A Few Words

About Chef Daniela Craciun


My passion for cooking began in Romania as a little girl hanging around my mother in the kitchen, curious of how the food made it from ingredients to dishes on the table. I loved everything from rolling cabbage leaves and stuffing peppers to making doughnuts and spaetzle. In 1999, I ventured to the city of Bologna located in Italy, known as the pasta capital, where I started my formal training in Northern Italian cuisine.

For eight years, I operated a Naples, FL, restaurant that featured homemade breads and popular dishes such as chicken paprikash, spaetzle, schnitzel, and old-fashioned cabbage rolls. Now I have turned my attention to catering and to serving the community as a private chef.

After 30 years of cooking experience and overcoming many of my own obstacles with allergies and dietary needs, I realized there was a need to combine fresh gourmet taste, with natural healing superfoods so that people can still enjoy delicious choices but incorporate specialty ingredients that have a long list of health benefits. Today, as a private chef and certified health nutritional consultant, I enjoy growing many of my own fresh ingredients to bring healthy foods to local markets and homes in the Southwest Florida area.

Our Inspiration

Meet Collier Fruit Growers


I receive much of my gardening inspiration and knowledge from this amazing group of people. I’m especially grateful to Crafton Clift and Rodger Taylor who I lovingly call my Grandfathers because they are generously teaching me everything I need to  know about all organic, pesticide free, healthy gardening. Instead of asking Google for advice I turn to my two wise grandfathers Crafton & Rodger. With their help I have planted over 100 trees and am creating a native garden to give back to the butterfly, bees and insect community because without them we can’t have fruits and vegetables and our planet will not survive.

In the Community

Giving Back and Supporting


I am not only passionate about gardening, healthy living and teaching people how to take charge of their health through healthy food but I am also passionate about helping others and giving back to the community whenever I can. I have a big heart filled with compassion when it comes to advocating for children and helping women in need, the homeless, and the animals of earth. I am proud believer of equality for all and I strive show love to the community – and as a Business Alliance member, I have stepped up to sponsor the Naples Pride Event for many, many years! This incredible organization began at Daniela’s Restaurant in Naples by my sister Cory many years ago and is one of my greatest joys.
