    Best wedding cake ever!!

    Chef Danielle and her staff were absolutely amazing! They helped so much with all the preparation and the food and the cake were just delicious! Chef Danielle was super easy and fun to work with. She was very responsive and helpful. Our special day was perfect thanks to The Sofo Spoon. We will hire them again on different occasions for sure in the future! Highly recommended! P.S. try their golden beets/ goat cheese cake! It was the cherry on top at our weeding!

    Outstanding food and service

    We used Danielle and her staff for our 11/13/20 backyard wedding of 41 people. Danielle helped us customize our menu (which we did buffet-style) and completely took care of all tent and equipment rentals for us. She was so great throughout the whole planning process - quick to answer emails and calls, and helped us so much with deciding on the right options for our party. Day of, her and her staff took care of literally everything - my husband and I did not lift a finger and didn't have a single worry the entire party. Everything was delicious, from the charcuterie boards, appetizers, mains, and desserts! I could not recommend the SoFo Spoon enough!!

    Highly recommend!!

    I could not recommend Danielle and the SoFo spoon more. Danielle prepared both our rehearsal dinner and wedding meals. We had a very small (15 of our closest friends and family) pandemic celebration.

    Danielle understood our vision and concerns from day 1. She was responsive, accommodating, respectful and also made us feel like we weren’t compromising for our big day even though we had to change plans 3 times prior to this.

    Not only is Danielle amazing to work with, her food in unbelievably tasty. Our guests are still talking about the short ribs she made.

    She made our lives easier and fit seamlessly into our intimate affair. If you are looking for an amazing chef that goes above and beyond, she’s your girl.

Chef Danielle Santaniello
Owner & Executive Chef

Hi! I'm Chef Danielle. I was born and raised on Long Island and reside here with my husband and our two children. I am an avid cycler and love to travel. Selfcare and overall wellness are things I enjoy to take part in daily. My life consists of spending as much time as possible enjoying the company of friends and family and of course, cooking.

I wholeheartedly believe that the absolute best moments of our lives take place around a table with good food, family and friends. There is something so incredibly nostalgic about the little things we remember about food. The smell of browning butter on a gas stove top, the first bite of a sweet homegrown tomato, or the sound of the ice cream truck on a hot summer's day. These are moments I hope to create for clients to make memories that last a lifetime. It's an honor and a privilege to be able to share my passion with others every day of my life. My approach to food is simple- cook what is seasonal, cook what tastes good, and always end on a sweet note. The Sofo (South Fork) Spoon was born in 2017 and is a full service private chef and event production company.

I earned my culinary and pastry education at The International Culinary Center, formerly The French Culinary Institute in New York City. I graduated with distinction in 2013 from three programs including Classic French Pastry, Cake Design, & Culinary Techniques. My early career was spent in the kitchens of high end catering facilities throughout NYC. I later ran the culinary program for Long Island's Sur La Table. It was during this time that I discovered my passion for working with clients one on one for private events.

I truly enjoy what I do each and everyday and I am so thankful to work with such an amazing team of professionals I am taking along for the ride. Hope to work with you soon!
