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.

Chef Daniel was very professional. He constantly checked on me and the event to make sure everything was going well. His customer service was excellent. The food was on point and I will be using his services in the future. 👍

Chef Daniel is amazing! I threw my Dad a surprise 80th birthday party while family was in town from Chicago. He was super at helping me plan the menu, patient and understanding with all my changes and the food is above 5 stars! Everyone loved his dishes especially his Empanadas and this fantastic fig jam he did with his charcuterie board! Brought everything we needed and was just really professional and sweet! Please if you need a catered party for 2 or 20 or more hire Chef Daniel! You will not be disappointed! Thanks Chef for making my Dad’s favorite food for his birthday! ❤️

FAQs

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

    Price per head (this is standard for caterers). I give discounts with more people, and continuing owners get more food for less.

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

    Getting a feel for what they want people to remember, their affordability, wishes, go over menus and options as well as payments and deposits (and "how else I can be of service.")

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

    I partake in food festivals and graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena after an intense 18 month program with food festival & restaurant staging as well as various kitchens like Border Grill, Roy Choi's "Pot" in Koreatown, "The Summit House" in Fullerton & alumni events.
