He catered my 40th birthday party , the food was great and the presentation was first class! Daniel is very maticulous and has such a passion for cooking . I would highly recommend him for any catering event , big or small.
I Was looking for something different for my wife and her sister during a visit. I saw A Private Affair on Living Social, offering a cooking class for 5. Since my wife loves to cook and her sister spent some time in culinary school I thought 'lets just give it a go." We ended up with 3 1/2 people making what turned out to be a fantastic meal - each of them taking responsibility for preparing a course under Chef Jackie's guidance and watchful eye. My grand niece made the salad (and Chef Jackie was great in keeping her on task and engaged); My wife did the potatoes au gratin; another friend did the pork chops and my sister-in-law made the chocolate moose. It was a lot of fun watching them but not as much as they seemed to be having. The menu options were great, the food was different and unique and everybody learned something new. Most importantly my stock went up for being the guy who gave his girl a cool and different gift. Pay attention gents! This one was worth it!
Chef Sunshine is a very knowlegble man. You will definitely like cooking more with his humorous style of teaching. I strongly recommend you book a class with him!
Ms. Sebastian was very professional and knowledgeable about the art of cooking. Our cooking session was very well organized. I had a great time learning new recipes and techniques. I will definitely take another 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!
I had Chef Danielle come into my home for a cooking lesson/dinner party for my husband's 40th birthday party. She arrived on time 1/2 hour before the class would start to set up and was there for about 4 hours. It was really easy working the menu and I was happy with the menu options she presented me and the ability to make more then one entre to satisfy the tastes of all the members of the group (8 adults). We all had a blast from those that cook on the regular, to those of us (me) that don't ever cook. I was expecting my kitchen to look like a total disaster after having had 8 adults cooking in my kitchen, but she cleaned up everything! The food was fantastic and I had left overs that we enjoyed days later. Thanks for a great time Chef Danielle!
Chef Eric Adjepong is in a different league when it coming to cooking. Most chef are just chefs. However, Chef Eric brings art, creativity, personality and class to cooking. He's always professional and gives the most detail to his work. His interaction with people takes his love for what does to another level!
All 40 dinner guests truly enjoyed Giovanni's culinary creations - each dish was perfection! And it could not have been easier for me as a host - Giovanni and his colleague Geoffrey took care of everything, cooking, plating, serving and cleaning up! I will definitely do this again!
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 thoroughly enjoyed my coooking class with Manjiri! She was fantastic at explaining and also demonstrating the cooking techniques. The recipes were easy to follow and I was able to recreate them at home easily. Best part was that the food was delicious!! My daughter and I love the flavors of Indian food and Manjiri's dishes were comparable to food cooked at a high quality restaurant. I highly recommend her cooking class, you will love her!!
Kim was wonderful! I hired her as a surprise chef for my husband's birthday dinner. The food was outstanding. She gave us some great cooking tips. She was professional, efficient and a delight. We will be having her come cook again!
Chef Ed is an absolute culinary wizard. I've been to a number of small events which he catered/cooked for and every time I was simply amazed by the sublime food. I've actually asked him to cater my upcoming wedding because of my previous experiences and am hoping my guests are just as blown away as I have been in the past.
FOODWAYS AND FOLKTALES by Vera Oye Yaa Anna In January 2008, Vera Oye Yaa Anna, presented a program for the African Section of the African and Middle Eastern Division of the Library of Congress entitled Foodways and Folklore. As a culinary Griot, Ms. Yaa Anna prepared a buffet meal of Garlic Collard Greens, Couscous, Jerk Turkey, Spinach and Cilantro and fried plantains, with Auntie Oye Pettit Rice Bread Muffins for dessert and a beverage of Alkaline tea, made with ph balanced water. The program was open to the public, and as it was held on a Saturday, many families came. Understandably, there were no left overs. The carefully and tastefully presented food was served alongside folktales and history about how these foods came to be, and the interconnection between Liberia, the native land of Yaa Anna, and the United States. She told the history of how freed slaves came back to Liberia with some influence of the times they spent in the United States. Later in the program, Yaa Anna told humorous, moral tales in the fashion of the Palaver Hut, a Liberian tradition where people hold discussions and tell stories. The three-hour program, which included time to eat the delicious food, time to hear the history of the food and time to hear amusing stories with some sage information embedded in them. Yaa Annas engaging story-telling, healthy and lovingly prepared gourmet dishes made for a fun and educational Saturday for the two dozen visitors, who then asked when are you going to do this again? We here at the Library of Congress would gladly extend the invitation again for this excellent program.
For Dorien, cooking is both an art and a science. He knows exactly how to expose you to new and improved ways to prepare and cook your meals, open up your taste buds to appreciate different flavors & textures by helping you understand the importance of layering, and elevates your thinking of healthy eating by introducing you to innovative ways to get rid of diet hurting cooking styles without sacrificing flavor and culture.

Not only can he service you in the kitchen but he helps you incorporate healthy eating habits, gives you tips for recipes and even makes you excited about everything he features or writes about (just to name a few) in his lifestyle blog and Instagram. He willingly adapts to your kitchen workspace and utensils without making you feel bad and he helps you learn new ways to utilize things that you already have or suggests things that you could use to improve your meal prep and cooking style.

I'll give you as fair and honest of a review as I can, but you should know I am Meetal's husband! Although I am biased, I cannot praise enough the cooking and teaching that Meetal is capable of. We have 2 young daughters, and the four or us are fed primarily by Meetal's fresh, healthy, tasty, and unique cooking. What amazes me most is how quickly she is able to do what she does. Like most families, we have a busy household with little time for grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning. Meetal has turned cooking for our family into an efficient art, something we share together and make time for because everyone loves it. If you have a family and want to eat healthy and delicious food at home that you create with your family, Meetal is the person to teach you. Meetal has a lot of experience with more complex cuisines and dishes as well. Her Indian food is highly sought after and she's taught many friends and adults how to approach cooking this cuisine. Daal, Indian spiced turkey meatballs, and other unique Indian dishes could be on your table soon. Meetal has been teaching kids and adults for a while. Expect a fun, lighthearted, and sometimes fast paced approach to cooking. Best of luck in your cooking adventures. I hope Meetal can help you along the way.
The class was great! I could not have asked for better.
First and Foremost!! Our Taste Buds said "WOW" with each course. Recently, I became a new Dad and being that this was my first Mother's Day gift to my Wife, I decided to take a unique approach. An approach to surprise my wife by bringing a Personal Chef into our home. I googled the internet and came across Thumbtack.com which graciously led me to several Personal Chefs. As I waded through the listings of Chefs and solicited several price quotes, Gourmet Chef Amer's responded in a timely manner. After a brief discussion and viewing Gourmet Chef Amer's website, I was sold. Eureka...I found my Personal Chef of choice. The price point for services are respectful and having a website that depicts an array of menus dishes with thoughtful and detailed descriptions is informative to potential patrons. Chef Amer was very well prepared and efficiently blended his cooking style to the logistics of my kitchen and dining room layout. Overall, the Customer Service was Great; the aroma and food was deliciously rewarding to our palates; did I say the Customer Service was GREAT; and most importantly, the Mother's Day surprise was a SUCCESS!

At every Tiny Chefs' party, class, camp, or special event, children learn how to measure, pour, mix, and stir, and use their creativity to create delicious eats. Our cooking classes are a great way to introduce children to the joy of cooking and baking. Kids show a sense of pride when they can make something with their own hands. The objective of each event is to enhance confidence, skills, and pride in each child as they prepare fun and tasty meals. Your tiny chefs will learn by doing as they are encouraged to explore their imagination and creativity while learning basic cooking skills and safety in the kitchen.
