"Wow! Chef David prepared and served an exceptional meal for my husband’s birthday dinner! Together, he and I planned a menu that included my husband’s favorite foods, and then he tailored each dish specific to our taste. Each of the 5 courses tasted incredible, and were beautifully plated. His dinner rivaled some of the finest restaurants we have dined in! Even better, we enjoyed it in the comfort of our own home. We are so happy with our entire experience, and our dinner guests were just as impressed by Chef David as we were. He is very professional and friendly, and we enjoyed having him in our home. On top of everything, he left my kitchen spotless, so we could enjoy time with our guests without worrying about clean up. We look forward to the next opportunity to host another dinner prepared by Chef David!"

So amazingly good!! My husband and I had a wonderful dinner prepared by David. I also had him make me some lunches for the next month to freeze so I could have some yummy and healthier options. I just had my first one and it is absolutely delicious!! So worth it!!

We hired Chef David on a lark, figuring it would be a novel and fun thing to do when dining out became restricted during COVID. It turned out to be much more than that; it was one of the most memorable dining experiences we have had. Our custom 4-course menu of crab cakes, mixed green salad, trout with wild rice, and peach and raspberry crisp with homemade gelato was beautifully designed and prepared. The flavors were unique and remarkable, and this coming from a guy who generally prefers to be hit in the face with hot peppers and strong flavors. My wife is from Maryland, and crab cakes have been a part of her life, as well as our family’s. Chef David’s crab cakes were the best I have eaten (although my wife will never admit it!). The touch of seasoned breading throughout the cake made them unusually light and flavorful. Both professional and down-to-earth friendly, Chef David was a pleasure to have in our home. I would rate our meal on par with some of the best restaurants we have eaten in, and having it prepared in our own kitchen added to the experience. We will definitely have Chef David prepare another private meal for us, but until COVID dies down we will be experiencing
his cooking skills through his prepared meals. Highly recommended!

I recently hired Chef David for a small surprise birthday dinner and was thoroughly impressed! Chef David is a true professional. Not only did he create a delicious 3-course meal full of seasonal ingredients but provided a stress-free experience by cleaning up after the meal and leaving us with a clean kitchen and time to enjoy with our guests. All of my guests raved about their experience and are looking forward to hiring Chef David in the future for their own events! I would highly recommend Chef David and his services.

I contacted David to help plan a minimal-contact anniversary dinner for my parents, and I was blown away with the experience. David asked about their food preferences, and he came up with a thoughtful and creative menu that also worked well to be delivered to their home. The entire planning process was outstanding, as David kept me up-to-date with what to expect and how things were going, while always answering my questions quickly and clearly. He was also great at laying out the costs and options during the planning, as well as completely transparent about the grocery costs (to the point of sharing the receipts).
Once the anniversary dinner came, my parents were overjoyed with their special meal, and they made a point of commenting on how the wonderful depth and complexity of flavor came through on each dish. Chef David truly changed an anniversary that was almost overlooked due to the global pandemic into a very special memory.
