James Beard Award winning Chef Tory Miller and Deja Food Group announced that Chef Elizabeth Dahl has joined their team as pastry chef of Graze and L’Etoile. Alongside her husband Tim Dahl, she owned the acclaimed capitol square restaurant Nostrano that garnered praise from local and national critics, earning Dahl a James Beard semifinalist nomination for Outstanding Pastry Chef. Dahl worked for several years in some of Chicago’s top restaurants, including Boka, NAHA, and Charlie Trotter’s before moving to Madison to work at Restaurant Magnus.
“I’ve been a huge fan of Elizabeth’s cooking for a while now, and I’m beyond excited to have her talents in the kitchen at both Graze and L’Etoile,” says Chef Miller
With her years of experience, Dahl brings a learned and creative eye to the pastry programs at Graze and L’Etoile. She’ll craft rustic sweets like cookies, cakes, and pies at Graze while focusing on more refined desserts at L’Etoile, both menus taking advantage of local seasonal ingredients.
