Cabaret Chef Spotlight: Chef Daniel Blake Oftedal

As the Cabaret nears, we’ll be highlighting the amazing and talented individuals who will be providing our entertainment for the evening.

It’s really no surprise that Chef Dan would one day be an executive chef for one of Fresno’s finest restaurants, Dave Fansler’s Yosemite Ranch.

As a young boy, Chef could be found standing in the kitchen on a step-stool, helping his Nana and Papa make foods like French toast, rigatoni, or chopping horseradish until his eyes were beet red to make the family’s famous sauce. Starting as a busboy, Chef worked his way up to a line cook. There he learned many secrets and tricks of the trade. It was then he realized he loved cooking, so in the spring of 2003, Chef Dan headed to San Francisco, where he attended The California Culinary Academy. In 2005, Chef Dan graduated with an Associate of Occupational Studies degree at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts.

The Cabaret will take place on September 7th at 6:00 pm. Tickets are available in the church office or after church on Sunday!
