Personal Chef # 11610
Out of the box, traditional comfort foods with a twist, lots of flavours, super creative with a passion to please dinners that is unrivaled. Everything from Mexico to Italy, Japan to Deep South and Creole. I love Southern flavours.
I was a chef at Tupelo Honey for many years before owning my own restaurant in downtown Asheville for many years. I was voted best Chef in WNC 2013 and also featured on the Food network. My restaurant Tomato Jam Cafe also represented the South for all of breakfast in Rachael Ray magazine, one of my favorite accomplishments. Professional, experienced and knowledgeable about craft beers and wine pairings to provide a full balanced culinary experience. I've also done brewing demos, I've had multiple 1st place beers, between Asheville - Johnson City - and Knoxville, along with two best in show beers two years in a row. I'm serve safe certified and I pride myself on being very sanitary and using only fresh local ingredients. I'm also very good at homemade candies, pastries, cakes, pies and sweets.
Outstanding experience for our party of 6. Not only was the food exceptional, Chef Daniel’s service was impeccable. Highly recommended!
Chef comment: Jess thank you for taking time to comment! I had a great time cooking and being part of your first night in town ! Anytime you're in town please reach out, thanks!
Highlight of our trip!
We couldn’t be happier with our experience working with chef Daniel! He was so professional, accommodating, patient and incredible in the kitchen! We had a fairly large group (10) with 1 vegan and 1 vegetarian and he exceeded our expectations creating a delicious multiple course meal we all enjoyed! In addition, he was so kind when we pulled him from the kitchen to take pictures of group and to leave our kitchen cleaner than it was when he arrived. I can not say enough good things about Chef Daniel and really look forward to working with him again! Thank you miummium for linking us up & thank you chef Daniel for this wonderful experience! - Megan
