“I hired Anna for my husbands retirement party this past Saturday. She was very professional about keeping in contact with me, and arriving right when she said she would be there. The set up went smoothly and was set up in a professional look. Everybody complemented on how good the food was and how nice they were. Not only was the food delicious it was always kept up with and they always had any food spills cleaned up. The clean up was done quickly and I didn’t have to worry about anything.
I highly recommend them for your next party, family gathering or just for a night with your loved one as a surprise.
Thank you for all your hard work” ~ D.W.

“Anna did a “cooking class/demo” for a friend’s bachelorette party. We had an absolute blast. She answered unrelated cooking questions about what a specific ingredient was, or how to prepare something we’ve struggled with elsewhere. We learned a full meal of new recipes and had fun at the same time. She felt like she was just one of the girls, not an uncomfortable distant teacher.
She came to the house with all of her supplies AND she did the clean up too! We were all pleased and the bride had a great time!
I hope you get to benefit from her creativity next.” ~ L.S.

“A brilliant concept and well executed. Healthy homemade dinner options in the convenience of your home. Well done.” ~ C.I.

“Anna was a pleasure to work with. The food was delicious.  I will use again for sure!” ~ J.M.

“Working with Anna was a pleasure! She adjusted to my dietary requests with true professionalism and checked in with me regularly before my event. The food was delicious! Perfectly seasoned and fulfilled all of my requests for the event. Her presentation was beautiful. She was punctual and true to her word at every stage. I would hire her again in a second!” ~ S.L.

My name is Anna Hattauer and I love to cook. I am a personal chef living in Maryland. I grew up in California, joined the United States Army right after high school, got married, raised three children while going to college and working full time. As a young military wife and mother, we didn't have the money to go out to eat on a regular basis and had to make each pay check stretch. I learned how to prepare meals that were delicious, while staying within budget. While working full-time in the corporate world with the usual 2-3 hour I-270 commute, coupled with school & sports events, scouts and taking care of three children, it was tough to find the time or the energy to come home and prepare healthy meals for my family. Being a military family, we have traveled to many places around the world. I love trying new foods, the challenge of cooking new recipes and having friends over for dinner as well as cooking for special events. After cooking for my friends and family for over 25 years, I decided that I wanted to share my love of food and make people happy, so I dropped the corporate chaos and attended a formal culinary school and became a certified personal chef. I am a member of the United States Personal Chef Association and I am licensed, insured and ServSafe certified.
