Imagine if you will, an evening where you are free from deciding which restaurant to drive to; liberated from the inevitable waiting list that is associated with fine dining along the Emerald Coast.  What if you could enjoy a nice, casual five-course meal in your own dining room, without the worry of driving, shopping, cooking, or clean-up?  Enter Jekyll – A Private Chef.


Chef Jekyll is a licensed private chef specializing in Local Seafood, Italian and Southern Comfort cuisines.  His clients include private individuals, businesses and families in Destin and throughout the Emerald Coast region of Northwest Florida.

Having returned to Destin in 2011 after his military career, Chef Jekyll has cultivated the local roots that were planted here 35 years ago among the emerald seas and white sands.  Inspired by his travels around the world and residence on three continents, this established entrepreneur has honed his culinary skills to a fine edge.

Magical!  The best word to describe the dinner Chef Jekyll provided for our family while visiting the Pensacola area.  From booking the dinner to final clean-up after it was complete, every detail was attended to with professionalism and class.  Can’t wait to visit the area again and have him work his magic for us!

Chef Jekyll cooked an amazing dinner for four of us last night. We can’t say enough about the flavor and perfection of the food itself. Our kitchen is designed so we could sit and watch much of the prep and presentation of the food. That in itself added a wonderful touch. Finally, Chef Jekyll himself made the dinner special. His genuine passion and attention to detail for what he brings to your table is flawless. We will be doing this again soon. Can’t say enough good about the whole experience.
