About this pro

When I am first contacted by a prospective client regarding a quote that I submit for an event, I collect information.  I find out exactly what the client's food preferences and service needs are, and what their perfect event would look like.  Then I make sure I leave them with no questions or concerns by explaining detail for detail what their menu will look like, how setup will be executed, and how payment is accepted for the day of the event.  Our lines are always open, so I encourage them to call or email with any questions or concerns in the days coming up to event to help put them at ease. My personal passionately focused goal is to alleviate all stress involved in catering an event, and to let the guest be amazed as they watch the delicious, delicately chef-prepared food be laid out before their eyes.

I genuinely love cooking and sharing my gift, and I love to serve people and see their gratitude!

    The food was delicious and plentiful and the service was excellent!

    I just hired them to do a cooking class team building retreat for the all the staff of my computer software company. We were more than happy and my team came away saying they didn't just learn valuable cooking skills, but they really benefited from watching the creative and planning process involved in catering parties. Terrific time! I only have been using them since the first event they did for me last year.

    Chef Daniel never fails to impress me! They've never disappointed yet, and quite the opposite, they always out do themselves with their setup and service. We just hired them again for a small private cocktail mixer last week at our house, which needed bar service. We were going to outsource the alcohol but then the chef informed us that they provide bartender services as well and we saved a ton of money that way because the services were lumped together and he gave us a great deal for the bar. We were very thankful for that because we were on a tight budget.

    Their attention to detail is next to none! They made our reception so eclectic and gorgeous with their flare they added to the decor. I've never really tasted food in San Diego that's as delicious but progressive like what Chef Daniel produces with his menu spread. It's refreshing and hit just the right cord we were aiming for to help compliment our exotic and fun atmosphere we wanted. I WILL be hiring them again! :) Thank you so much again!
