Daniel Lindsey is a native to Napa, California and knew he wanted to be a baker since he was a toddler. After working in bakeries to the north of San Francisco, including Emporio Rulli, he saved enough money to attend the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, where he graduated second in his class with High Honors. After graduating, Daniel returned to the Bay Area to focus on bread baking at Della Fattoria in Petaluma and Model Bakery in Napa. Daniel moved to Las Vegas to continue refining his pastry skills at large hotels like the Cosmopolitan (STK), Mandalay Bay (RM Seafood), the Hard Rock Hotel (Culinary Dropout), and Caesar's Palace (Old Homestead and Caesar's Palace bakeshop). In 2016, Daniel returned to California and joined the team at Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates in Sacramento where he became the Pastry Sous Chef and eventually Executive Pastry Chef. In his spare time, he likes trying his hand at woodworking and bakes breads and pizza in the wood fired brick oven he designed and built himself.
