Chef Kev was absolutely amazing. My event was a children's tea party. I hired Chef Kev at the last minute and he exceeded my expectations. He planned the meals for the event. There was something for the kids and something for the adults. He also set up the meal table to complement our theme/ decor. I will definitely use him again.

Chef Serge and his sous chef did a fantastic job preparing s three course dinner for an 80th birthday celebration for my mother-in-law. Our guests ranged in age from 4-86 and Chef Serge did a terrific job in helping us craft a menu that was pleasing to the wide range of palates present. He also brought plates and silverware for an additional fee which made everything so much simpler for us. The food was delicious. We had both fish and chicken available and both were cooked beautifully with the right amount of seasoning. He surprised us with an amuse bouche that left all of us looking forward to the rest of the meal. Chef Serge incorporated fresh seasonal ingredients into our meal. It was a blistering hot day so we all appreciated his use of summer fruit and vegetables. The ratatouille--was fabulous! We were particularly impressed by Chef Serge's friendly demeanor and how patient and engaged he was with the children. The kids really enjoyed watching the meal being prepared and had lots of questions to ask. Chef Serge and his souse chef answered them all and kept the children engaged. In the words of my nephew, "He's a great Chef!" We are so happy that we hired Chef Serge and Pure Kitchen Culinary Concept. We were able to relax and thoroughly enjoy ourselves and we hope to do it again soon.

My family and I hired Chef Serge to prepare a family dinner to celebrate some birthdays and anniversaries. He created menu options from which we chose and was so flexible with our requests. The meal was perfect - after a course of skelwers with tomato and cheese with a spicy sauce, we had a delicious salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, strawberries, mozzarella, basil, etc with mustard dressing. For the entree, he served the most amazing quinoa risotto on a bed of kale with veggies (in some secret sauce that was to die for) and a perfect filet of salmon on top. The meal was probably the best thing that ever has and ever will be served in my house! Also a perk? Not having to clean up after the meal - he does it all! Worth mentioning also is how very genuine, charming, and engaging Chef Serge is. At some point, each of us wandered into the kitchen and chatted with him. He was gracious and didn't seem to mind. We will definitely hire Chef Serge again and I recommend him highly to anyone looking for a private chef experience.

Chef Serge did an excellent job. He arrived on time and prepared a fabulous meal for me friend and I. He explained each course, the ingredients and how it was prepared. This was a private dinner in my home and we found his service and preparation of the food was exquisite. Excellent job Chef!!!

This was the first time I've used a service on Thumbtack. Heck, this was the first time I've had a personal chef prepare and cook a meal in my own home. Both were great experiences. Diane contacted me prior to our set date which was Valentines day. Her selection of meats and sides were amazing. I'm glad I took her recommendations. It's kind of like telling a painter how to paint... Some times you have to sit back and enjoy the beauty in what a professional plans for you. Diane, delivered a phenomenal meal and it was hands down the best Valentines day dinner my wife and I have ever had. Thank you so much Diane. I will be in touch next time I need your services.

Our experience with Chef Diane of RedFox Dinners was excellent. She was very communicative from the beginning with menu choices, dates/times, and all the other details leading up to the dinner. She was punctual, polite, and very efficient in preparing our meal. We confidently recommend her to anyone who is looking for an in home chef to prepare a scrumptious meal. I have recommended her already to a colleague and a neighbor. Thanks, Chef Diane!

I contracted with Matthew Wertman to prepare a "high end restaurant quality" meal for a dinner party for 10 that I was hosting at my home in Southern Maryland. Matthew put forward a great menu suggestion that I altered only slightly and was very responsive in setting up the dinner and working through logistics. On the evening of the meal --- right before Matthew arrived --- our oven failed. Matthew was undeterred and incredibly resourceful --- using our stove top and my outside grill to get the meal on without a hitch. He came fully prepared, worked quickly and without fuss, made the 3-course meal, served it to the guests and cleaned the kitchen before he left. Most importantly, the food was FANTASTIC --- exceeding all my expectations. I would highly recommend Matthew for such an occasion to anyone. Very easy to work with, very friendly and fairly priced. He made our event enjoyable, memorable and hassle-free.

Matthew did an amazing job with our Valentine's Day dinner for two. He was easy to talk to during the planning stages prior to coming over. He was really receptive to my ideas and was very accommodating with my additions and changes to his already awesome menu suggestions. Once here, he made quick work of the meal, and never rushed us. He was always prepared, but never once made us feel like we were in a hurry with the next course. He left my kitchen totally clean and spotless. We never felt as if he was intruding during a special evening, but instead, he just blended in. We are both self-proclaimed foodies and we thoroughly enjoyed his inventive take on our meal from start to finish. Don't hesitate to contact Matthew, you will feel like he's an old friend from the minute you start talking with him. We will certainly have him back very soon. No special event necessary. Just hire this guy.

Where do I begin? From his drinks to his service to his interaction with guests, Daniel was simply amazing. We hired him to elevate our holiday party with friends by having him bartend. From the first interaction over the phone, he was invested in our wants/needs, offered the utmost professionalism and even brought to the table some creative thinking for the party - ensuring we had the right flow for guests, etc. Daniel came out to our home ahead of the party to get a lay of the land and personally introduce himself, truly went above and beyond. On the day of the party, he arrived early to allow ample setup time. He even brought his own decor to add to the overall atmosphere. Throughout the night he made fantastic tasting drinks customized to our guests desires, kept everything immensely tidy and built a repoire with the guests that they were raving to us abou. Daniel was even thoughtful down to building a relationship with our 10mo th old puppy, Bruce. He brought him treats and played with him so Bruce became comfortable with having him in our home throughout the night. I cannot sing enough praises of Daniel and I can't wait to plan the next event so we can have him out again. His experience and professionalism were unparallel!! Highly highly recommend!! And happy to give a referral. Oh, and don't pass up his mojitos or orange crushes - they were the most popular drinks of the night. :)

JUST HIRE DANIEL! Where do I begin to describe the services provided by Daniel? He was PROFESSIONAL, COURTEOUS, HELPFUL and JUST GREAT He should give lessons in "BarTending with Excellent Customer Service." #VERY TASTY COCKTAILS #DELECTABLE MOCKTAILS Daniel visited the site a few days before hand to decide how he would set up his station. He took all the stress out of deciding what signature drinks we should serve, based on theme, budget, number of guests expected... He provided a list of what we would need to purchase based on scale of party. He hand makes fresh juices as mixers and sets up a thoughtful, first rate display. HIS SERVICE IS SECOND TO NONE He promised that he would arrive 2 hours before the event to set up and was here an extra hour EARLY. His input and assistance is invaluable. His interactions with our guest was what one would expect at a 7 Star Hotel or Restaurant; he was engaging and appropriate. Seriously, no one else should be a contender for your event. If you want to enjoy your event and have guests call you the following day to compliment the services provided by your bartender, who they have "Officially Adopted" USE THE SERVICES OF F&Btainment by Daniel

Daniel provided an outstanding service as a bar tender for our party of more than 100 people, all by himself. He came really early to settle down and make sure he was ready on time, brought a really good looking equipment (lights, black table clothes, all sort of great looking festive gadgets). And most of all, lots of fresh fruit juices and fresh fruit skewers (all home made!) to make the best cocktails ever! He paid attention to every detail, making sure that everything was perfect. He is super nice and friendly, all the guests appreciated him a lot. He stayed really late, left the place spotless, great job! I can only recommend him again and again! Way to go, Daniel!!! We will use your services next time, for sure!

Chef Chris Spear is in one word, amazing. If I didn't limit myself to one word, I'd also add in: incredible, talented, entertaining, knowledgeable, friendly, intelligent, thoughtful, creative, and brilliant. My wife and I just had our third son a month prior, and it was her birthday and we were not able to go out and celebrate due to the wonderful chaos of having a new little one tethered to mom. Chris was able to bring more than just the restaurant experience to us with this incredible service he provides. We learned new cooking techniques, flavor combinations, recipes that are easy for weekly meal making with little-to-no time, and more. As advertised, Chris brought everything: the ingredients, the dishes, the serving ware, the napkins and place settings; EVERYTHING. And then he took it all home with him. Chris spent almost a solid 5 hours with us and never made us feel rushed or hurried throughout the whole experience. He explained all his dishes, discussed the ingredients with us, gave us his perspective and thoughts on the dish, all while giving us stories about his own personal life and family and how he got to where he is today. He clearly loves what he does and it shows through on the food. My wife and I cannot wait to remake the dishes, and have already started looking at new cookware that Chris recommended. Chris even gave us links and recommendations for recipes that were not part of the meal experience we had signed up for. Chris clearly cares about the food and experience first, which is beyond refreshing and hopefully what helps set him above other chefs. We have told both of our entire families and friends about this experience and could not recommend Chris more. I hope people believe us and take the opportunity to have a similarly amazing experience with Chris. Ours was truly a great experience, and for that, the least we can do is say THANK YOU to Chef Chris!

This is the first time we had a chef come into our home and cook us dinner. It was a fun and fantastic experience. Chris was very friendly and shared a bit about his career as a chef and answered our questions, all while preparing the meal. He had several food choices that he needed to work around per the questionnaire we filled out before he decided on a menu. I was impressed with what he came up with. Chris showed up a little early to begin his meal preparations and explained how long the entrée would take, giving us up dates along the way. He asked us how we wanted our meat cooked and then cooked it to our specifications—perfectly. He set the table with dishes, silver-ware, place mats and napkins he brought with him. Then set out the “snacks” and salad we enjoyed while he prepared the meal. He shared with us how he prepared the foods we had not eaten before, a learning experience for us all. Everything he prepared looked good and was delicious. Once the meal was completed he cleaned up everything, leaving our kitchen as he found it. Chris certainly went above and beyond my expectations. I would recommend him to others.

Chris was wonderful to work with! He designed a menu for my Mom's birthday based on a profile I filled out for her, and let us stand with him in the kitchen asking him questions while he prepared our meal. It was an individualized, unique experience that I would recommend to anyone - whether it is for a date night, or for a group of your friends. Sometimes it's easy to run out of gift ideas, or date ideas, and Chris' unique Perfect Little Bites experience allowed us to give my mom a special gift that will carry on beyond that night. Chris provided us with recipes, and assured us that if we had questions after our evening together, he would be there to support and help us with any thoughts/questions we may have going forward. I can't recommend him and his business enough! Thanks, Chris!

Belinda was extremely professional, both in her culinary competency and her responsiveness to my many requests. I was out of town for mother's day weekend, leaving my wife alone with our two young daughters. To make up for this and provide a great mother's day gift I worked with Belinda to arrange for four dinner meals to be prepared on a single night. Belinda could not have done a better job. She worked hard to meet the picky dietary requirements of my children while also accommodating my wife's restricted diet. On top of that she put together a beautiful arrangement of flowers, managing to put create what my wife described as "the most beautiful arrangement" I had ever given her. It was just perfect. I highly recommend her.

I engaged Mary because I am recentlya retired man and, among my retirement goals, was to learn how to cook. Now, I can/could scramble some eggs or make some pancakes, and I could certainly microwave, but I couldn't do what i wanted: prepare my own meals in a way that would allow me to eat healthy and well. Even following a recipe was a challenge. Who know what it means to braise something, to parboil! Once Mary understood my goals, she prepared a tailored curriculum. She developed two-hour sessions in her kitchen, the better to get into a full meal preparation. There was a heavy emphasis on safety in the kitchen, from washing hands before handling certain items to proper chopping technique. A side benefit was that I got to take home a goodly portion of what we cooked. Our meals ranged from falafels to lasagna (of course, the pasta was homemade). It was great. After a series of 5-6 sessions, I developed the confidence to go out on my own, working from recipes to add to my repertoire. Mary does all sorts of specialized food preparation for those who have more specialty interests. I recommend her highly.

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!

Chef Green is a very professional, articulate and Ambitious Vegan Chef. She gave me one of the best catered events with imagery and tasty vegan meals that blew the audience away. From the presentation to the verbal conversation between myself and Chef Green and her interaction with the Audience was very pleasant and it reflected in the food because the food was very pleasant as Chef Green was. I would recommend Chef Green to every person that I know and I will always request Chef Green for any Catered Event that I am having.

Had the best experience with Aneva! Not only is she friendly and personable, but she REALLY listens! I love sweets, but struggle to eat deserts because I keep a vegan diet. I mentioned it briefly to Aneva upon first meeting her and without even asking, she surprised me several times with the most decadent sweet treats I've ever tasted. I honestly couldn't believe that it was vegan because the fudge brownies and cookies she baked tasted better than anything I've ever bought from a bakery. One thing I've noticed that sets Aneva apart from any other chef, is her attention to detail and her creative zest. Her cookies were moist and chewy and yet crunchy all at once. I didn't even know that was possible! She makes delicious dishes that carry through her passion for blending flavors and textures that will bring about a nostalgic feeling while also transporting you through a modern experience. I can't recommend her enough! You will leave the experience of having her meals with a strong craving to experience it again and again!

Veronique was an amazing chef and were couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. She cooked an abundant and highly flavorful meal for our family of 16. Her food was beyond my expectations. She even made a separate meal (from start to finish) for my daughter who doesn't eat meat. Her ingredients were well chosen and fresh. Her personality was pleasant and fun. She even allowed our kids to help her prepare the meal as a fun way to participate in the evening. She stayed much longer than I thought she might to make sure our meal was thorough and complete. And to top it off, she dealt with a challenging kitchen that might have left less skilled chefs floundering a bit.

Not enough good things to say about Iyea! We hired her for our cooking needs over a period of 5 days. Eight of us flew into Baltimore for a convention and rented a house. She was very flexible and responsive throughout the process. She came early in the morning to prepare breakfast. While we ate breakfast she prepared our lunches to-go, then returned again to prepare dinner. One of the nights we had a spontaneous party of 40, and she went to Costco and handled it like a champ!

We have a small office in Waynesboro where each year we get together to enjoy a small Christmas party complete with a Christmas dinner style luncheon. This year our budget was very strict so we were having a hard time finding a caterer and were thinking we would have to try and cook the meal ourselves and then bring it to work and try to keep it warm for lunch. and then I found thumbtack and through them we discovered the amazing Lil' Blue Cafe. Pamela came to us with her son and provided us with a delicious Christmas dinner style meal. The turkey and ham were so delicious and tender! The mashed potatoes and gravy were amazing! And my favorite was the mouthwatering macaroni and cheese! We were also treated with green beans, sweet potato with marshmallow topping and dinner rolls and cranberry relish. Everything was just so tasty that all of us are hoping and planning to invite her to cater again and again for next year. Thank you so much for being willing to come over the mountain and spoil us with your delicious cooking. Best.Christmas Party Meal. Ever!

Sandra Danzig demonstrated how to prepare Smoked Salmon Quiche and Winter Fruit Salad for our Senior Citizens group. Both the demonstration and the food were met with rave reviews! To begin, Sandra showed all of us how to make the perfect crust that would not dry out or become soggy. The quiche, which contained three different cheeses as well as smoked salmon and leeks, was savory and delicious without being heavy. The fruit salad of mango, blueberry, and ginger was the perfect compliment to the meal. In addition to learning how to prepare the quiche and fruit salad, we also learned how to clean and cut a leek and the proper way to hold a knife. All in all, we learned a lot and enjoyed a delicious meal too!

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!

Anna is a pleasure and her cooking is always delicious. We love that she is always experimenting with different types of cuisine and flavors for the dishes she makes us. Everything is always beautifully done even down to the way she plates our meals.

I took Dorina’s Functional Home Cooking Course through the local adult school last fall. I have continued to take weekly classes since then. Dorina’s emphasis is on cooking quick, nutritious meals using wholesome ingredients. Her forte is Italian cooking but she has a broad knowledge of foods and other styles of cooking. Her classes are well organized. Topics touched on during class include the choice of ingredients, possible variations and substitutions, nutrition, tricks of the trade, and tips on where to shop. Dorina is friendly and engaging and her classes are informative and enjoyable. Her class is the perfect starting point for someone with little experience in cooking who wants to learn the basics. Her class would also be valuable for a person with some experience in the kitchen who wants to broaden their perspective.

I hosted a group cooking class at my home with Chef Dorina. What a great time! There were 9 of us and everyone got involved everyone learned and the meal we made was amazing! The best part is Dorina teaches things in a way that makes it easy to learn and remember. I will be making the dishes I learned now on a regular basis! We have already set up another class for next month... we all can't wait! Thanks Dorina!
