Daniella was a perfect fit from Day 1. She made my birthday dinner party for 12 feel effortless with her thoughtful menu ideas, careful ingredient sourcing, flexibility, and responsiveness. It was seamless! She prepared a three course Mediterranean/North African meal, including hummus with tahine sourced from Israel, fresh veggie hors d'ouevres from the farmers market, delicious goat cheese/beet salad, a succulent chicken tagine, roasted veggies and cardamom spiced rice, and for the grand finale, a banana chocolate cake to die for! Perhaps most of all, I appreciated her openness and friendliness. She was a lovely addition in our home while she prepared the meal, and a true professional. Very, very happy that I was able to find her and have recommended her to others since.
