Daniel CrawfordI received my BA degree in business from the University of Nebraska in 2001, and then obtained my Associate’s degree in culinary arts from the Culinary Institute of America in 2002. I worked at the four-diamond establishment the Escoffier Lounge at the Institute to receive my certification. I strive to pursue culinary perfection by keeping to the number-one rule in food; the sharper the contrast between sweet and salty, the better the food. I have developed a passion for food over the years in various parts of the culinary world from high-class restaurants to little mom-and-pop cafes. My father was in the military so I have also grown a passion for different foods through seeing different cultures at an early age. My roots are in Louisiana so most of my influence is Creole and Cajun food, but my specialties are French and Mediterranean. Through professionalism and great customer service, I plan on serving the Manhattan community, and look forward to make your Hy-Vee experience as if I were in your kitchen. As a loving father and husband, I have the extra family perspective in understanding that not all meals are perfect. However I will work with you to find a way to make your family’s experience the best one possible.
