Excellent service all around. Locally grown, and sourced in Lancaster county. Everything was either home cooked or prepared right in our kitchen. The chefs were professional and friendly. It was nice having them at our house. After diner they cleaned up the whole kitchen. Melissa said she enjoys researching any cuisine, so don't be afraid to ask for something exotic. Our dinner was for my wife's birthday, and included our immediate family. Everyone was very impressed. Our only wish was that we had more spacious stomachs. I highly recommend Stone Hill Catering and hope to have them over to prepare another special dinner.

We purchased this as a gift for our boss and he could not say enough good things about the experience with Chef Cindi. From the food to the service to the interaction being just right, it was an evening our boss thoroughly enjoyed! In fact, He liked it so much so that he's hired him back for another night. I will definitely recommend Chef Cini to others.

I love Brian and the crew at Dish and Design. They will work with your budget, no matter what it is, and they deliver delicious food! Their chicken salad cups are to die for! I highly recommend them for whatever your event - I've used them for several personal parties and had their food at a wedding, a gala event, and a non-profit party.

I have medical conditions that leave me exhausted after working 8 hour days. As a result, I would not have the energy to cook healthy meals. Our dinners included fast food, delivery or pre-packaged meals. When I found out that Traci, a friend of my sister, was in culinary school I approached her about becoming our personal chef and preparing 4-5 meals a week that are either ready to cook with minimal efforts or only needs to be reheated. In January 2015, we hired Traci as our personal chef. I provided Traci with some of our favorite recipes. A shared Pinterest board was also created to share online recipes. As my husband is a picky eater, finding recipes that he approves has been a challenge. Traci quickly learned acceptable foods and has been great about suggesting substitutions for recipes. After 2 months of working with Traci, I had to go on a low sodium diet. She had no problems modifying meals so they would be lower in sodium. Each week Traci prepares the next week’s meal plan by reviewing our approved recipes and requests for repeated meals. We review the meal plan and make changes as needed. Traci purchases the food while considering ingredients that she still has in stock. On the following day, she prepares the meals in her house. The meals are placed into glass dishes or covered disposable foil serving trays with copy of the recipes attached. After the meals are ready, I pick up them up at her house. The meals are then kept in the refrigerator (or the freezer) until I am ready to cook/heat it. We provide Traci feedback on each meal. Traci accepts our feedback well and takes into consideration our requests when making the meal again. The meals have been delicious and most have earned a rating of 5 out of 5 stars. The meals not receiving 5 stars were not a result of Traci’s meal preparation skills but due to the recipe, such as the seasonings. Prior to hiring Traci I was never fond of left-overs. Now I find myself excited to have left-overs. Traci has even gotten my husband to eat foods I never expected. My husband has eaten and really liked meals prepared by Traci that he did not like when made by myself or family. He has even eaten vegetables that he has refused to eat as he thought he didn’t like them. I highly recommend Traci Zammetti as a personal chef. Not only are our meals better tasting than I would make, but we are healthier as a result of the healthier meals and less stress in our lives.

When we first met to discuss what we wanted in a wedding cake you thought our selection of pumpkin spice with a French Buttercream filling off the wall and so did my Mom. However, instead of trying to talk us out of it, as she did, you accepted the challenge and delivered a fantastic cake. It was extremely moist and the pumpkin spice flavor was not over powering. Everyone raved about the cake and the ruins writing on each layer. Your cake had a place of honor in the alcove off the main hall on our wedding day. It fit in perfectly with the medieval location we selected for our wedding ceremony and reception. I highly recommend your pastries and cakes, without reservation, to anyone planning a wedding, party or other special event. There is nothing like custom pastries and cakes prepared by a chef willing to push the envelope of flavor and design. Wishing you the very best for continued success in your profession.

About

If you are looking for a place to meet friends for a casual dinner, celebrate an anniversary, impress a date, or just "hang out" and drink a beer and watch the game, then look no further. The Grill at Harryman House is just that place. We are a contemporary restaurant with critically acclaimed food one finds in a home in an early American home at The Grill at Harryman House. The home built in 1791 features a chestnut and oak log cabin, bright porches, and a spacious "great-room-style" dining room all of which is outfitted with timeless American furnishing, candlelight, fine china, silverware, and crystal. Traditional favorites are updated to satisfy today's educated palates and provide neighborhood regulars and discerning diners from nearby towns with abundant choices. Seasonal salads, fresh fish, Reisterstown's best burgers, brick-oven pizza, and Chesapeake Bay Oysters on the half shell make up a small part of the big menu offered. Paired with an award-winning wine list, marvelous cocktails prepared in an always busy pub-style bar, and our gracious and professional service, and you have one of Baltimore's best neighborhood restaurants delivering a world-class dining experience.

I provide not only recipes but also techniques and sourcing information for hard-to-find but key ingredients!
