Introduction: My name is Chef T. L. Hooker and I have been in the restaurant and hospitality industry for 22 years. My experience is wide ranging, originally from El Paso TX my heart and soul is Mexican cuisine but my favorite type of food to make has to be French. I like taking influences from Asian cuisine and utilize the techniques to create compelling flavor and taste profiles. My time in Homer Alaska taught me the fine art of seafood and the amazing flavors they produce. I was mentored by high caliber, integrity driven chefs most recently at the Dallas Country Club where I fine tuned my skills that has now taken me to the personal chef industry where I am fully grateful and satisfied working with my clients to provide memorable meals and relationships that transcend food.

The charcuterie board he prepared was just the right mix of meat, cheeses and fruit, and his smoked salmon was one of the best I've ever eaten.
