About Me

I am an award-winning Chef who originally hails from the District. I served 13 years of military service in the Army. During that time I traveled the globe and gained an appreciation for food like no other. That passion led me to obtaining a bachelors in Culinary Arts from Johnson and Wales University.
I have been a personal chef to the highest military leadership and a state governor, sous chef, and an executive chef, I have held the chef title in Iceland, Italy, Denmark, and through out the US. But while traveling I felt there was more I could do with food that just feed people. I want to make a difference in this world. That drive led me to getting a masters degree in Sustainable Food Systems. With the knowledge I have gained from that program I hope to improve the food system through food service.
In addition to being an active member in kitchens, I have written for publications like Edible about the southern Maryland’s agriculture emerging scene after years of tobacco production. My passion for food in deeply embedded with local farmers, ranchers, and fisherman.

  • Isaiah presented an exquisite meal for our business gathering in Arlington. An excellent communicator, Isaiah also was more than willing to create beautiful "mocktail" pairings with each course of the meal. Each course was beautifully presented. We are so impressed with Isaiah--thank you so much for making our evening fantastic and memorable.

  • Chef Isaiah was amazing. He listened to our preferences and delivered a one of a kind memorable dinner. I couldn't be happier. He was timely and also left the kitchen spotless. I'll definitely be using this service again.

  • Isaiah made us a fabulous meal. He sent a very thoughtful and delicious menu ahead of time, and delivered in full. He came on time and prepared everything on time, and brought everything he needed for the night. He also left the kitchen just as he found it which was much appreciated. I would highly recommend Isaiah for all of your cooking needs.

  • Chef Isaiah was top notch in every regard. He went the extra mile to accommodate our family’s individual dietary restrictions. In the planning phase, he was communicative and gracious. All the food was incredibly delicious and presented in gourmet style. He cleaned up and had our kitchen looking good as new in amazing time. 5 star experience all around!

  • Chef Isaiah created an amazing Sicilian feast to help us celebrate my dad’s birthday. He was professional, personable, and highly skilled! I’d recommend him to anyone looking for a 5-star meal in the comfort of their own home. Thank you, Chef!

  • Isaiah provided an outstanding experience creating a dinner for 12 people. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The food was delicious, with the short ribs a particular stand out. All aspects of the presentation and service were excellent. He did an excellent job meeting our need for the food to be gluten and dairy free and to have a vegan option. He made a special occasion very memorable for all. I highly recommend him.
