  • The Art Institute of Washington
    For over a decade, The Art Institute of Washington has welcomed students—those seeking degrees and those just taking a class or two—to its classrooms, located just across the street from the Rosslyn Metro station. Some of those classrooms smell positively delicious; the facility houses three teaching kitchens, a dining lab, and a student-run restaurant helping budding culinary experts develop their palates, knife-skills, and knack for making cauliflower appetizing. Other students master graphic and web design, fashion marketing, and photography, and interior design students get to illuminate things—literally—in the lighting lab.

  • Moses Jackson Cajun & Creole Chef
    Chef Moses has a surefire way to ensure everything he cooks brims with the best ingredients and flavors—he imagines it's for his mother. The veteran chef cooked his first meal, which was a steak dinner, for his mom at the age of 10 before eventually going on to train at the Culinary Institute of New Orleans. The burgeoning cook then honed his skills by working under renowned chefs Emeril Laggasse and Paul Prudhomme at their respective restaurants. Today, the now-seasoned chef creates his own signature dishes—such as a crawfish bisque and pasta jambalaya—that blend old family recipes with his own unique additions, earning himself features in Louisiana Cooking Magazine and on WWL-TV News. All the while, he cooks with a firm grasp on the differences between Cajun and Creole cooking, which mostly come down to the spice level, origin, and astrological sign of Cajun and Creole shrimp. In addition to using catering trays as his canvases, he showcases his culinary talents during classes that teach novice chefs how to prepare their own restaurant-quality meals.

  • PlateDate
    In order to make a home-cooked meal with fresh ingredients, you could travel to a farm, pick some produce, then combine all the ingredients and hope for the best. Or you could just hire a personal chef from PlateDate, a business with a roster of professionals who prepare meals in the comfort of your own home. Clients simply go online to select a date and build a menu, then they sit back and wait for their chef to arrive. Using their own fresh, ingredients and the homeowner's cookware, the chef will whip up a meal that may include gourmet dishes such as pan-seared sea scallops, roast pork tenderloin, or ricotta-and-spinach gnocchi. The result: a professionally-prepared dinner for friends, family members, or neighbors who smelled the aromas and let themselves in through the kitchen window.

  • Bella Companies
    Though his family hails from Italy, Chef Alfio Celia takes his cues from the French when it comes to the art of cooking. After learning the basics among French chefs, Chef Alfio sharpened his knives at various restaurants around DC before establishing a culinary consulting firm, Bella Companies. There, the chef learned how to help businesses thrive from the inside out by working with hotels, restaurants, and cafés to develop menus, provide start-up management assistance, and train new staff members. When he’s not advising clients on the finer points of the food-service industry, Chef Alfio can be found in the Bella Companies kitchen, where he helps at-home chefs thrive with his cooking classes. These sessions are open to home chefs of all experience levels. Chef Alfio provides his students with insider culinary tips, such as how whip up a large brunch feast capable of feeding the 25 or more out-of-state relatives who decided to "just drop by" your place for the weekend.
