About Danielle Keene;
For Danielle, creating gourmet desserts and ice cream has been a passion, a career and a tradition. She grew up in a dessert loving home where her mother made chocolate chip root beer floats and oatmeal cookies. At 17, Danielle began scooping ice cream at Baskin Robbins, and from there she moved onwards and upwards. After training at Water Grill, Campanile and A.O.C. she was pastry chef for several top Los Angeles restaurants—The Little Door, Blair’s, and BLT Steak. As opening pastry chef at Wilshire Restaurant she started the very popular “Ice Cream Shoppe Night” which received accolades by L.A. Times food critic S. Irene Virbila. In 2005, Danielle was honored when Los Angeles Magazine dubbed her bread pudding “Best of Los Angeles.”
“There’s something special about dessert,” Danielle says. “At any point, on any day, dessert can put a smile on your face. No matter what age you are, it can make you feel like a kid again.”
In her free time Danielle enjoys watching episodes of “The Office” with her boyfriend Mikey, long walks on the beach with her cat lola and eating her way through the city she was born and raised in, Los Angeles.
