Chat Recap: Ask a Caterer

A local kosher caterer dishes on the best ways to make your wedding a culinary masterpiece.

David Dahan was born into a family of 11 in Morocco. That’s one big, hungry family! So it’s no surprise that Dahan’s passion for food started at a young age. When he opened Rockville-based Dahan Caterers in 1998, his goal was to improve the reputation of kosher food. He succeeded. He’s now a top-rated caterer in The Washingtonian’s wedding guide, and he’s done events at the White House and the Supreme Court.

The French-trained caterer knows food. Our readers needed catering advice and sent in tons of questions. In a live chat on Thursday, David came through with four-star answers.
