Chef Kev provided wonderful food and outstanding customer service. He was very pleasant to work with. He and his assistant, Anita, made it possible for us to relax and be good hosts while our guests were taken care of. I appreciated the worry-free night knowing that everything was handled. Anita even chatted with guests who didn't know many people to make sure they were having a good time. My favorite items were the pasta salad, pulled pork sandwiches, and the dessert tray items because they tasted great and they were easy to eat on small plates while standing up. The sparkling punch with strawberries was so good -- I think I drank a whole pitcher. Bonus: my fridge is full of awesome leftovers. I won't have to cook for a week.

I arranged a private cooking class at my home for several of my friends as a Christmas gift. The event was a great success! Learned how to make pasta and other tips about cooking. Our event was last night 1/9/16. I would highly recommend Stephanie and would use her again for other events. Isabel

I would give Nasrin six stars if I could. She agreed to prepare dinner for two on the occasion of my wife's birthday. Over the course of 10-days of planning she consistently demonstrated creativity, flexibility, and reliability. On the night of the surprise dinner, she produced a delicious feast of regional dishes, in generous quantities. My wife was surprised and delighted, so I couldn't have been happier. Highly recommended!

The cooking lesson was for my teen daughter. Mary was very accommodating. She was well prepared and very professional. She taught my daughter with patience and she made it fun for her. She taught her terminology and safety, as well as helped her to create a wonderful meal. My daughter will continue taking culinary classes with Mary and I would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.

I attended two cooking classes ( light Mexican and healthy grains) taught by Chris & Emily at the William Tally Rec Center. I highly recommend these classes. They were very informational and Chris &Emily are full of cooking knowledge which they share. We made several recipes and sampled our finished dishes. After the Mexican class, I promptly purchased a tortilla press. It is so easy to make your own corn tortillas. I would have never tried it on my own. Lori

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Chef Jackie. She is a delightful person, who also did a lovely job cooking, serving, and cleaning up for a small (4 people) dinner party. She arrived late, but did call to let us know, and she was ready when the guest of honor and her partner arrived. The presentation was nice, and the food was good. Her chocolate mousse was outstanding! She also did a great job of cleaning up. This is not a knock, but she doesn't stand on ceremony, so if you are looking for very formal service, this isn't it (which fit my style just fine). I definitely recommend her for catering a party, and expect she would be a wonderful teacher for a cooking class.

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!

Kelsey gave my daughter an in-home cooking lesson. She selected a wonderful menu and was very professional while still being flexible and fun with my daughter. The meal was also superb! My daughter had a wonderful time and is now inspired to be a young chef. Our experience was fantastic and I highly recommend Kelsey.

We were lucky enough to catch Ed, specifically, on an "away trip" in North Carolina where we had him come in to cook for a small gathering in honor of my wife's birthday. We weren't looking for a formal meal, and we had a series of small dishes fit for socializing and gaming while we ate. There were also some innovative sweets for dessert. We got what we were looking for, and everybody had a great time with the food and also with Ed.

Kristin has been providing meals for my family for the past 3 years. Typically, I will order twice a week and it has made my life so much easier to come home from work and have a hot meal already prepared. Her menu changes weekly and the variety is impressive. If I need her to use brown rice instead of white, or if I would like extra spinach, it is never an issue. Her meals are always on time and delicious. I have recommended her to many friends. I have also been to a few cooking classes that Kristin has held at her home and was able to come away with easy recipes that require little time in the kitchen. Her attention to detail is extremely important to her and you can tell from the meals she provides to the cooking classes she hosts. The only thing that would improve the service is if she delivered. : )

Melissa prepared a spectacular birthday dinner for my Mom's 60th birthday, everything was perfect and I'm so thankful to have had Melissa do something special and unique for my mom. Melissa was friendly and is a very skilled chef. Before the date of the dinner, we had a long conversation about food likes/dislikes and the flow of the menu. Melissa was amenable to whatever I suggested, and her menu for the dinner was creative and delicious. Melissa prepared a starter cheese plate which had two cheeses, Italian soda bread, fig spread and granny smith apple. So tasty! Our first course was a shaved brussel sprout salad with warm mustard and apricot vinaigrette. Oh my gosh--THAT was delicious. Our second course consisted of braised lamb shank with parmesan polenta and lots of herbs. Again, very creative and delicious. Melissa is so talented and very nice to be around. She prepped the food, cooked everything, and left the kitchen spotless when she left. She was timely when arriving, and had the courses served promptly and spaced out just right. I would highly suggest Melissa to anyone looking for a personal chef for a special occasion or to help plan and prep meals on a weekly basis.
