What people are saying about Taking Pure Joy
I would Personally like to recommend Chef Teddy Danielson for any special meal for ANY special occasion. Talk about professional, innovative, creative, accommodating, a joy to work with and the meal outstanding. I hosted a paella garden party and she prepared a traditional seafood paella while also adjusting to my request to add chorizo and chicken. She prepared a very tasty and unusual salad to compliment the paella. All I did was pick up the bread and cheese. She even made an appetizer using an olive spread I brought back from a recent trip to NYC. She's delightful, fun, knowledgeable and very down to earth. I can not recommend her enough.
