    Marla Cushing, Director of Food service marketing, CSM Bakery Solutions


    "Dan has extremely strong presentation skills. He led a breakout session at Flavor Experience, speaking about a coast to coast trend tour that he and his team had conducted. The session was well received by attendees and led to several follow up meetings. Dan is extremely creative, his command of menu architecture serves him well in the development of menu application from appetizers to desserts."

    Justyna Cermeli, Research Scientist, Schreiber Foods

    "Chef Dan is a very creative and always willing to try something new. He has a tremendous passion for food and cooking. He always pays close attention to details. We worked together on numerous projects and I always enjoyed the long hours at the culinary center and at the lab. I also admire him for being able to think quickly and making good decisions when problems arise. "

    Patty Mitchell, Executive Chef, Mondelez International


    "I've had the pleasure to work with Dan for 3 years on the Chefs Council of a major chain. Dan is a very talented chef, creative and is able to translate a gold standard product into an item that fits the customers needs while not losing the integrity of the gold standard.


    Dan's presentation skills are first-rate, articulate and well-versed in his material.


    The highest compliment I could give Dan is that he treats each customer like they are his only customer."
