Danielle (Barranco) Wheeler - Founder

Danielle opened HOME Catering in 2002 and has since expanded with  Maison Cuisine. Being of French-Italian descent, cooking was not a chore growing up, it was a lifestyle! Danielle graduated with a culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu/ Cooking & Hospitality Institute of Chicago. She also holds a degree in Interior Design, which allows for the most innovative displays of food! Being a gluten-free vegan, she understands the difficulty of eating at events sometimes, so she has started to focus on creating menus for guests with alternative diets & allergies.
