DaChef was amazing. From helping select a menu to executing dinner. He created a beautiful souvenir menu with great graphics on it. We had a Caribbean theme and he knocked it out the park! The food was amazing full of flavored perfectly seasoned… And Chef was incredibly entertaining. He made our anniversary perfect. I would highly recommend DaChef to anyone looking for a personal chef!

We loved our personal chef experience with Chef Luke. We hired him for our wedding dinner, just 7 people (one of which was a vegetarian). Choosing the menu, and Luke's proposal for each course was customized and delicious, it was also very easy to accommodate the menu for our vegetarian guest. Every dish was extraordinarily well executed, and everyone loved it! Highly recommend him and would definitely work with him again for other projects!

Where do I even begin on this review. First thing is that this was our first time having a personal chef. I didn’t know what to do and didn’t know what menu to put together. I contacted another chef that gave me a few menu options. It seemed overwhelming. I was never contacted back. I kept getting alerts with Chef TL Hooker’s info and others. I contacted Chef TL and all I had to do was contact him, give him an address and pay. I’m 6 hours away so all I could do was trust what he said. I explained this was an anniversary dinner and I just wanted it special. He stated in contact with me. He came down to my level because I didn’t even know food items he was talking about. He was on time and brought everything with him. He even sanitized the kitchen area. We were so impressed. He works so clean. He was neat and professional. The food was sooooo good and I mean it. I wasn’t aware he was even going to bring his own dishes. He brought a 5star restaurant to us. I highly recommend for any event. Also, last minute because of an iodine reaction we had to change the menu. We were given several choices and I’m glad it was changed. We enjoyed the sea bass. Very professional. Exceeded expectations. This is an experience that I will drive 6 hours to come back for only if Chef TL is our chef. I don’t even want to try another. You will not be disappointed. God Bless you chef and your business.
