Growing up in a Family where the smell of food and the sizzle of pans constantly stimulated the senses at every family gathering, it wasn’t long before I started to pick up and learn the craft. As a kid I started as a pint sized Sous chef peeling seafood and chopping seasoning and after I began memorizing family recipes I eventually graduated to cooking dishes and creating recipes of my own. Creole and Cajun cuisine is always based in tradition of spice & very rich flavors. While these dishes are delicious they are not always the best for your body in their traditional forms. This inspired me to create amazing recipes for foods that I grew up enjoying but creating them with a health conscious twist. Healthy versions of traditional New Orleans recipes without sacrificing taste! http://www.cajunfood4thought.com http://www.myneworleans.com/Blogs/Haute-Plates/July-2016/The-Times-Are-Changing/

We had a great time with Chef Tuck. We also had guest from Great Britain which were a delight to spend time with. I would recommend all New Orleans visitors to plan on making a visit to Chef Tuck's.

What a fabulous experience! My husband and two children (ages 18 and 13) attended while visiting NOLA and while we weren't sure exactly what to expect, we were thrilled with the evening. Tuck and Dionna could not have been lovelier hosts and made it all so enjoyable from the second we walked in the door. It was fun to be in a NOLA neighborhood and a personal home, after so many meals in another restaurant. And bringing children, we were not sure what to expect but being the perfect hosts, they provided a little something for everyone. For example, some were playing pool, while others were gathered around a fascinating show in Hurricane Katrina, while others mingled. Not only was dinner delicious and typically cajun which was fun, but the experience of having personal connections with people from all over the country is what really set this evening and experience apart from all others. In a world today where everyone is 'too busy' and trapped by their phones, this allowed us to really connect with other interesting, kind and smart people in the most authentic way. It was a great message for our children too to 'think outside the box' and try something new. We all loved it and highly recommend this experience for all ages. Can't wait to dine from Tucks new food truck when we're next in NOLA. Thank you!

I enjoyed my experience dining with Chef Tuck and his family! His home is beautiful, and he and his wife Dionne made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. I had the pleasure of dining at the kitchen counter and watching Chef Tuck prepare the meal. The food was flavorful and fulfilling. The cornbread and pecan pie are to be remembered! Although it was too cold to spend time outside, I did get to take a look around the backyard. They have a lovely pool and outdoor oven that would have been fun to relax beside, so future guests should look forward to that. I would dine with Chef Tuck again, and I look forward to recommending this experience to others!
