Private Cooking Lessons
Daniella is very friendly, fun, and easy to work with! She helped us plan a delicious menu around a lot of dietary restrictions and had a lot of snacks and fun tidbits during the lesson. She even helped us salvage a couple of our mistakes into additional dishes!Dec 9, 2019Verified

She catered our family Thanksgiving dinner. She was very open to changes in the menu at our request, and worked well within our budget. It made the holiday stress free and she was very flexible in terms of drop off considering covid. The food was delicious, and made the holiday stress-free.Nov 28, 2020Verified

Dani prepared a nice Asian dinner for five people for my wife's birthday and it was a great success. Before the event she handled communications in a very timely manner, provided great ideas for the menu, and accommodated my specific asks. She came right on time and dinner was served as planned. The food was fantastic from the appetizer to the dessert. Guests were impressed. Dani also cleaned everything up and cleaned the kitchen before leaving. I definitely recommend her and I look forward to hiring her again.Oct 28, 2020Verified

Way over priced for what we received. $400 damage to our home by assistant and she showed no concerns about it. Asked for wine pairing and she did not make clear that she did not supply them. Our first time doing this and had a poor event. Nice person but not professionalOct 20, 2020VerifiedDani Bensimon Catering's reply
This review is a surprise. The event went beautifully and guests were happy. My sous chef was asked to help with wine pouring and one of the bottles unexpectedly exploded. I only learned after the fact that my sous chef did not clean up the mess. So sorry that this happened. If I had known, I would have covered the damage. Wine pairings are not included typically, and I did tell Earl that I could suggest pairings, but wine would be additional.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing covers commercial kitchen rental, menu planning, groceries, shopping time, prep, cooking, clean up, packaging. I use organic and locally sourced meat, poultry, seafood and produce. Only the best for my clients! I pay my staff a generous wage.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Dining at the very best, most quality restaurants in town, cooking classes, reading culinary magazines, trying out new recipes at home for loved ones, blog subscriptions, visits to eclectic food markets, TRAVEL!!!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After numerous years of unsatisfying job experiences, I decided to pursue my passion for cooking & creating personalized menus as well as event management; it's been nonstop busy ever since and I do not look back! I couldn't imagine returning to a 9-5 and I absolutely love being my own boss. I also love that I work for my customers, always able to put my customers first!
