Luke Mackay is a professional chef and cookery writer based in London. His company, ‘Luke Mackay Cooks’ employs talented people who take private cooking to a different level.

“The food was superb — very high quality without being fussy — and much enjoyed and remarked on by all the guests.”
Sebastian Faulks — Private birthday dinner 2009

As seen in ‘The Lady Magazine’ and regularly on BBC Breakfast and Radio Five Live

“There is something special about private cooking — as a chef I love that you have to do everything- design the menu, go shopping, prep, cook and then wash up — I love the control it affords, the sense of accomplishment and the inherent risk… for the client, it is that little bit of affordable luxury – you have a staff!”

Peruse my website, read my blog, take a look at some of my food in the gallery and have a look at the various services that we can offer.

And then, maybe, just maybe, you’ll ask me to cook you dinner, cater for your wedding,  fill your freezer with fantastic food or even teach you how to make a souffle……

Because that’s what this is about really. I want you to choose me above other people offering similar services. And then I want you to do it again. Because you liked it.”
