Where do I even begin? If you have the opportunity to hire Chef Diane, you absolutely should! My husband and I hired her as a personal chef for one week as a special "stay-cation" and she is fabulous! Diane called us the week before she would be coming to plan personalized meals that we would love, she was always punctual, she was so personable and easy to talk to, she was very reasonably priced, and, perhaps most importantly when you are hiring a chef, the food was DELICIOUS! :) We couldn't be happier with our experience and it certainly won't be the last time we hire chef Diane with RedFox Dinners!

Chef Serge and his sous chef did a fantastic job preparing s three course dinner for an 80th birthday celebration for my mother-in-law. Our guests ranged in age from 4-86 and Chef Serge did a terrific job in helping us craft a menu that was pleasing to the wide range of palates present. He also brought plates and silverware for an additional fee which made everything so much simpler for us. The food was delicious. We had both fish and chicken available and both were cooked beautifully with the right amount of seasoning. He surprised us with an amuse bouche that left all of us looking forward to the rest of the meal. Chef Serge incorporated fresh seasonal ingredients into our meal. It was a blistering hot day so we all appreciated his use of summer fruit and vegetables. The ratatouille--was fabulous! We were particularly impressed by Chef Serge's friendly demeanor and how patient and engaged he was with the children. The kids really enjoyed watching the meal being prepared and had lots of questions to ask. Chef Serge and his souse chef answered them all and kept the children engaged. In the words of my nephew, "He's a great Chef!" We are so happy that we hired Chef Serge and Pure Kitchen Culinary Concept. We were able to relax and thoroughly enjoy ourselves and we hope to do it again soon.

Chef Kev was very responsive during the email communication process. I told him what kind of event I was having and he developed the perfect menu. Chef Kev arrived right on time and was very friendly. The food was delicious! My guest loved every bit of it. I highly recommend his Mesquite Shrimp Salad. Job well done!!

Chef Chris Spear is in one word, amazing. If I didn't limit myself to one word, I'd also add in: incredible, talented, entertaining, knowledgeable, friendly, intelligent, thoughtful, creative, and brilliant. My wife and I just had our third son a month prior, and it was her birthday and we were not able to go out and celebrate due to the wonderful chaos of having a new little one tethered to mom. Chris was able to bring more than just the restaurant experience to us with this incredible service he provides. We learned new cooking techniques, flavor combinations, recipes that are easy for weekly meal making with little-to-no time, and more. As advertised, Chris brought everything: the ingredients, the dishes, the serving ware, the napkins and place settings; EVERYTHING. And then he took it all home with him. Chris spent almost a solid 5 hours with us and never made us feel rushed or hurried throughout the whole experience. He explained all his dishes, discussed the ingredients with us, gave us his perspective and thoughts on the dish, all while giving us stories about his own personal life and family and how he got to where he is today. He clearly loves what he does and it shows through on the food. My wife and I cannot wait to remake the dishes, and have already started looking at new cookware that Chris recommended. Chris even gave us links and recommendations for recipes that were not part of the meal experience we had signed up for. Chris clearly cares about the food and experience first, which is beyond refreshing and hopefully what helps set him above other chefs. We have told both of our entire families and friends about this experience and could not recommend Chris more. I hope people believe us and take the opportunity to have a similarly amazing experience with Chris. Ours was truly a great experience, and for that, the least we can do is say THANK YOU to Chef Chris!

Rakita was instrumental in helping my husband pull of the best First Mother's Day a girl could ask for. He surprised me by hiring her to come to our home to cook for us, eliminating the stress of going out to eat somewhere nice with a 6-month-old. Rakita's menu choices were varied and suited to different tastes. My husband had a blue cheese crusted steak that he said easily ranks among the best of his life (and this man loves his steak). I had a lobster and shrimp dish over truffled risotto that was equally flavorful and praise-worthy. We shared a better-than-the-Melting-Pot cheese fondue, well-seasoned spring salads, and tasty strawberry shortcake. Wine and a bouquet of fresh tulips were included in the service, as well as the washing of all dishes used in the preparation of our meal. Rakita was friendly, yet very professional. She eliminated the awkwardness that could be associated with hiring a personal chef, and worked quickly in our kitchen while we relaxed. I especially appreciated this, as we had just come off travel and I was recovering from a less-than-pleasant illness. I'd highly recommend Rakita Lillard as a personal chef. She's a fantastic chef, and from what my husband says, comes in at an incredibly fair price point.

It was a stroke of brilliance on my part to engage a professional chef to cook my 60th birthday dinner instead of doing it myself or having my foodie friends provide a pot-luck. Why? Because Chef Matt took care of everything so that I could relax and enjoy my time with friends. Matt was easy and pleasant to work with both in the planning and execution of the dinner. My guests and I were especially impressed with the high quality ingredients, including Alaskan salmon and grass-feed beef, and the sauces that were flavorful but not overwhelming. All the vegetables were fresh and nicely seasoned. The theme was Mediterranean and Matt started us off with abundant charcuterie/cheese/vegetable boards that were also beautiful to the eye. He took into consideration the dietary restrictions of some of my guests so that everyone had plenty to enjoy. I will definitely have Chef Matt in my kitchen again. My friends agreed that we are ready for a new twist on pot-luck where everyone just throws in some money for a personal chef service and sits back to reap the fruits of someone else's labors, all in the comfort and coziness of our own home. Chef Matt will be the first one I will call!

We were delighted! Chef Veronique MacRae, Exec Chef took care of everything. We were celebrating my Father-in-law's life. LTC John Burrer was laid to rest with his wife at Arlington National Cemetery on the 72nd anniversary of D-Day and LTC Burrer was a WWII and Korean War Veteran. We wanted a celebration of his life and food is a huge part of living. Chef Veronique was quick to understand what we wanted and she delivered. We had some idea about the number of guest we would have, but I was concerned that we would not know exactly how many could attend. Chef Veronique told me how she plans for events like this and she did not disappoint. We had plenty of food. Our service at Arlington started earlier then the scheduled time because we had all arrived early. So, that meant we returned to the Marriott Courtyard Rosslyn about an hour ahead of schedule. Chef Veronique had just started to set up when we showed up. She did not panic and continued to do her job in an expedited manner and had us ready to go in no time. There was a great variety of food for our guest to choose from. It was all very tasty and certainly exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend The Tasty Alternative. The food was great, the service was perfect, and the price was exceptional. Respectfully, Dennis L. Winston Salem, NC

Enjoyed a wonderful sampling of foods from this caterer. I had never tasted such delicacies as Boolanee before; what a treat! Chef Nasrin is as pleasant as she is talented and her food is everything you hope it will be and more.

Had the best experience with Aneva! Not only is she friendly and personable, but she REALLY listens! I love sweets, but struggle to eat deserts because I keep a vegan diet. I mentioned it briefly to Aneva upon first meeting her and without even asking, she surprised me several times with the most decadent sweet treats I've ever tasted. I honestly couldn't believe that it was vegan because the fudge brownies and cookies she baked tasted better than anything I've ever bought from a bakery. One thing I've noticed that sets Aneva apart from any other chef, is her attention to detail and her creative zest. Her cookies were moist and chewy and yet crunchy all at once. I didn't even know that was possible! She makes delicious dishes that carry through her passion for blending flavors and textures that will bring about a nostalgic feeling while also transporting you through a modern experience. I can't recommend her enough! You will leave the experience of having her meals with a strong craving to experience it again and again!

Brian, of Smoker' s Delight BBQ, was excellent to work with from the very start. He went above and beyond to make sure our special event was smooth! Now the food....friends and family are STILL talking about the food, and our event was 3 weeks ago! Delicious! I love how he does the prep. onsite--you get to see him throw down! The smells of the food cooking were amazing! Brian, my husband and I can't thank you enough! We look forward to working with you again!

Simply put, Chef Jackie Johnson is incredible. My wife and I along with another couple had Chef Jackie come to our home for a cooking lesson. Throughout the lesson, she was attentive toward all of us, gave us each individualized attention, and created an atmosphere that was engaging, fun, casual, and educational all at the same time. Her personality is very upbeat and you can tell in a matter of minutes that she is passionate about engaging and teaching others. As someone that is an above average cook, it was great to have Jackie teach me additional techniques and have a dialogue on cooking topics that I was most interested in. At the same time, the other couple were more novice in the kitchen, and she was easily able to shift how she spoke to make sure everyone could understand their task and reasons for the specific approach to cooking. Chef Jackie is authentic in her approach, provides excellent communication during the lesson, and gives you an experience that you will surely remember. Oh, and the came out fantastic. I highly recommend Chef Jackie to anyone in the Northern Virginia area who either wants to take a private lesson in their home, or wants to host a small dinner party and would like to have a chef prepare the meal in full. Thank you Chef for a wonderful experience, a great lesson, and empowering us to create great food!

Working with Anna was a pleasure! She adjusted to my dietary requests with true professionalism and checked in with me regularly before my event. The food was delicious! Perfectly seasoned and fulfilled all of my requests for the event. Her presentation was beautiful. She was punctual and true to her word at every stage. I would hire her again in a second!

I engaged Mary because I am recentlya retired man and, among my retirement goals, was to learn how to cook. Now, I can/could scramble some eggs or make some pancakes, and I could certainly microwave, but I couldn't do what i wanted: prepare my own meals in a way that would allow me to eat healthy and well. Even following a recipe was a challenge. Who know what it means to braise something, to parboil! Once Mary understood my goals, she prepared a tailored curriculum. She developed two-hour sessions in her kitchen, the better to get into a full meal preparation. There was a heavy emphasis on safety in the kitchen, from washing hands before handling certain items to proper chopping technique. A side benefit was that I got to take home a goodly portion of what we cooked. Our meals ranged from falafels to lasagna (of course, the pasta was homemade). It was great. After a series of 5-6 sessions, I developed the confidence to go out on my own, working from recipes to add to my repertoire. Mary does all sorts of specialized food preparation for those who have more specialty interests. I recommend her highly.

I am a single man with diabetes who was looking for healthy diabetic friendly meals to be delivered to my home. I found Iyea Brandy on Thumbtack and have been extremely satisfied with her services. The food she brings is delicious, and most importantly doesn't increase my blood sugar levels. Her prices are very reasonable and she makes an effort to tailor her services to the individual client. I was very impressed with her knowledge of food and nutrition.

I took Dorina’s Functional Home Cooking Course through the local adult school last fall. I have continued to take weekly classes since then. Dorina’s emphasis is on cooking quick, nutritious meals using wholesome ingredients. Her forte is Italian cooking but she has a broad knowledge of foods and other styles of cooking. Her classes are well organized. Topics touched on during class include the choice of ingredients, possible variations and substitutions, nutrition, tricks of the trade, and tips on where to shop. Dorina is friendly and engaging and her classes are informative and enjoyable. Her class is the perfect starting point for someone with little experience in cooking who wants to learn the basics. Her class would also be valuable for a person with some experience in the kitchen who wants to broaden their perspective.

Anna is absolutely amazing! She was our personal chef for a number of years until we moved out of the area. In that time, she made unbelievable meals for us that accommodated both dietary restrictions and food preferences. We also hired her to host a huge multi-course birthday dinner for my mother-in-law that was easily one of the best dinners we've ever had, all in the comfort and intimacy of our home. If you're looking for an amazing chef for any size meal or event, Anna is the go-to Chef!

We were guests at the Inn and had the opportunity to start our day with the most amazing breakfast and selections of pastries. What a lovely surprise when Chef Terry came into the dining room to meet with all the guests. He was personable, friendly, and made us feel at home... and the food was delectable!
