The Best Maui Private Chef

Aloha, I’m Daniel, Elite Maui Chef

Chef Daniel has worked in the culinary industry for over a decade. He began his career at a very young age, working in a local Italian restaurant in West Palm Beach, Florida. This experience is where he realized his passion for cooking and began to pursue a life in the culinary arts. Chef Daniel attended the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, where he learned the fundamentals of essential cooking techniques from master chefs.

After graduating from CIA (Culinary Institute of America), Chef Daniel worked for many world-famous chefs across the country, such as Michael Mina in Miami, Florida, and Wolfgang Puck in Maui, Hawaii.

In his travels, he became the executive sous chef for a new and upcoming restaurant in the heart of San Francisco, CA.

After some time, the island of Maui was calling Chef Daniel back. Once he returned to Maui, he settled down with his family and made a career of working as a Maui private chef.

On a daily basis, the chef enjoys creating innovative menus, working intimately with his clientele, and creating an unforgettable dining experience for his clients. We are excited to share this epic experience with you and your family.
