How long has it been since you prepared something special for your loved one? Because of our busy lives and lack of time, we often don’t have the time to properly prepare a special event. When is time to celebrate a special date, we often think that the best way to celebrate is visiting a nice restaurant. Sometimes, restaurants can be loud or you may have to wait for a table or your server may not be friendly and your food order may not be served as you wish. Now you can have the date of your dream with the comfort of your own home. Chef Manny Rodriguez can personally prepare your special dinner. Celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, and more, with high-quality freshly-made dishes.

About Chef

“Back to Life,” a seafood and shellfish ceviche in tomato sauce is the reigning People’ Choice and Judges Pick in the 2015 Embassy Chef Challenge event and an original creation of Chef Manuel Rodriquez. This standard dish is but one memorable dish in the pantheon of Chef’s recipes. A veteran of the Venezuelan Embassy and US Capitol kitchens, as well as restaurants like Crave in Bethesda and Cubanos in Silver Spring, Chef Manuel draws inspiration from his roots on the Venezuelan coast where he learned his way around the kitchen and fresh produce markets from generations of family members. He now brings both comfort food and special creations for your event. His award-winning recipes are but a sampling of his vast repertoire and he is happy to work with you to make sure your event is unique and memorable.
