients needs. I must add that she is a wonderful person to interact with. Food plays an integral part of my family's day; and I have no hesitations knowing Mary has prepared our meal! I know when I open the package containing the food prepared by her, I'll be in for a delicious treat!! I wish Mary all the best and will continue to work with her for nutritious and delicious meals.

Scott is fantastic and continually goes above and beyond. We planned our 25 person wedding weekend entirely from out of town, and couldn't have done it without Scott. From our first emails and Skype conversations, Scott made us feel heard and cared for -- something we definitely did not feel from the other four chefs we met with. He provided clear menu options and helped tailor the perfect selections, including accommodating our halal and vegetarian guests. Months later, our guests are still raving about the meal Scott prepared and entire experience he delivered. Beyond catering the evening, Scott and his team helped us evaluate the venue, find and acquire the linens & place settings, pick out & deliver flowers, and purchase food for the rest of the weekend. We highly recommend Scott as both a chef and as a trusted advisor with a big heart.

How do you plan a reception for 500-600 people where approximately 200 of them are famished teenagers or preteens? The answer: you contact Esther Marandure, Executive Chef, of the Epicurean Nutrition Catering Company. Ester, thank you, thank you, thank you all for the wonderful work you did to make the reception after the Northern Virginia Youth Winds December Concert a smashing success. I cannot tell you how many people have said this was one of the best receptions they had been to. The food was excellent and beautifully presented as I knew it would be after attending the tasting. Many people remarked how wonderful it was. The staff was also so delightful to work with, all very friendly and attentive. Please make certain that they all know how much they were appreciated. Your young man and the young lady are truly gracious hosts, professionally attired, helpful, and courteous; their manner speaks well of their home and family. NVYW will use your services again and without reservation, recommends your services. We have already done so. The very best of luck with your endeavors.

From start to finish, the experience with Rahea's Kakery for a baby shower at work was excellent. Placing the order was simple, payment online was quick and delivery was on time! The final product- cute vanilla cupcakes with onesies, bottles and rubber duckies on top- were created by hand and to perfection! And they were sooo yummy that I will make sure that I will order again for my next event! Thanks for such a wonderful and tasty experience!!
