Testimonials

"I just wanted to share my thanks for your efforts in working with us on a tight schedule and with the dietary restrictions imposed. Your professionalism and attention to detail was appreciated, your willingness to work to make our event successful was wonderful, and everyone at our home commented on how delicious the meal was; which was incredible given the restrictions of no gluten, no dairy, and no added sugar. Even after the event we were amazed at the immaculate condition of the kitchen, it was cleaner after you left than it has been for quite some time. I definitely recommend your services to anyone who may have a similar event which would need a personal chef. Thank you again and I hope your holidays are filled with joy and you have a happy new year."

"Our family always looks forward to the day when you come to cook.  Not only does our house smell divine but we all know we will be eating well in the days to come.  The Moroccan Beef Meatballs were so good I almost didn’t want to share with the rest of the family!  We don’t typically love fish but the Tilapia and Roasted Halibut you prepared was so delicious you have converted us.  The Greek Pastitsio was better than my Mom’s (but please don’t tell her that)!  My young children thought the Beef Tenderloin was better than any restaurant and my husband and I agree!  Your food is complex in flavors but so easy to enjoy and my picky children love it; it is truly on par with the best restaurants in DC."

"We hired the food sherpa llc to cater our Valentine’s Day party. He is the ultimate professional. He’s organized, thoughtful, thorough, and creative. Most importantly, his food is delicious. We’ve actually hired the food sherpa llc for a few private events and people always rave about the food."

"We decided to have a formal dinner party in our dining room with 4 couples for a friend's birthday. Keith communicated with us ahead of time to help set up a fresh seasonal menu and he arrived promptly and set up his amazing cooking supplies. He then greeted the guests and offered a first course. As Keith began cooking the meal he incorporated instructional time for those dinner guests who wanted to learn about knife skills, braising, etc. We all found this fascinating. After we were seated in the dining room, we were served a delicious meal with wine pairings. His clean up was thorough! We don't hesitate to give Keith 5 stars for a memorable evening with a truly talented chef!"

"Having Keith cook for us is one of the best things we've ever done. He shops, cooks, cleans and the food is outstanding! Love the ease of preparation and quality of the food. Keith has truly simplified my life. I have healthy food in healthy portions and the convenience is awesome!"

"I really enjoyed everything you made for me. I can't think of anything that I would change. I look forward to the next round of dinners as I am sure they will be just as tasty!"

"Keith's cooking class for our group was outstanding. He took the time to make sure each of us participated and learned his techniques (cutting, searing, etc.), and he even left us with personalized recipe guides.  Keith's professional yet casual approach to top-notch cooking made it less intimidating to try new things.  My husband and I have even used those recipes to make the dish since the class - it's our favorite now!"
Monica — Arlington, VA


"Thank you for a great party!  My daughter loved it, and we got feedback from three of her friends that 'It was the best party!' I hope you enjoyed yourself."
Brenda — Washington DC


"I wanted to thank you very much for the fabulous week of wonderful meals. It was such a treat to have such a great selection of meals to choose from for a whole week! I was amazed at your ability to cook the meat perfectly so as to allow for it to be cooked to perfection when I warmed it up versus being overdone. You did an incredibly thorough job of preparing for your day in our house and we greatly appreciated the accurate nutritional information that is invaluable to us as we care for our children, especially our son, with diabetes."

"the food sherpa llc is a consummate professional! From the initial consultation to the follow up correspondence, Keith took great care to respond to our unique gastronomic preferences. We were amazed with the culinary artistry he performed from our tiny, cramped kitchen! He prepared a delectable set of meals for us, each robust with fresh flavors and filling portions. It was a treat to eat such fine entrees in the comfort and convenience of our own home. Our two young children even enjoyed the offerings and commented on how it was reminiscent of eating out at a fancy restaurant. Thanks, Keith, for providing outstanding service and delicious meals to help calm and delight our busy lives!"

"Thank you so much for making my 12th wedding anniversary so exceptional. Your dinner service was a unique way to celebrate and recognize this special day.

The three course meal that you prepared was wonderful! The potatoes were especially terrific! My wife and I have never had potatoes prepared in that manner, so it was a great treat. As you know from our discussion that evening, my wife can be a tough critic when it comes to food. I just wanted to let you know that she thought everything was delicious and so did I!

Thanks again for putting so much thought and effort into our meal and for your wonderful service. We really enjoyed it!"
Jason — Annandale, VA


“Susan and I would like to thank you for doing such a wonderful job on our dinner party. It was so nice to be able to spend time in the evening with our family rather than in the kitchen preparing the meal. The dinner was great!!"
Susan & Arty — Alexandria, VA


"We wanted to thank you for doing a great job on our holiday party. The variety of food that you provided for our event was really wonderful. Between the spanakopita, egg rolls, chicken satay, vegetable trays, cured salmon, and dips there was certainly something for everyone to enjoy. And the desserts were fantastic: the cream puffs and the chocolate tart were superb!

Interestingly enough, we attended a couple of other holiday parties after this one and noted similar food items on many of the menus. Because we had already had the pleasure of sampling some of the same types of food at our party, we really enjoyed feeling like we were up to speed on the 'culinary curve' for the remainder of the holiday season! Your service provided a unique way to celebrate the holidays. Everyone really enjoyed themselves!"
