Chef Kev was absolutely amazing. My event was a children's tea party. I hired Chef Kev at the last minute and he exceeded my expectations. He planned the meals for the event. There was something for the kids and something for the adults. He also set up the meal table to complement our theme/ decor. I will definitely use him again.
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.
The private chef dinner that we had prepared by Stone Hill Catering far exceeded our expectations. It was truly a wonderful experience that we would recommend to anyone. Melissa and her husband, Vernon, were tentative and accommodating. The food was absolutely fantastic!! We are already planning a repeat event next year.
What an amazing evening....really a 15 out of 10. Matt is a charming host (in your own home). I gave him one ingredient (lobstah' from Maine sent by a friend)....just based on that Matt proposed a brilliant menu that I did not change at all - though I am sure I could.....more importantly the evening was magical...wow..why did I wait so long to do this!!!! His leftovers today by the way was one of the best meals ever!!
Chris was wonderful to work with! He designed a menu for my Mom's birthday based on a profile I filled out for her, and let us stand with him in the kitchen asking him questions while he prepared our meal. It was an individualized, unique experience that I would recommend to anyone - whether it is for a date night, or for a group of your friends. Sometimes it's easy to run out of gift ideas, or date ideas, and Chris' unique Perfect Little Bites experience allowed us to give my mom a special gift that will carry on beyond that night. Chris provided us with recipes, and assured us that if we had questions after our evening together, he would be there to support and help us with any thoughts/questions we may have going forward. I can't recommend him and his business enough! Thanks, Chris!
I highly recommend Shore is Delicious, Catering by Teresa. I contracted with Teresa to cater an after (Wedding) reception party at my house in Gambrills. Teresa was extremely helpful in helping me decide what menu would be appropriate, providing suggestions and alternatives during the planning process. Teresa was very easy to get a hold of when needed, and responded with the answers to my questions very quickly. A majority of the food that Teresa served to my 65 guests was hand made, and it was absolutely delicious! Teresa's cooking skills and ability to create a balanced menu were impressive. Teresa and her crew were on time, and had the area set-up and ready to go by the time my guests started to arrive after the wedding reception. She went out of her way by providing tasteful table coverings and center pieces, even thought I did not ask for those. The quality of her work was excellent! Aside from the delicious food, the most impressive attribute of Teresa's catering service was their willingness to provide the "Complete Service." Teresa prepared all of the food, delivered it, served it and stayed until the end, making sure that the area was 100% clean and in order before she left. In addition, Teresa brought along a crew of helpers that provided anything that was needed to ensure that my guests had a good time. When researching for caterers, this was tough to find. Most wanted to make the food, put it on the tables and go. Not Teresa. In closing, I highly recommend and without reservation Shore is Delicious, Catering by Teresa for anyone's catered event. The planning, preparation and care taken by Teresa and her crew was fabulous. Tom Doyle
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!
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.
As a single male who can't cook and has no time to do so properly, my diet has suffered due to years of compromising meals like pizza and takeout Chinese, etc. Therefore I cannot tell you how happy I am about Scott and the service he provides. I save money over eating out and delivery and the food Scott makes is immeasurably better, healthier and prepared by an obviously talented chef. The food is amazing; the ingredients are fresh and clearly chosen with care; Scott is charming and delivers it to you direct. It's pretty great and highly recommended.
PHG personnel where very professional and helpful from the get go. Candi, who set up the reservation for us, was understanding and very helpful to meeting our needs. The delivery was punctual. The food was great and everyone at the office party enjoyed the meal with complements that a great caterer was selected and a job well done. I wasn't to thank the PHG team for their service to DC Water and look forward to more opportunities with PHG. God bless PHG and may He grow their company beyond borders in Jesus name, amen.
Not enough good things to say about Iyea! We hired her for our cooking needs over a period of 5 days. Eight of us flew into Baltimore for a convention and rented a house. She was very flexible and responsive throughout the process. She came early in the morning to prepare breakfast. While we ate breakfast she prepared our lunches to-go, then returned again to prepare dinner. One of the nights we had a spontaneous party of 40, and she went to Costco and handled it like a champ! She did all our shopping and majority of the clean-up as well. Her prices are incredible reasonable and her food was delicious, she has the home cooked family feel in her cooking. Thank you Iyea for feeding our souls :)
Lynn is a pleasure to work with. As a nutrition coach I needed meals that met specific nutritional criteria, contained a wide variety of foods and cooking methods. Lynn met and exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend!
I had the opportunity to eat a few meals on different occasions from The Tasty Alternative. An absolute treat to the palate. The chef created healthy and creative dishes that left me wanting more! I highly recommend The Tasty Alternative!
Chef Riley prepared a beautiful meal for my wife's birthday. Our whole family was so impressed with the dishes. The portions were also very hearty, which was good. I highly recommend her for your dining needs!
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!
Wow. What a great evening. At first it was a bit weird to be sitting doing nothing while someone else does all the work but it was great to be able to hang with our friends and just relax. Sandra cooked an incredible meal and could not be more professional. It was our first time using her services and we will definitely use her again. Thank you Sandra. We had such a great night and you made it that way.
We are a couple who wanted flavorful and diverse meals that are home style cooked. Barbara delivered the 5 separate main dishes and vegetable sides, split in half, packaged and labeled for our freezer. We will be placing another order with her.
Chef Nikki is the BOMB.COM!! She and her husband Paul are excellent in the kitchen and on the grill... She can cook for me and my husband every day if she wants too, we will never turn her down...😂😂😘😘 Every meal is excellent and tasteful down to the deserts... Nikki is very clean and sanitary, you don't have to worry... She takes her business and license very serious... I definitely recommend her for your next meal, your next desert or your next catering event.
I've been lucky enough to have more than one cooked meal by Taheerah. Her breadth of knowledge doesn't stop at what just tastes good. Taheerah also places a great deal of value in nutrition—not only preparing meals but educating on the choices behind the ingredients. She has the ability to cook for large groups, but also prepare meals for a more intimate setting. It's really fun to watch her work in the kitchen! Taheerah's training and skills are evident as she moves from prep to plate without ever missing a beat. I recommend Taheerah to anyone who likes delicious food. Try the pizza!
To any and all prospective clients: It is my great pleasure to present Ms. Rahwa as a candidate for personal in home meal service. Rahwa has worked here as a breakfast chef and planner for six months. A true professional in planning, preparation and presentation of meals, Rahwa is a lovely, gentle soul who brings warmth and care to my kitchen each morning. I believe she has created a unique in-home service that can be customized to any individual's nutritional requirements. Her vast knowledge about nutrition and her intuitive understanding of flavor/texture inteeractions combine to create a truly delightful, multi- varied menu. In short, she is a gifted chef with limitless potential and true caring for her clinets and our specific needs. It has been an honor to have Ms. Rahwa in my home, my kitchen, and my heart. A culinary dynamo with much integrity and determination, Rahwa has already earned all five stars as a five star chef. I can recommend her as an in-home meal service practitioner without hesitation. Thank you for your time and attention. Isabelle Chester, January 21, 2018.
