Chef Bio

Born and raised in Parkdale, Chef Michelle has always loved helping grandma in the kitchen after school. Those days of flour coated cheeks and steamy pots on the stove inspired her to love all things food. Chef Michelle attended Oregon State University, graduating with a degree in Animal Science and Food Technology. Her focus on animal food products has given her the knowledge and experience of meat, dairy and food science. 

After college, Chef Michelle worked at a large food manufacturing company in production, supplier and R&D roles. This experience allowed Chef Michelle to travel the world and experience cuisines and cooking techniques that were previously unknown.

Chef Michelle currently works at a local fruit packing house here in Hood River and has just completed her Master's degree in Food Science from Washington State University. 

Dani Annala found a passion for food early in life while tending gardens and enjoying quality meals with family. Growing up in the Pacific Northwest specifically the Columbia River Gorge instilled a passion for food. She currently resides in Hood River, Oregon with her husband and two children on a family-owned pear orchard that her husband manages. Dani attended Oregon State University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture Business Management and General Agriculture, A Master of Agriculture with a major in Agriculture Education and minors in Agriculture Resource Economics and Animal Science. Dani opened Dani’s Kitchen Shop in 2019 as a creative outlet focused on custom sugar cookies. Dani’s Kitchen Shop has grown into a fulltime custom cookie business and is expanding into kitchen education offering classes focused on inspiring the home chef.
