Chef/owner, Dawn Buchholz of “Dining in by Dawn Personal Chef Service” has met many wonderful people and worked with food in some interesting ways. She has worked with Celebrity Chef Ryan Scott and managed an award-winning booth at one of the world’s largest annual food events – the National Restaurant Association show in Chicago. However, her most labor intensive work (if you’ll excuse the pun) was serving as a catering team member during the Bay Bridge Labor Day Weekend event in 2009. 600 workers were served 3 meals a day and hundreds of gallons of coffee to sustain them during their 24 hour schedules completing the first phase of the new Bay Bridge connecting Oakland and San Francisco.
