I wanted to give my son an in-home cooking class certificate for his birthday. Chef Matt had one emailed to me within an hour of our arrangement. Because I was going to have my son and his wife over for lunch so I could give him the certificate, it occurred to me that I would have Chef Matt cater the lunch so my son and I would know in advance what capability Chef Matt provided. Within three days I had a menu in hand with a selection of 3 appetizers, 3 main courses, and 3 deserts. Matt personally brought my selection to my home, over 20 miles away, but he added Rosemary bread and two extra small gifts, his own bread and butter pickles and spicy peach ketchup. Matt was at my home at the exact time we had agreed upon and provided me with perfect instructions for heating the meal prior to serving. The meal was without doubt superb. It was the first time my sons and their wives actually went back for seconds. Chef Matt had cooked as directed for 6 but I had left overs for two more meals. As far as the price is concerned it can't be beat. I really didn't have to do anything but enjoy my time with my family. I highly recommend Chef Matt and know as long as you communicate your specific needs he will exceed them. I will certainly be using him again. Thank you so very much Chef Matt.

Jackie's in-home private cooking lesson was terrific - she is a talented chef and she truly enjoyed showing us how to make the meal ourselves. The food was delicious, and we had a wonderful time. Thank you, Jackie!

I flew into town to plan my father's memorial. Mom wanted food delivered, set up, and kept tidy. We ordered from Wegman's and hired Chef Celestine. From the first contact with Sweet Bazil, staff were thorough professionals, confirming details and keeping phone appointments. Chef Celestine talked me through everything I should consider and I opted for her coffee tea station and sterno warmers, along with three extra hours of her day. At first I wondered what she would be doing the whole time, but was so glad I had Chef's helping hands. She washed and replenished, and repacked food, so that at the end, there was literally nothing for me to do! If I lived here, I would definitely find an event for her to actually cook for. But for our family gathering of 40, this Helping Hand service really lightened my load.

The cooking lesson was for my teen daughter. Mary was very accommodating. She was well prepared and very professional. She taught my daughter with patience and she made it fun for her. She taught her terminology and safety, as well as helped her to create a wonderful meal. My daughter will continue taking culinary classes with Mary and I would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.

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!

As an educator, Chef Julian is outstanding, particularly with regards to excellence, creativity, discipline and adherence to historical and traditional cooking. Chef relates to young people exceptionally well and conveys, and expects an extremely high standard for dignity, respect and excellence both in and out of the kitchen, As a chef, Julian creates truly exceptional culinary creations that are well founded in traditional American cooking but at the same time are modern, creative and innovative.

Kristin has been providing meals for my family for the past 3 years. Typically, I will order twice a week and it has made my life so much easier to come home from work and have a hot meal already prepared. Her menu changes weekly and the variety is impressive. If I need her to use brown rice instead of white, or if I would like extra spinach, it is never an issue. Her meals are always on time and delicious. I have recommended her to many friends. I have also been to a few cooking classes that Kristin has held at her home and was able to come away with easy recipes that require little time in the kitchen. Her attention to detail is extremely important to her and you can tell from the meals she provides to the cooking classes she hosts. The only thing that would improve the service is if she delivered. : )

Manjiri was amazing! I wanted to do something new and fun for my guy friend and it was his birthday. I reached out to a few different vegan chiefs and they were either only doing classes on the weekends or the classes were full. I insisted that we do this ON HIS BIRTHDAY, which was on a Wednesday. Manjiri didn’t tell me no. She was all for it! Though i live 55mins away it was very much worth it. I loved the fact that it was one on one with her. No other couples, no distractions! She had everything set up. All we had to bring was ourselves and containers. She explained everything before we started to prepare after that It was all hands on. She even had the recipes typed up for us! It was fun and new! The food was DELICIOUS!!!! Manjiri is very professional but she laughed with us and made us feel comfortable. He loved his surprise private cooking lesson. Thank you so much Manjiri. We appreciate everything

I'll give you as fair and honest of a review as I can, but you should know I am Meetal's husband! Although I am biased, I cannot praise enough the cooking and teaching that Meetal is capable of. We have 2 young daughters, and the four or us are fed primarily by Meetal's fresh, healthy, tasty, and unique cooking. What amazes me most is how quickly she is able to do what she does. Like most families, we have a busy household with little time for grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning. Meetal has turned cooking for our family into an efficient art, something we share together and make time for because everyone loves it. If you have a family and want to eat healthy and delicious food at home that you create with your family, Meetal is the person to teach you. Meetal has a lot of experience with more complex cuisines and dishes as well. Her Indian food is highly sought after and she's taught many friends and adults how to approach cooking this cuisine. Daal, Indian spiced turkey meatballs, and other unique Indian dishes could be on your table soon. Meetal has been teaching kids and adults for a while. Expect a fun, lighthearted, and sometimes fast paced approach to cooking. Best of luck in your cooking adventures. I hope Meetal can help you along the way.

I am so excited about learning how to cook with Ellen. She is very professional and kind. During our consultation she asked me what I'd really like to learn and what things I didn't or couldn't have. She is willing to work her class set up around that as well. She has a great attitude and gives me hope that I'll be a great cook.
