Custom Desserts by Pastry Chef, Dani Veit
Hailing from Miami, FL, Dani Veit entered the culinary world as an extension of her creativity. Making a name for herself as a portrait artist for a decade, she switched to a career that placed her right next to a mixer. Her first break was 10 years ago in Nashville, TN with James Beard award-winning restaurant group, Strategic Hospitality, hired on by then culinary director Jason Brumm, who, by the way, saw her at a deli and asked if she wanted a job not knowing skill level or interest in sugar. She quickly rose to Executive Pastry Chef at Merchant’s, a staple on Lower Broadway. She soaked up every bit of information; from the dishwasher to acclaimed local & international chefs. Soon she was in charge of the pastry programs for other Strategic restaurants such as Le Sel, Pinewood Social, The Spot, & Strategic catering. Dani moved on to be the Executive Pastry Chef & Social Media Manager at The Old School Farm to Table, in Nashville, TN where she utilized only the freshest ingredients and works within the parameters that nature sets.
Dani is now the Pastry Chef at GG’s Waterfront and oversees the dessert menu as well as making custom pastries for weekend brunches at the restaurant and creating special occasion cakes and confections for parties and the general public.
