Private chef for a wedding/baby shower for a client with special food requests (Autoimmune Paleo Diet). Chef was eager to work with food restrictions and had a fantastic attitude. Guests loved the food and raved about their interactions with the chef. Would hire again in a heartbeat.

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!

Chris was a fabulous find and worked to make our very last minute birthday celebration with friends a special and memorable event. Working within my budget, and keeping in mind a guest list of a dozen friends and about as many palates and dietary restrictions, Chris presented a phenomenal menu of easy to make, yet impressive appetizers for us. For our event, he then led us through the how-to's of each dish, teaching us how to create each masterpiece in a fun, laid back atmosphere. He arrived early with everything (literally everything including plates, cleaning supplies and serving dishes...he even had his own cooler since our fridge was full of wines for the party!), kept pace with our boisterous crowd and cleaned it all away so we had nothing but fun and friends to occupy our time. In the future I'd spend more time discussing my interests in pairing each of Chris' dishes with a specific wine selection and how that would roll out as that piece of the evening ended up being more of an after thought than I'd originally wanted due to my lack of communication, but overall we wouldn't have changed a thing as Chris helped make our birthday event an evening we won't soon forget. He graciously shared his tricks of the trade with us, accommodated 12 people (and a dog!) in a relatively small space and even kindly engaged our curmudgeon neighbor as he was leaving which was far and above his call of duty. Chris is truly a consummate gentleman, a master of his craft and a joy to work with. Definitely would hire Chris 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!

Ashley completed the first cooking course with my son Louis Jr. She is a very professional chef with all the credentials. She is the real deal! She arrives before time, she has all of the supplies, etc. I like the way she communicates with my son who has autism. She is very respectful. Her wording is clear and understandable. Usually I have to coach a person a lot before they are able to communicate well with my son. She is reasonably priced and the food was amazing tasty beyond my expectations. I would like Ashley to cook for my other group events as well. This was my first experience using Thumbtack and it was a winner!!

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.

Chef Niki catered my promotion dinner at my firehouse. I appreciated how I was able to view and sign the contract online and pay through a cash app. However, I was surprised to pay in full prior to delivery of service but I admit to being naive about the process of catering an event. Nikki was fair in price. The amount of food was very generous. The food was delish and the guys are still talking about how tasty it was. I only gave four and not five stars due to the late arrival of food. (40mins after agreed time.) Overall, I would recommend Chef Nikki to cater future events.

Drop off catering job for 35 people. Went very smoothly. Almost better. I didn't expect her to be so warm and welcoming. The job definitely got done above expectations. I will definitely hire again for future evnts. The menu chef planned for us was perfect, fit in with the theme, and was actually pretty healthy. It was delicious and plated beautifully. I appreciate the hard work she put into my event and definitely recommend her for any catering or chef needs.

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!

Sandra is the best chef I have ever experienced. Everything about the event FAR exceeded my expectations. She added special touches such as a printed menu, ice cubes with edible flowers inside, had her staff take pictures. I will never consider another caterer ever again. Pure perfection!

Chef Candace was absolutely amazing. Very responsive in communication in which she creatively designed a menu that was tailored to my needs and desires. The food was absolutely incredible and well seasoned. With each bite my taste buds began to celebrate! She set the mood with fabulous music, fresh roses and candles. The presentation from beginning to end was professional and beautiful. She made my wife’s birthday one to remember! I will be utilizing her private chef services again in the very near future! Thank you Candace for being so sweet and kind. You are amazing!

Suzanne from Food Matters has been our Godsend. We were tired of eating out and our diets had to change due too a few circumstances. She is reliable and so easy to work with. We always have some good laughs too. She is also very knowledgeable about pairing foods to together. We consider ourselves very lucky to have found Food Matters to prepare our dinners weekly. She has also catered an event for our daughter and it was a hit. She is a must for all of your catering needs. Love her!!!

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!

It is my pleasure to offer this recommendation to Chef Ronald Cager Jr. I had the fortune to employ him for a romantic “Just Because” dinner for my husband and I. He and his business associate worked with me to understand my preferences. My expectations were achieved in taste and presentation. Chef Cager’s client centered approach was greatly appreciated. It is my sincerest hope to palate his future creations and cuisines. Until that time presents itself, I wish him much success.
