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!
