Introduction: Hello! I'm Chef Daniel, an eclectic Colombian-American chef with professional training from Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena. I've worked with top chefs at the Border Grill, Roy Choi, Gordon Ramsey and Michelin starred Summit House in Orange County. With this experience, I can prepare almost anything from my flavorful carne asada to vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free dishes. I am also a catering liaison for Firefly, Tacos & Beer and now Graze Kitchen (our Plant Powered vegan venture) as one of their catering chefs. Cooking has always been a part of my life. I love preparing flavorful food and teaching others how to cook. I make sure my samples are easy to duplicate when I teach, and I enjoy helping others start and continue living a healthy lifestyle. I make sure my clients are satisfied with the food and service (and pay a reasonable rate) so we're all happy.

We booked Cooking Like Crazy’s taco truck as the caterer for our wedding and we couldn’t have been happier. There was a great variety - five different kinds of tacos! - and the freshly made guacamole was out of this world. Our guests sent text messages for days afterward raving about the food. If you’re looking for a delicious, fairly-priced taco truck run by a friendly and professional chef, look no further.

I really enjoyed working with Daniel. He took the time to provide samples which led to my company using his services three times in a couple of months. The variety of food was great but the taste was even better. Especially his pesto chicken. I highly recommend Daniel.

We had Chef Daniel do the cooking for our Holiday Party this year, and to say I was impressed is an understatement. Not only did he plan the menu and execute it, but he also had a bartender with him to help pour wine and serve beer so my employees could enjoy their selves. A lot of stress is put on the host of these parties and Daniel made me feel at ease and comfortable with handing over the food responsibilities to him. The food turned out amazing, and everyone enjoyed the evening and the full bellies. Thank you again, and I can't wait to work with you on future events for our office.
