Teddy Danielson Owner/Founder

Teddy started Taking Pure Joy LLC after her return from Florence, Italy, where she studied culinary under Marcella Ansaldo. Throughout her travels and childhood, she developed a deep appreciation for the universal way in which meals bring people together. That appreciation is what guided her to start our project and is what guides her to this day.
