Chef Luke’s cooking career and passion for food, like most chef’s sprouted at a very young age influenced by his father creating food memories for him. Creating memories and unforgettable dining experiences is an obsession of his! There are so many wonderful foods to indulge in, but Luke truly considers himself a beef-centered chef. His years of working in the meat department and butchering steer for a private party gave him an intimate knowledge of cuts. This isimportant because if you don't know the cut, then you cannot cook it properly or achieve the best taste - which is the priority.
Chef Luke’s cooking career and passion for food, like most chef’s sprouted at a very young age. As a child he remembers his father planning meals days ahead of time and working hard to get to the weekend where his father could then execute his food wishes. Sunday steaks were a staple. It took a while to understand but his father was creating food memories. That idea of creating food memories and unforgettable dining experiences is a driving force in Luke’s life and a true obsession!
There are so many wonderful foods to indulge in, but Luke truly considers himself a beef centered chef. His years of working in the meat department and butchering whole steers for a private party gave him an intimate knowledge of cuts. This is important because if you don’t know the cut then you cannot cook it proper. His passion for the outdoors and time preparing meals at a hunt club also influences his cooking interests. Wild game is also a mainstay for Luke, as he feels “Wild game is food in its purest form”.
All of this contributed to Luke’s passionate choice to start his private chef service here in the Northwoods. This is when he and his staff arrive at your home or place of choice and execute your private dining experience. Every detail is planned and buttoned up weeks prior to the dinner, so all you must do is sit back and enjoy your friends and family. If that thought wasn’t enough, he brings his own commercial kitchen on wheels to aid in some of the preparation, as well table-side presentations and flare to really awe and elevate your private experience. Luke and his staff book up very quickly and typically a year out. If you wish to have a memorable private dining experience, you can contact Chef Luke directly.
