Chef Daniel’s love of the industry arrived early, having his own omelet pan as a young boy. An early specialist in breakfast preparations, his formal professional training came at age 29. A career change became evident as he fell in love with all things baked and pastry. He graduated with honors from the Cordon Bleu in Portland, Oregon and has been a resort Pastry Chef for the last 20 years.
Having opened numerous properties in the USA and Caribbean, Daniel has always maintained his skills current and relevant. Whether it’s cooking for customers or judges, gaining valuable knowledge through competitions and continuing education, keeps him focused and driven.
Understanding the foundations of molecular to primitive cuisines, in addition to competing on a regular basis, has improved the quality and production of his work.
Chef’s career has helped to inspire and educate his cooks and assistants. Always focusing on continued engagement in the field, he has re-enforced training, learning and camaraderie. Setting the example for others is an invaluable commitment.
Being placed in the position to prepare delights for countless customers and celebrities, his skills have earned him many appearances in magazines, newspapers, and
television across the nation and abroad. Daniel’s work can be viewed at www.flickr.com/photos/pastry_chef_danny
