Thanks for coming to cook for us Daniel! All the dishes were amazing, presentation was awesome. You transformed our kitchen and plates we use every day into a fine dining experience!

They served us very well in a pinch. We had our chef we hired cancel on us last minute and we hired Kitchen Alchemy Catering the day before our event in place of him. Chef Daniel responded quickly and put together a fabulous menu for my wife and our friends. I would highly recommend them.

I wanted to book him, he seemed to have a lot of knowledge, he was really good at working with the desired budget and he seemed to truly be passionate about what he does but my tasting was canceled/rescheduled 4 times, but never followed through. There were a bunch of unusual circumstances that came up, but it never worked out.

Daniel was simply amazing. I requested his services to surprise my girlfriend on our anniversary. With a brief description of what we both like he was able to develop an incredible 5 course spread. Daniel was flexible in accommodating our schedule and followed the specific instructions I gave him to make the evening a surprise. Reading the descriptions of the meals was mouth watering but to actually taste it was truly an experience. Everything came out better than I could have imagined. Daniel was very knowledgable and presented each dish beautifully. To top it all off, when he was done, he washed all the dishes and left the kitchen as if he was never there. 10/10 would recommend Daniel's culinary services!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    There is no set pricing. I gather details about your specific needs, every facet. Then I try to conceptualize the most high quality and creative menu I can while simultaneously dailing in the price as tight as I need to meet the client's budget. This willingness to adjust and be flexible is what has given me a competitive edge over many other local chefs over the last several years. I'm rarely the cheapest option on the chopping block, but I'm never one of high prices, far from it! In addition, I have by far the best pricing in the San Diego Metro for any chef or caterer providing a "Boutique Dining Experience or Boutique Catering".

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I gather contact info, reach out and introduce myself and get comfortable with the client, and than I ask as many questions as I can. I really have a lot of passion when it comes to details and specific individual preferences, to make sure each and every guest is accommodated appropriately.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been working in the kitchen since 8 years old at home and have over 20 years in the restaurant, catering and private chef sectors. I am well versed in the vast majority of requested cuisines in the world, allowing me to create cohesive fluid menus, while playing aggressively with progressive fusion techniques and flavors.
