THE NOMADIC CHEF
Mister Banks is a personal chef and sommelier. He's tall, friendly and affordable.
Lucas Banks loves food and travel. Educated at Le Cordon Bleu London, he has since worked in kitchens on three continents. While he is most comfortable in front of the stove, his varied background also includes stints as a restaurant manager, sommelier and catering director. His food reflects those places he has spent the most time: the Pacific Northwest and the Deep South. Think rustic mountain lodge meets home-style comfort food with special emphasis on fresh, local and wholesome ingredients. Chef Mister Banks truest passion is creating delicious freestyle dishes that put a healthy spin on traditional comfort food.

How it works
Generally , I’ll come up with a proposed menu the week before and send it to you for approval. The day of my visit, I do food shopping at the Dekalb Farmers Market (or your preferred grocer) and head to your home to begin cooking. Usually that lasts about four hours depending on the menu. Each meal portion is packaged separately (unless you specify family style packaging) and left in your refrigerator. I do the dishes and leave detailed reheating instructions.
