    Word cannot describe the incredible experience



    As the saying goes when one door closes, another opens.

    With the events of 2020 a full large scale wedding at a venue morphed into an intimate backyard wedding for 40. We never imagined how our daughter's (the bride) professional relationship with Dane would be such a blessing when he agreed to cater her wedding.

    We want to make this testimonial short In hopes it gets read in its entirety.

    Dane prepared a plated rehearsal dinner meal (on Friday evening for 25), Saturday box lunches for the bride/bridal party get ready meal and a plated meal for the wedding as well as providing bar service. The food was far and away some of the best we have eaten in our entire life (and we have eaten a lot of very good food). It is a true testament that several nights after the wedding it was the food we would talk about more so than the beautiful event, ceremony bride and groom.

    To top off the food Dane is warm and as cool as a cucumber while executing his art. He is calm, friendly, and hospitable (far from the overtly stressed snappy stereotypical chef). It seems as though Dane's calmness resinates to his staff who are equally lovely, and hospitable ,while at the same time paying extraordinary attention to detail for set up, service, and clean-up.

    At the end of the weekend Dane and his staff felt more like dear dear friends rather than a vendor.

    In summary CDK was instrumental in making our daughter and now son-in-law's wedding weekend an even more so amazing and memorable event. Thank you CDK!!!!

    Amazing dinner, the food was out of this world.

    We selected Dane to host our rehearsal dinner before our wedding as something that would be unique as well as different than a restaurant. We didn’t know when we selected him that he would forever change how we viewed a fancy sit down plated dinner. We had a 5-course menu with wine that I believe would score at least a Michelin star possibly two as it was barn none the best meal I have ever had in my life.

    Dane selected a perfect venue for our dinner of 20 people in a lovely cozy art gallery surrounded by a wonderful art exhibit. The table settings and decorations of flowers and runners was exquisite. Everything was welcoming and elegant which was the perfect vibe that we were striving for our formal dinner.

    Dane and his team brought our first dish and he gave us a description of this wonderful appetizer and we couldn’t wait to dig in. As our guest all remarked on how good this was and wine flowed in to our cups and conversation became lively we knew this was going to be the perfect evening. The food got better and better with each course, just when you thought you couldn’t taste anything better the next dish would arrive and your taste buds were set alight with new flavors again.

    The only downfall was that Dane was so amazing that now we compare every meal we have since that day to his and all fall considerably short. Dane is an excellent chef, and his staff and wine pairings made the entire evening a true delight. I look forward to the next time I need to book him to repeat such a marvelous evening.
