Luke's in Kingston
- icey Jun 16, 2009 06:08 AM
I just read an article in Toronto Life about a young 18 year old chef in Kingston who is apparently turning some heads with the calibre of his cooking at such a young age.
I tried to search the board for some information but it seems a little outdated. Has anyone been to Luke's lately?
Apparently, LUke has a voracious appetite to learn as much as possible when it comes to food and he is a big proponent of using every part of the animal from nose to tail.
Chowhound was even mentioned in the article, so I was wondering what your opinions were.

I would be put off buying a meal by a cook claiming to be a vegatarian, and offering meat specialties in his kitchen. Is he really "Chef Luke" without prep cooks?
He was pretentious and self centered on a CBC interview, certainly propped up by family, and I hope he does well, after he experiences kitchens in other cities. And maybe an apprenticeship.
As someone who is currently profiling Luke in a documentary, I can all tell you that Luke is definitely not a vegetarian. He briefly considered it a few years ago but again, today he is NOT a vegetarian. However, he is strongly against the animal cruelty that goes on to continuously create cheap, excessive meat for the human population. He applies his belief in respecting animals when procuring meat for his restaurant.
