The short version: we hired Daniel for our wedding of 89 people. He is an excellent cheff, he makes high quality delicious food and at a very reasonable price. He delivered exactly what we were looking for and more. The longer version if you have time: we found Daniel on this website, or he found us when we posted an inquiry. We were unsure if the event would be 150 people or 90 as we invited many from oversees. He had a proposed menu with pricing within hours. Within a day we had spoken on the phone and were Confirmed for our wedding 8 months or so away. As we weren't living in California we could not meet in person but reading Daniels reviews and speaking with him instilled confidence in our choice. Additionally I did reach out to another caterer to get a price check as it was recommended I do so from a friend. And when I opened the local companies quote I discovered they charges 3 times the price Daniel does, and were only offering a few appetizers, mains and a couple side dishes with 1 dessert. For 1/3 the price Daniel provided us with: 6 hot appetizers, cold station with dips and crudite upon guest arrival, delicious beef, a creamy chicken pesto with noodles, salmon with red pepper, salad w/ Gorgonzola and pear, rolls, roasted vegetables, AND many delicious desserts: creme brûlée, brownies, macaron (a surprise cookie as my family is French), coffee and tea -- and more I'm likely forgetting. He also provided licensed bartenders and a full staff. We provided our own alcohol and they did a very nice job with serving. Before the event Daniel prepared a "tasting" which I assumed meant a small sample of foods for the wedding. He came to our house with enough food to feed 6 of us for 3 days!!! And it was phenomenal. While with us he offered a place in his home for my family in France to stay if they needed. I'm not sure if I was more overjoyed by his kind, generous, caring and wonderful personality or his amazing culinary skills. We knew he was the BEST choice because not only would we get a great product from him but he as a person would add joy to the most joyful day of our lives. And on our wedding day 2 days ago, we heard comments about how delicious the food was from many of our guests. I attempted to try everything and was very pleased with the results (though I must admit my happiness interfered with my appetite on the day--but that's ok because I have leftovers to feed us for a week). One guest came up to me and said it was the best wedding food she had ever had. Giving our friends and family a delicious meal and great experience was so important to me and Daniel made that possible. I didn't see him until after the meal as the night was getting later but when I did it lit up my night even more! He and his beautiful wife were smiling as they worked in the kitchen and gave us such sweet wedding wishes. It was quite meaningful to me to be treated like a friend as well as with professionalism. If you are looking for a caterer with exceptional food, a wonderful personality, and great prices Daniel is your best choice. I would recommend him for an event of any size and Daniel, we will be contacting you in the future if we are ever looking for a caterer. Thank you so much!!!

I was extremely lucky to randomly find Daniel on Thumbtack. I was planning a big birthday party August 5 and wanted to enjoy my party instead of being exhausted. Daniel took care of everything from tables, chairs, tablecloths, bartender, the waitresses and of course the food. He is a very very calm person and everything went marticulous and a great time was had by all. Excellent food and desserts served In time and very professional in the service and cleaning. I recommend him highly and would use hI'm again for another carefree party. Nishat Siddiqi

FAQs

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

    I am a small caterer, I don't have the overhead of other catering companies. This allows me to be flexible and reasonable with pricing.

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

    The first thing I do when working with a new customer is meet with them at the location. I want the customer to feel comfortable and get to know me personally before the event, and avoid all kinds of surprises. I like to see the location, help with the planning, and to discuss and customize the menu for the event according to the location as well. This is all free of charge!

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

    BU Culinary School, and many years of work handling different events of all sizes in hotels and restaurants such as the Four Seasons in Edmonton, Canada, Sonesta Hotel in Bermuda. By speaking different languages, traveling, and working in different countries, I have experienced many different cuisines which shows in my cooking.
