Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I'm Chef Rashida and while I have been a little bit of everywhere, I'm now living and based out of Stafford, Virginia. I am a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY and have over 9 years of experience in my field, serving a variety of dishes and clientele, from pan-seared duck breast at country clubs and resorts to pan-fried chicken at the kitchen table. We all love to eat, but don't always have the time or energy to cook the way we'd like. That's where I come in. I offer private cheffing, personal shopping, meal planning, small event catering and more. For meal prep each week's menu reflects the seasonal market; food that is fresh, nutritious and delicious. Let me cook simple, home-cooked meals to suit your needs and palate. I’ve found that taste buds speak louder than words. So, drop a line and give me a chance to put my food where your mouth is!

Rashida is AMAZING! Her meals were healthy, full of flavor and diverse. She cooked weekly meals for me for about 3 months and I never had one complaint. My coworkers were jealous every time I had one of her meals for lunch. I only lived in the area for a short amount of time but my favorite thing about living there was Rashida's cooking.

Details: Regular meal • 1 guest • Dinner • Standard (basic ingredients) • American - casual • Meal delivered • A few times per week • I travel to the personal chef • The personal chef travels to me

Chef Rashida presented herself as a professional and maintained control of her creativity throughout the evening. She was well prepared and organized for the entire process. Everything was delicious.. Mac n cheese, collard greens, BBQ n baked chickens, mashed sweet potatoes and baked Salmon.. Topped off by a baked lemony apple dessert served with ice-cream. Thank you.

Chef Rashida is absolutely amazing. She catered my sisters graduation dinner and the food was delicious. My picky little brother who hates Mac & Cheese, devoured hers... that says a lot 😃. Rashida is professional with a beautiful spirit. We will definitely be repeat customers.

Thank you very much I appreciate it, and I'm glad I could appeal to even the pickiest eaters! 😁

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I view each client as an individual and handled them as such. My prices reflect my attention to detail, customization and flexibility, as well as industry experience.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, and have training as a line cook, chef de partie, bartender, and caterer.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I grew up in a household that revolves around food. My mother is from New Orleans and my father is from the Caribbean. So food was a large part of my childhood and upbringing. I enjoyed learning from my mother and grandmother as I grew up...and that love of food and feeding others is what motivates me to this day!
