We had the good fortune of connecting with Chef Michelle Daniels and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Chef Michelle, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor in my success and the success of my brand this far, has been my support system. My friends, family, American Legion Post 65 family, community at large and most importantly the guests/customers that tell others about All About Food.

When you have others that believe in what you do as much as you do, it is a blessing and a gift. A gift that you treat with respect and gratitude. Never taking for granted. Iam grateful for each and every person that has supported All About Food

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
All About food is a small comfort food kitchen located inside of the American Legion Post 65. We also do catering, private events and personal chef. What sets us apart from others, I feel is the passion and love we have for food and providing the best food and service we can on a consistent basis. If we falter we are quick to recover and make it right. I am most proud of our community who supported us during the heavy part of the pandemic last year. We were able to stay open and take care of our community.

This business is challenging and I could not have made it this far without sound advice from my family and mentors . When challenges arise, and they have. You must take a step back to analyze the situation and prepare to be as proactive as you can vs reactive. Know your business and always be a student of your craft . Some of the lessons I have learned: never over promise. Under promise and over deliver. Sometimes you have to say no. I it sacrifices your brand, integrity or your peace, say no! Hire an a accountant.

I want the world to know that All About Food is a promising and growing brand rooted in South Phoenix, AZ. We are not locked into any cuisine and take pride in our ability to cook different cuisines. Although we have many people from all over the country here that say there is no good soul food in AZ they hav not tried us! Our story is simple .. All About Food “All About You”!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We would first wake up and hav bunch a on of the many bunch spots in Az. Hash Kitchen or maybe Breakfast B#$%h!

Take a drive to Sedona or the Grand Canyon spend a day or two

On Friday we would bar crawl in the Roosevelt Row District.

Saturday relax pool side at one of our many resorts I love Talking Stick that night we get loose and play in h casino or visit the cigar lounge.

Sunday we would relax and then head over to American Legion Post 65 to hear Vaughn Willis with Eye Candy an enjoy he best catfish in the valley with All About Food !
