a person preparing food in a kitchen

Dan 🇲🇽

Born in Los Angeles to parents from Mexico, Daniel Dorado’s love of cooking can be traced back to his earliest years, working as a line cook alongside his older brother and Sunday dinners cooked by his abuelita. During college, Dan worked in restaurants and also realized that his love of food was much bigger than his love of communications, so he decided to pursue cooking full-time. He moved to NYC and eventually landed the position of Head Chef at Ilili. There, he was introduced to Middle Eastern spices and techniques, completely transforming the way he cooks and creates dishes.
