Chef of the year
Chef Louie Danegelis Chefs' & Cooks Culinary Club of Wisconsin, Inc.
2007 Chef of the Year LOUIE DANEGELIS

On Sunday November 4, 2007 Chef Louie was presented with the 2007 Chef of the Year Award at Westmoor Country Club.  Louie's culinary interest first formed as a young boy working in his father's restaurant in Chicago on Commission Row.  He later attended cooking school in Madison and Milwaukee.  After his formal training he went to work for several prestigious restaurants, country clubs and caterers in the Metro Milwaukee area.

In 1972 Louie went on to become Chef Instructor at WCTC.  His students were always inspired when they saw his passion.  In 1986 Louie retired from teaching and with his wife Lisa, started Lee John's Catering.  In 1991 Louie achieved one of his goals of becoming a certified Chef Educator and a certified Executive Chef.  His thirst for knowledge continues and he has developed his own unique style infusing the standards of old world cooking with today's food trends and ethnic flair.

January Wedding, 2013 - "I wanted to thank you for being a part of our daughter’s wedding day. Everything was delicious, beautifully served and the staff courteous. Of course, I know that Lee John’s treats all their clients with the same wonderful service and food, but to me, it was like having family prepare my daughter’s wedding dinner. From the first phone call to the wonderful tasting and goodie bags (my daughter just finished her Louie’s Chef Salt, which she loved) everything was perfect! I have had numerous compliments from family and friends on how delicious everything was. This came not only from family but award-winning, renowned national and international chefs who are our friends and were guests at the wedding; one of them is a chef at the French Consulate in New York! I also heard that you treated vendors to special meals. How kind! But I want you to know how special it was to me to have Chef Louie there that day and how nice it was to see him in the kitchen. Thanks for personalizing the menu and working with us on those special touches such as the cheese course and chocolates. Wishing you all the joys of a very Happy New Year!"
May Wedding, 2012 - "I hired Lee John's because having great food and responsible structure was important to me. I wanted everyone, including myself, to enjoy the celebration. Lee John's did not let me down. I did not need to worry or second guess. All of the details were taken care of and my only job was to enjoy the party. The food reflected exactly what we were looking for and more. As hosting the event - I was so pleased that my guests were delighted with what was served. Thank you!"
December Wedding, 2011 - "Thank you so much for providing the perfect catering experience for our wedding. The service with Lee John's was exceptional!"
Renaissance Theaterworks would like to express sincere appreciation for all that was done to make this year's fundraiser a success.  The staff was terrific and the event ran smoothly.  The food was fabulous as was the awe-inspiring dessert display!  Thank you, we could not have done it without you.
Elaine Eisner - Everything was wonderful.  My Birthday Party was such a special memory!  The food was outstanding.  You are the best!
July Wedding, 2011 - "We've been trying to come up with the words to describe how happy we were with Lee John's and specifically your work on our wedding. From our first tasting, we knew that we'd go with Lee Johns. We thought the food was exquisite but it was your service and efforts to go the extra mile that convinced us to go with Lee Johns. Your service leading up to the event and the day of the event was superb. You handled everything with such grace and we felt no stress at all in regards to the logistics of the wedding. We frankly don't know what we would have done without your help."
Villa Terrace Gala 2011 - "We have heard nothing but raves about the food and service. People are astounded that fish and meat can be so perfectly prepared in a tent! But that goes for everything on our menu. All of it was simply delicious. People like you make the Gala process so much fun for us."

"One guest made the comment that the meal was absolutely the best he'd had in his whole life! (And he's in his 70's.) Many commented on how the hot food was indeed hot! It was unanimous that the servers were perfect - water glasses filled, were available and polite. The whole committee agreed that working with Jessica made it easy for us to look good."

The Sleep Wellness Institute - Our open house was a great success!  Thank you so much for helping us shine.  Your staff was very professional and exceeded my expectations.  I look forward to working with you in the future!
Milwaukee Art Museum Wedding ... Thanks for the amazing food, the incredible service, and thoughtful planning.  It was a pleasure to work with all of you.  Every aspect was perfection.
Wilson Center for the Arts - Thank you so much for the superb job Lee John's Catering did for our winter soiree.  The stations were beautiful and the food delicious.
Mother of the Groom - Wedding at the Eisner Museum - I must say I have been to many affairs, weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, Anniversary Parties etc. and none was done as meticulously and beautifully as this one.  Our guests were so impressed by the quality of the food and the incredible service.
Monica Orr - Dynamic Events - Thanks to all the Lee John's Staff that made our party such a delicious success!  As always, it is such a pleasure working with the best catering company in Milwaukee!
Wedding - We were so pleased with Lee John's, you guys by far exceeded our expectations!  Everybody was raving about the service and food...even the guests who are professional chefs.  We were beyond happy with the service we received, not only the day of our wedding, but through the entire planning process.  Your crew handled the room turn over like pros.  Thanks again for everything.
Hoffman Wedding, 2011 - "The food was just scrumptious, the presentation beautiful, and the service was impeccable. From the first gazpacho shooter to the last s'more, everything was perfect. It was such a magical evening for us."
