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!
Chef Matt is incredible. We and our friends have used him 3 times and he is nothing short of a professional chef. The food is always delicious and he uses the freshest ingredients.
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.
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!
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.
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!
First of all, the food was absolutely divine -- what a burst of flavor. We were not looking for anything fancy or elegant (the event was a mini IT conference), and the #1 requirement I most desired was delicious food that everyone (including the folks in my field with a plethora of allergies or food preferences) could build for themselves, a la Chipotle-style eating. Not only did Chef Veronique and her associate Kerry come through, but they were incredibly professional, quick-thinking in the face of complications, and obviously put a lot of heart into their work -- from food to delivery and setup. They hit my budget right on target, and everyone (including an attendee who was pretty much allergic to most things) complimented the food all day. I couldn't be happier with them.
Stephanie was awesome. She came fully prepared, fully stocked and ready to handle any level of experience with our team. Our teambuilding event was truly delicious and successful. I would highly recommend using Chef Steph for any event!
We used their personal Chef service to have a romantic cadle light dinner. In one word: Amazing. The meal was Michelin Star worthy as the time and attention that went into every detail allowed my wife and I to totally relax having to do absolutely nothing. What also impressed me was the clean up. When they left, the kitchen was spick and spam clean. The experience was so good that we are already thinking about hiring them again for an upcoming Holliday party. And lastly, as anyone reading a review wants to know, the price was extremely fair, as they gave us choices to match the amount we were willing to pay; so we both had an incredible meal worth every penny for the price we paid. We highly recomend you choose Hautz Eatz!
Chef Nikki is WONDERFUL! The food is AMAZING!
We Used Chef BobbyD Catering Company for a work event. He was so awesome and helped us customize a BBQ menu and even provided doggie bags so our group could do a picnic. From Bandi to Chris, everyone was awesome and my teammates raved about the food. The price was very fair and the quality was fabulous.
The chef had very great communication in understanding what I was looking for. He made the hardest day the most smoothing running. Food was more then what I asked for he blew us away, creativity, taste & amazing plate set up...😱 WOW
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.
We were extremely pleased with Chefs Phillip and Antonia. I hired them to prepare a meal for eight of us in my home to celebrate my husband's birthday. Phillip was responsive to my emails and phone calls before the event as we planned the menu. Once at my house, Phillip and Antonia were very personable and accommodating to all eight of us. I was able to completely enjoy the evening and left all of the details to them. As discussed before the arrived, Phillip and Antonia cleaned up everything so that at the end of the night I didn't have any work to do. I highly recommend Antonia and Phillip Catering for your in- home catering event.
Joanna was a pleasure to work with. The food was delicious. The only unfortunate thing was how much was left over/went to waste. I would suggest cutting your number by 25% if you're going with heavy appetizers. I will use again for sure!
Chef terry is the best ever, smooth, nice and the food is the best. I will hire him and his crew any day. Thanks for making my school reunion a blast.
Melissa prepared a spectacular birthday dinner for my Mom's 60th birthday, everything was perfect and I'm so thankful to have had Melissa do something special and unique for my mom. Melissa was friendly and is a very skilled chef. Before the date of the dinner, we had a long conversation about food likes/dislikes and the flow of the menu. Melissa was amenable to whatever I suggested, and her menu for the dinner was creative and delicious. Melissa prepared a starter cheese plate which had two cheeses, Italian soda bread, fig spread and granny smith apple. So tasty! Our first course was a shaved brussel sprout salad with warm mustard and apricot vinaigrette. Oh my gosh--THAT was delicious. Our second course consisted of braised lamb shank with parmesan polenta and lots of herbs. Again, very creative and delicious. Melissa is so talented and very nice to be around. She prepped the food, cooked everything, and left the kitchen spotless when she left. She was timely when arriving, and had the courses served promptly and spaced out just right. I would highly suggest Melissa to anyone looking for a personal chef for a special occasion or to help plan and prep meals on a weekly basis.
