This is the first time we had a chef come into our home and cook us dinner. It was a fun and fantastic experience. Chris was very friendly and shared a bit about his career as a chef and answered our questions, all while preparing the meal. He had several food choices that he needed to work around per the questionnaire we filled out before he decided on a menu. I was impressed with what he came up with. Chris showed up a little early to begin his meal preparations and explained how long the entrée would take, giving us up dates along the way. He asked us how we wanted our meat cooked and then cooked it to our specificationsperfectly. He set the table with dishes, silver-ware, place mats and napkins he brought with him. Then set out the snacks and salad we enjoyed while he prepared the meal. He shared with us how he prepared the foods we had not eaten before, a learning experience for us all. Everything he prepared looked good and was delicious. Once the meal was completed he cleaned up everything, leaving our kitchen as he found it. Chris certainly went above and beyond my expectations. I would recommend him to others.
Barbara visited the home of our friends to prepare a wonderful meal as our Christmas gift to them. Barbara was great! She took the time to learn about our friends, confirm their likes/dislikes, food allergies, etc., and welcomed my feedback on the menu. Our friends had nothing but positive (actually glowing) comments about the experience and rate this as one of the best gifts they've ever received. We are so happy with Barbara that we've already booked another engagement for relatives.
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!
If you want 5 star food RoxyB’s Catering is definitely for you. She is absolutely an amazing cook. Her food never lets me down no matter what dish she cooks. I’ve had her food on various occasions and loved it so much decided to have her cook weekly for our family! I wouldn’t go anywhere else. If your looking for value and beyond fantastic food book her now! Thank you for all your hard work and I look forward to many more meals!!!
I often eat at Mali Thai. The food is great and the staff are friendly and professional. I had the opportunity last year to have a party of 20 at Mali Thai. Pong Aerjaipra, the owner provided us with plate after plate of delicious Thai cuisine. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening. On a separate occasion Pong invited my wife and me to a class on how to make sushi. It was a great experience and we had a great time. I highly recommend this restaurant for a casual lunch, a dinner out with friends and family, or a small dining event up to about 20 people. You won't be disappointed.
We could not have been more pleased with the dinner Colin put together for our 12 person wedding. He took the time to come meet with us beforehand to discuss the menu options; made recommendations and collaborated with us until it was just what we wanted, and was flexible with our last minute changes. He arrived early with all of the necessary equipment. He prepared all of the food from scratch and was more than friendly as he interacted with everyone - despite the fact he was simultaneously (and perfectly) timing up multiple dishes all to be laid out at intervals we worked out beforehand. He came dressed professionally in a chef's uniform, actively sought any direction he needed, then was able to operate entirely self-sufficiently in a completely new kitchen with a questionable grill situation and our 2 massive puppies keeping him locked in the prep space. The server he brought with him was professionally dressed and composed and was highly responsive to our party's needs. They completely handled cleanup, and managed to meticulously clean our nearly 100 year old wedding china under the overly-scrutinizing glare of the mother/grandmother-inlaws. In addition to his general professionalism and endearing demeanor, the food was fresh, flavorful, and perfectly cooked - simply delicious. Appetizers - (Finger foods on serving platters) Mini Crab Cakes - tartar/cocktail sauce Mini Meat Balls - marinara sauce Charcuterie Platter - meat, cheese, olives, peppers Veggie Tray Dinner - (Family Style) Rolls with Butter Garden Salad Grilled Asparagus Mediterranean Grain Salad - Citrus Herb Vinaigrette Citrus Terragon Kebab Chicken Whole Beef Tenderloin - dry rubbed and grilled, sliced to serve We couldn't recommend Colin more highly.
I hosted a small sit down family dinner party. Chef Carlos Mac prepared a complete meal including appetizers, entree and dessert. The highlight was a roast pork loin stuffed with fruits & nuts and served with fresh roasted vegetables and a balsamic/honey reduction. Everything was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend Chef Carlos Mac.
What a wonderful place! Everything is great - the service and friendliness cannot be beat! Fresh everything at so reasonable prices! Their combination of highest quality ingredients, complete professionalism in preparation, and really reasonable prices is unique. The service is amazing. The owners truly care about their customers. They are friendly and so kind. They have a variety of European desserts for about $3 each. My personal favorites are Amandine (rum/caramel soaked chocolate nut sponge cakes), Savarina (baba au rum) and Cremsnit (a delicious kind of mille-feuille). Definitely worth visiting! You will love it and you will keep coming back again and again!
I cannot say enough great things about Chef Maria! Her food is excellent, her personality is the best, and overall I simply love having her here preparing our family meals that last us the entire month once we portion them out and freeze them! Gypsy Soul Mobile Cafe has been a real time and money saver for our family. People do not know how much value will be added back to their lives (in time and money) until they use Chef Maria's services once. Our family eats out less, time is added back to our evenings, and not to mention I am less stressed from not having to figure out what is for dinner! All of our four children love Chef Maria's meals. I like that she can help us plan healthy meals that each of our six family members will eat. Give her services a try- you will not be disappointed!
My experience with Marie Florence Catering was nothing short of fantastic. Vanessa and Nathalie were a joy to have in my home, and their cooking was absolutely delicious. They were attentive to the details of the meal, engaged me the entire time, and even put up with my dog who begged for them to drop something the entire time :) They brought everything they needed and cleaned up my space before leaving. Each bite of food was more delicious than the last, and I would love to work with them again. I would recommend them to anyone who has catering needs in the DC Metro area! Thanks again ladies!
Jeremy and his crew catered my wedding in October. He was very open to the ideas I had but also came to the table willing to share his own professional opinion. I really appreciated his kindness throughout the planning process. The meal that was prepared was very good and was pleasing to the eye as well. All of the services that he provided were at a reasonable price. Jeremy is also a man of great character, it was nice working with him.
Excellent home cooked meals at an affordable rate. Just like part of the family at my reunion. Will definitely be using them in the future.
Grub studio prepares some of the best food I’ve ever had. All their meals are cooked to perfection. Ava is an amazing chef.
I took Dorinas Functional Home Cooking Course through the local adult school last fall. I have continued to take weekly classes since then. Dorinas 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.
Chef at Your Door catered a major showroom opening for Dedon, Inc. in Washington, DC. Chef Thomas prepared & plated the perfect appetizers for the event as well as a signature beverage. The quality of food was exceptional. He and his team were professional, courteous and on point with their service. I would highly recommend Chef at Your Door for any special event.
Fantastic experience all around....taste, value, timeliness, friendliness, and flexibility…all great. From the beginning, Chef Amberly communicated well about our meal choice and even made a suggestion that I hadn't thought to ask for, coq au vin! She brought all the ingredients, her knives, and a few other kitchen utensils that I didn't recognize. The only thing she needed from us was a pan or two which she washed when she was done (thank you!) and our stove of course. Taste is probably the most important part and it was fantastic! It was beyond restaurant quality and the ingredients were much fresher. They had been procured an hour before they were cooked, not days like in a restaurant. Personality might not be important to some people but it is for me. I need to like the people I hire and Chef Amberly was great. She could probably do a cooking show. She even wore her chef's jacket which I thought was a nice touch. Dinner was ready when she said it would be. And she left great reheating instructions for us. I just hope she doesn't find out that we used the microwave the next day (whoops). Value. It's not just about saving you the work. It's an EXPERT saving you the work. It would be like hiring the groundskeeper at Camden Yards to care for your lawn. He's going to do it WAY better than you are.
Chef Diane is a great chef and teacher with lots of experience. I found the class to be very enjoyable and the atmosphere and meal we prepared was great!! I learned more and enjoyed myself much more than I thought I would.
Great service and tasty meals!
Professional service and outstanding fresh food. Each meal I've had was skillfully made with a lot of love put into it.
