About Me

Hello! I am Chef Vasily Shichkov with 10-year experience in culinary arts. My strong passion for culinary excellence and leading experience allowed me to move quickly from a cook position to an executive chef role just within three years.
Several years ago I moved to the United States and continued my adventure in the culinary world. Learning the processes and experience of American cuisine, working in the top hotels and restaurants of the DMV area (like Park Hyatt Washington, Ritz-Carlton TC), and cooking for the American celebrities and politicians for two years, I was inspired for creating my own menu.
It is my pleasure to present my vision of Modern American fusion cuisine which is based on a fresh local seasonal product, modern techniques, American classical recipes, some Asian and French accents, and my inner spirit and soul.
I believe my international and local experience will allow my guests to pursue an amazing, unforgettable adventure and discover my culinary world!

  • Excellent service, and a humble, passionate chef. He was very responsive to email and arrived to our location right on the dot and began dinner service right on the dot. Food was exactly as advertised.

  • Dinner was excellent. We loved the oysters, the shrimp cocktail was slightly spicy and excellent. This was a first time for most having borscht, the presentation was just as shown in photos, great croutons. The fillet with mushroom risotto was great, and I don’t really like mushrooms! He was on time, clean, and professional. Would certainly use Vasily again.

  • We were all so happy with Chef Vasily! What a great to have someone cook and clean for our group of 10. There was not a drop of soup, a morsel of food, or a crumb left after each course. If the need ever arises again, I will use this service and request Chef Vasily!!!!

  • Chef Vasily was a star! He was extremely accommodating to my dietary preferences (I hosted a thanksgiving dinner party where half the guests were vegan and half weren’t.) I actually went back and forth with him multiple times about revisions to the menu and the event, and he was still so pleasant about it all. He arrived exactly on time, worked very diligently, and served the most delicious food I’ve ever had cooked by a private chef. He was so gracious and professional. I highly recommend him and will reach out to him for my future events!

  • Chef Vasily was absolutely wonderful to work with. I really appreciated all of the small details and that he genuinely listened to what I was looking for. Our expectations were exceeded far more than I could have hoped. He created a memorable night and I am very grateful for the experience he provided in making a very special celebration even more special than I could have imagined.

  • Chef Vasily and his assistant were on time and very professional. My guests are still raving about the quality of the food that was served. I recommend Chef Vasily for any one considering a home cooked meal without the work. Oh and our kitchen was left spotless. Fantastic experience. I will be doing this again.

  • Chef Vasily was superb! From start to finish an incredible experience beyond words. I can not say enough good things about the entire experience, and anyone considering using Chef Vasily for their event will not be disappointed.

  • Our experience with Chef Vasily was top notch. He was extremely professional and an absolute pleasure to have at my home. He was accommodating to my picky eating needs and even prepare a separate salad course for me. The food was amazing as well. There we a couple of us that don't normally like beets, but his Borscht is absolutely incredible. He also brought in a server that was very professional and a pleasure to have as well. This was the perfect experience for my wife's 50th birthday.
