Daniel Hoyer first learned to cook as a young boy by helping his two grandmothers in the kitchen. By the time he was a teenager, he began working in restaurants, and he supported himself in college-where he studied preveterinary medicine-by cooking. He finally followed his love of cooking to make his career as a chef. His stint as sous chef for Mark Miller's Coyote Cafe inspired his interest in Mexican and Latin American cuisine.
Chef Daniel has traveled extensively in Mexico, exploring the cooking, as well as the history and culture, of that colorful country. He is currently a restaurant consultant, cooking-school instructor, and guide for gastronomic-adventure tours in Mexico. Daniel also authored the cookbook Culinary Mexico: Authentic Recipes and Traditions. He resides in Pilar, New Mexico, with his family.
