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 attended a cooking class for 5 taught by chef Jackie. She was a lot of fun to work with, encouraging, friendly, and even gave me a few cooking tips that weren't directly related to the class. The food was amazing and I can't wait to try these recipes on my own. I would recommend her cooking class for a fun learning experience!
I flew into town to plan my father's memorial. Mom wanted food delivered, set up, and kept tidy. We ordered from Wegman's and hired Chef Celestine. From the first contact with Sweet Bazil, staff were thorough professionals, confirming details and keeping phone appointments. Chef Celestine talked me through everything I should consider and I opted for her coffee tea station and sterno warmers, along with three extra hours of her day. At first I wondered what she would be doing the whole time, but was so glad I had Chef's helping hands. She washed and replenished, and repacked food, so that at the end, there was literally nothing for me to do! If I lived here, I would definitely find an event for her to actually cook for. But for our family gathering of 40, this Helping Hand service really lightened my load.
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!
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.
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!
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. : )
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!
Although Chericia was not able to actually do the cooking class, I could tell that she was organized and willing to do what needed to be done!
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.
Victoria was awesome!! Super friendly, professional and fun to cook with! We were able to get alot of cooking done and she was able to teach me diff techniques all while cooking some delicious meals for the week. Will def take more classes with her! Looking forward to learning more techniques , more delicious recipies and most importantly ways to make the most out of my groceries and not throwing them out because i ruined it. Highly recommend Victoria.
Donelles recipe for success in the kitchen is perfect: a deep knowledge of the science of cooking and baking that gives her the ability to be adaptable, a thorough understanding of the tools and gadgets of the trade so she can keep up with multiple steps of multiple recipes simultaneously, and a level of confidence that keeps her calm and in control from start to finish. The end result is home-cooked meals that seem like they came out of a high-end restaurant. My most recent experience with Donelle was when I hired her for a baking class at my home with myself and my team from work. Within just three hours, she taught us how to make three desserts. It was clear that Donelle had experience as a teacher, as she balanced her lecture with questions to the group that were fun and engaging, as well as stories about her experiences in the kitchen that helped us get to know her. We ended the afternoon full, more connected to each other (it is true that cooking classes are an opportunity for bonding!) and excited to try the recipes on our own all thanks to Donelles great teaching methods and familiarity with all-things-food.
Cooking classes are so much fun and Chef Dave...is very creative. I like their home chef event!

100% guest satisfaction.
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.
