Michaela was incredible! I booked her for my sister’s bachelorette party as a welcome dinner kick off in our AirBnB. Not only was the food delicious, she was super accommodating to our request to have our four course meal served on our AirBnB’s rooftop - which involved bringing food up a challenging set of stairs multiple times. The food was to die for and our group has not stopped talking about the meal. She cleaned up and left our place better than she found it. Can not recommend her enough!

Chef Michaela is very friendly and extremely talented. I chose the "Elevated Italian Cooking" dinner. Everything was extremely flavorful and delicious. You will not be disappointed. I am happy I chose her to help me celebrate my engagement and I plan hire her again. Would definitely recommend if you are in the DC / Maryland area!
