Thank you to Daniel and Virginia for making our girls' weekend dinner experience incredibly memorable. Each course was exquisitely prepared, and served. We all agreed the butternut squash soup was the best we'd ever had. From the pacing of courses, to the friendly and fun presence of Virginia and Daniel to the uniqueness of each dish, we couldn't have been more thrilled with the experience. 5 stars all around! -L.G.

I would like my most unreserved recommendation for Virginia and Daniel. They’ve been managing my home in Woodstock for over a year now and have been 100% responsive, reliable and responsible. Our house is 30 years old and has needed some major upkeep over the past year so they’ve really gone above and beyond the call of duty on multiple occasions. They have helped us find excellent craftspeople at reasonable rates. I trust them completely.

I want to thank you for a very memorable evening.
In addition to the fabulous food it was our pleasure to meet the both of you. You were both so gracious in accommodating our Family.
Originally I thought we were going to be interactive w/ the preparation….however with a few glasses of wine, conversation and the fireplace, we left the cooking in your capable hands. It could not have been better.
Thank you ! The meal was perfect. You both were outstanding.
Daniel is a very accomplished chef and is happy to cook 'whatever you want'. Virginia keeps house in the very best of traditions and seems to strike that very difficult note of being there when you need her and not when you don't. We had a blast with these two lovely people and they instinctively knew how to make us feel at home and looked after us so very, very kindly.

Meet The Chef
I'm a chef by trade and by choice. Twenty five years ago, I was in corporate management and knew I wanted more. I wanted to do what I loved. As a child growing up in New Orleans, I learned the healing power of food and saw that food can be the truest expression of Love. I've had the joy of owning my own award winning restaurant- Magnolia Ray in Asheville, North Carolina- and working with some amazing chefs, including Chef Jaime Shannon at Commanders Palace in NOLA, and Chef Brian Katz in St. Thomas, VI. Food is my passion and I love sharing my passion with the world!
