The surprise birthday dinner for my husband was an incredible night we will all always remember - thanks to Chef-Dan and Brianna! From the very beginning, they were incredibly responsive, not only with crafting a quote but with responding to questions and special accommodations (gluten-free, no problem!). Working with Chef-Dan, I selected a number of items for our menu, mostly by viewing his website, which proved to be spot-on. Everything he made tasted as beautiful as all the images on his website. He was also available to answer my questions and help me to make the best selections for a group with varying ages (12-74) and tastes. Also, he helped me to stretch our funds, and still satisfy the very large contingent of hungry 20-somethings! Chef-Dan agreed to provide demonstration-style cooking for our guests, and he captivated us with searing scallops, slicing lamb chops, and beautifully plating up our dishes. The banana foster dish was by far the most fun with the flames shooting up from the stove! Chef-Dan was focused, but in a friendly way, and calmly explained everything he was doing. Everyone loved the event and it was so nice to be gathered as a family and enjoy an amazing meal without anyone having to be taken away with preparations and cleaning. I cannot count how many times I overheard "What a great idea!" and "This is so much fun!" from our family members. I was so grateful that the night went so well. And, that he not only shops for everything and brings it to you, but also leaves your kitchen spotless. Wow. One of my special requests was for some guidance on making 2 signature cocktails. Brianna to the rescue! She not only sent, in advance, a list of everything we needed on hand, she brought with her all necessary items to mix, stir, and masterfully serve drinks. She completely captured the audience and had everyone engaged. We had a lot of fun learning how to make not only 2 drinks from Brianna, but I think we may have made 8 different drinks. Our 20-somethings in the crowd thought this was so much fun! Chef-Dan and Brianna - you make an amazing team and our entire family cannot wait to see you again! Thank you for making this special birthday a night we will always remember! We cannot remember ever having a better time together over a meal.Nov 9, 2017Verified
Chef Dan was great. The food was delicious and he described every dish to our guests. He also accommodated a vegan and someone who could not eat sugar, soy or dairy. Quite a challenge. Excellent food, no fuss, and the kitchen was left spotless. Highly recommend.Aug 27, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Every menu is different, so there is no set pricing. We start our cocktail parties at $40 per head, buffets at $50, and multi-course plated meals start at $100 per person.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We first speak through thumbtack and then set up a day and time to speak over the phone and discuss the event. I then send a sample menu with pricing over to the client. If they decide to go with me I send out the catering contract to be signed and returned with a deposit for the date.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been in the industry for over 10 years. I graduated at the top of my culinary class and have worked in many fine dinning establishments.
