Testimonials

"Dana worked with Noodlebox to design our new kitchen layouts creating much better flow and efficiencies.  Dana created new dishes to enhance our existing menu and also tweaked dishes already on the menu.  She significantly lowered both our food and labour costs and built new relationships with all our suppliers for both food and equipment.  I would highly recommend Dana as she has what it takes to build a company."

— Dave Neill, CEO, Noodlebox, Canada

"During the pre-opening stage through to opening Dana over saw the development of the Culinary Brand and the multiple kitchen installations for Watermark Beach Resort. Dana's professionalism, commitment to excellence and her organizational skills were so very valuable. Dana not only gave me the confidence that we would be ready for opening, but that our culinary team would be developed and working together to ensure we opened with pride. Dana transitioned with our Chef de Cuisine Natasha Schooten smoothly and positively - thank you for your commitment and contribution Dana - I look forward to working with you again."

— Ingrid Jarret, General Manager, Watermark Beach Resort, Osoyoos


"Dana was hired by our company to review procedures and process at our commissary kitchen that supplies prepared and semi prepared foods for our upscale, specialty super market in the heart of Whistler Resort. She also created a staff training video. Her work was excellent. She fully understood the scope of work and delivered just what we wanted. It was a pleasure to work with Dana and we look forward to engaging her again as a consultant to our food business as the needs arise"

"I hired Dana to create original and unique dishes for my restaurant in downtown Toronto and then train my key kitchen staff to execute these dishes.

"I found Dana's approach to be much more then just another project for her: she is passionate, talented, organized, a true artist and most importantly, professional. We implemented all of Dana's dishes into our menu and specials and received the ultimate feedback - that from our customers. Dana took our food to another level and it has showed in our bottom line.

"The results far exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to work with her again."

— Janet Zuccarini, Owner, Café Nervosa, Yorkville, Toronto, Ontario


“As a wine producer primarily, we contracted Dana to help us with the food service at Lake Breeze. She has helped us tremendously with everything from staff training for both the service and kitchen staff, menu planning, food costing and inventory. She is a master of efficiency and her extensive knowledge of the food service business has certainly played a part in our increased profits this season”.
