Our Team

Amazing food made by amazing people.  I consider our chefs to be magicians because with every bite not only do you get amazing flavors, but you taste the love and passion they put into each dish. I am so lucky to have found people who raise the bar for our service each time they cook.

Dana Sicko, Founder / CEO - Dana@GundalowGourmet.com

Why do you love being a personal chef?  I love giving people time back to their week through making healthy food that tastes great.
What is your favorite thing to cook? I love baking cute little bites, like mini cookie sandwiches.
Your idea of a perfect meal? Who is around you, what are you eating, where is the table?  The table is outside and there is a bonfire, I'm surrounded by friends and we are all enjoying a perfect old school playlist.  We are enjoying great cocktails, charcuterie, cheese, and definitely s'mores.

Lauren Schein, Catering Director - Lauren@GundalowGourmet.com

Why do you love being a personal chef? I love cooking and creating menus.  It just makes me happy to be in the kitchen creating something.
What is your favorite thing to cook? I love to make soup or stew that simmers for hours.
Your idea of a perfect meal? It's a small group of six with a delicious braised cut of meat and a full bodied red wine, roasted bleu cheese ricotta butternut squash, and crisp bright green beans.

Blair Jacobs, Personal Chef

Why do you love being a personal chef? I love to see people enjoy their food or even break into a happy dance.|
What is your favorite thing to cook? I am more of a baker, but I like to make sides specifically Mac and Cheese.
Your idea of a perfect meal? Who is around you, what are you eating, where is the table? I love small plates! Little cured meat, a little cheese, fruit, and something pickled - boom you have a feast. My table would be a coffee table surrounded by friends catching up with each other!

Laurie Searfoss, Personal Chef

Why do you love being a personal chef? Simply put, I love to take care of people the best way I know how and that’s by cooking healthy nutritious meals for them. Cooking is how I express gratitude and show love. I guess you can say I was born with the feeding gene.
What is your favorite thing to cook? I absolutely love making soups and stews. Creating layers of flavor in my stock pot is the best way I can express my creativity. Using my spices as an artist would use paint, I create depth of flavor with spices and quality ingredients.
Your idea of a perfect meal? Who’s around you? What are you eating? Where is the table?  My idea of the perfect meal is a bountiful table filled with the simplest of offerings to graze over with good conversation. Offerings like good wine, fresh baguette, French cheeses, and grilled fresh vegetables.  I would be surrounded by passionate foodies and talk about food all evening.  Having a lovely meal outside would be the best setting.
