Double dose from Daniel's

One of my family's favorite restaurants is Daniel's. Recently, I had a graduation party at my home, and I served Chicken Marsala from Daniel's. My guests from out of this area asked if they would be willing to share the recipe. -- D.A., via the Internet

A popular spot in western Wake County for nearly 15 years, Daniel's (1430 N.C. 55, Apex; 303-1006; will soon be aiming to win new fans. Owners Daniel and Janet Perry plan to open a second Daniel's this spring in Fuquay-Varina. In the meantime, now that the Perrys have shared their recipes for Chicken Marsala and Chocolate Truffle Cake, a sampling of the Daniel's experience is as near as your own kitchen.
