Who is Lukarla McCready?
A natural in the kitchen since she first turned her hand to cooking, Lukarla’s professional journey started front of house as a waitress at 16. She thrived on the pressure and was quickly asked to assist in the kitchen. It wasn’t long before Lukarla found she was doing more and more of the cooking as her natural talent started to shine.
Lukarla doesn’t do things because they’re easy, she does them because they’re right. This integrity has helped her hold her course, and has built her reputation in the business community as a trustworthy professional. Today you’ll still find her working late into the night, but she balances this with time off with her family and friends. She knows she can trust her staff to steer the course she has set and this allows her to escape to a tropical destination and remove herself for a week or two.
Lukarla loves food; she finds it almost impossible to choose her favourite dish! From spicy Mexican to rich Italian she can’t think of anything more pleasurable than indulging with friends and family. Her dream holiday would be a food world tour; travelling and tasting the gourmet delights of every country.
“Outstanding effort from Lukarla and her staff. Catering a fully gluten free party is a tough ask for anyone, but they handled it without any problem. Had glowing comments about the food all day.
Could not recommend them highly enough.”
