I hired Robert Rovegno to plan the menu and cater appetizers for a 50th birthday party. The guest list was nearly 80 persons, and the budget was modest. He asked if I had a preference of food from one country or another and when I didn't, he surprised me by creating items from 5 continents. The food that came out of his kitchen was the most delicious, the most beautifully presented, collection of appetizers and dessert items I or any of my guests had ever experienced. He was impeccably dressed in crisp chef's attire, as were his helpers, and they kept the food table full and the circulating platters coming throughout the evening. He and his crew handled the clean-up quickly and efficiently. Since then, I have ordered his beautiful boxes of handmade chocolates, candied fruit and cookies every Christmas and Valentines Day for friends, family and business associates--and of course myself. I email him a list of recipients and their addresses and they always arrive on time. Not only is the variety and quality of the items to-die-for, but the tins themselves are works of art, custom-designed for him by an artist. Though most recipients rave about the quality and variety of the sweets, I have had a few who complained that once they opened the tin and tasted one item they were unable to stop themselves from finishing everything in one sitting. Robert has a wealth of knowledge about food from different regions, social classes and historical eras and to listen to him describe a dish is an educational experience. I can't recommend Robert Rovegno enough: he's professional, reliable and a great culinary artist.

I am more than happy to recommend chef Tim for your catering event. He catered a party for me for 30 people. Tim has a flair for putting ingredients together to come up with a tasty new recipe or an interesting twist on an old one. He was prepared and organized and, most important, he has a great attitude. Working with him was easy and enjoyable from start to finish. His wait staff was professional and accommodating. I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.

Amanda and the entire AK Catering staff were ACES. Their menus are unique and versatile while also being familiar and comfortable. Everything was fresh, beautiful and delicious. I simply was the hero of my party and I barely had to lift a finger. AK Catering took care of everything. The prices are incredible and the overall service and experience was amazing. I can't wait to have another event just to book them. I am already planning on a some personal chef experiences!

Daniela is a wonderful classically trained chef. Daniela has ability to work in any kitchen from a four star restaurant in D.C. to an Elk Hunting camp in New Mexico. What she brings to each and every event is solid experience and flexibility. Whether preparing and plating a dinner for six using local farm to table ingredients, or teaching a complex recipe to a novice cook, Daniela is patient, warm and a pleasure to be around. I will continue to use Daniela for future events and am always thinking of new ways to enjoy her skills. Did I mention that she is a nutritionist with a flare for creative ingredient replacement? What that translates to is her gift for making cherished dishes with ingredients that are better for her clients.
