Danielle Panarello, Director of Operations  |  danielle@sodelconcepts.com

Danielle was born and raised in Media Pennsylvania. She enjoyed cooking as a young person but despite being urged by her father to pursue a degree in the culinary arts decided on a more practical path, attending the University of Delaware where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice. Throughout college Danielle worked in local restaurants and relocated to Rehoboth Beach where there was a vibrant, if small, restaurant scene. It was during this time that she decided to finally drop everything and attend The Restaurant School in Philadelphia where she received a degree in cooking and baking.

Danielle has worked as  pastry chef for local restaurant icons Lala Land, The Back Porch Café, and Eden. During her twelve year tenure at Eden she also became the director of operations and events coordinator. Danielle lives in Rehoboth Beach with her husband George.
