About Chef Daniel

“When i talk about food, i always get so passionate, because every day i see how good food brings people together. When two or more people share a meal that they enjoy, it can be an experience that stays with them their whole life. I want to create that experience for people every day!”

The Chef

Chef Daniel delivers amazing food creations for everyone from the home cook to the aspiring professional. With a strong family background in the food and lifestyle industry, he has had a star-studded career for over a decade, making his knowledge and skill highly sought after.  Having a passionate chef as a dad, it was normal when Daniel started cooking at the age of 5 and when he started assisting his dad in his restaurant not long after, it was clear that this was his calling.

While he may have seemingly burst onto the radio waves in 2016 through his role as co-host on the Food Hour for Talking Lifestyle, Daniel Abou-Chedid has been making waves for well over a decade.  Chef Daniel engages in traditions, flavours and techniques from around the world. His wealth of knowledge in cultural cuisine and flavours has been demonstrated in numerous guest appearances aboard P&O Cruises and for companies including Westfield, Domayne, Talking Lifestyle and the Sydney Royal Easter Show.

Always one to balance multiple jobs and businesses, Chef Daniel brought the concept of “Pop Up Dinners” to the Central Coast and runs the successful onsite catering company Fork’N’Knife.  Fork’N’Knife’s signature style of catering is centred around bringing people together.  Daniel’s passion for food is shown in every aspect of what he creates.  The Foodie community has been created so that this passion can be shared with everyone.
