Dinner by Design

www.karenthechef.com Karen is a personal chef who has been serving families of northern Virginia quality food since 2005.

Having a personal chef allows you to spend more time doing what you want to do. Your personal chef gives you back hours of free time that you had previously been spending planning meals, waiting in line at the grocery store, unpacking and prepping food and, of course, cooking and cleaning up afterward.
