Love the food !!! Chef Kev has me eating meals I never thought I would enjoy or eat. Love the new eating healthly thing. Everything is portioned well and very tasty. I would highly recommend to anyone.
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!
How do you plan a reception for 500-600 people where approximately 200 of them are famished teenagers or preteens? The answer: you contact Esther Marandure, Executive Chef, of the Epicurean Nutrition Catering Company. Ester, thank you, thank you, thank you all for the wonderful work you did to make the reception after the Northern Virginia Youth Winds December Concert a smashing success. I cannot tell you how many people have said this was one of the best receptions they had been to. The food was excellent and beautifully presented as I knew it would be after attending the tasting. Many people remarked how wonderful it was. The staff was also so delightful to work with, all very friendly and attentive. Please make certain that they all know how much they were appreciated.

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.
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 Nasrin's professionalism, food quality and presence in our house makes a difference between an easy and a hard week. Fresh ingredients, bold flavors and a clean kitchen when she leaves = homerun!
My company had their annual health fair and we hired Chef Iyea to do the cooking demonstrations. She was so helpful through out the menu planning process and very delightful to work with. Our staff loved her energy and recipes. I would highly recommend her!
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.
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!
Excellent customer service and great food! I contacted Chef Nikki because I wanted to reduce the amount of fast food my family was eating. She suggested prepared meals and quickly provided a menu of healthy meals for me to select from. The food was delicious, the portion sizes were generous, and everything was professionally packaged. Because of Chef Nikki I can serve home cooked meals that are as convenient as fast food. I will continue to hire her.
Awesome CHEF would put it mildly! You are the best at what you do! Your food is ALWAYS indescribably DELICIOUS!👍🏽 Friends are still talking about the great job you did in preparing the menu for the private party you did for me and my daughter. As the CEO of a company, I have had the pleasure of eating foods prepared by different chefs... CHEF JULIAN IS ONE OF THE BEST.
I hired Chef Darryl for an intimate birthday dinner for ten (10). We had a wonderful time! He served a great meal that we discussed before finalized. His team was very professional and courteous. But he will not give you his secrets to Chilean Sea Bass. ;)
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.
Ace culinary was on time and was very helpful to my guests. I would hire Ace again with no doubts.
Chef Daud, is a great business owner. His response time is great and provides super competitive prices. I have used this catering company at least 25 times already for this year alone (2018). I'm an event planner.
My services include weekly and daily meal planning, personal chef on demand, events and catering. I am able to give you exceptional service and make your experience memorable.
