"New American with a Southern and Caribbean Influence."

 

Chef David Thomas was born in Philadelphia, but spent the majority of his life in Houston, Texas. It was there that he decided to be a chef at 14 years old. He fell in love with the kitchen by way of community service, as a means to stay out of trouble as a teen. He met his mentor, Joseph Hopkins, at a soup kitchen, and continued to work for him in the years to follow. He takes inspirations from his grandmother, Chef Joseph, and having travelled with circuses along the way. Southern Fusion is his favorite cuisine, and his favorite thing to cook is a Collard Green Soup, that has been passed down through his family for generations. His favorite dish to cook for CookUnity is inspired by his grandmother: Chicken Meatballs and Spaghetti Squash Primavera.

I did not like the sauce, which had solidified into a tar-like substance

It is okay. Portion is on the small size.

Awesome. The noodle was great but the pork chop was amazing!

Michelle

Delicious flavor but portion (chicken) a little small... also this seems like it would have been perfect with rice (not potato). Potato was a little under-cooked.

Nancy

Delicious

I liked that it was low-cal, but it’s not my favorite salmon from CookUnity. We didn’t think the flavors worked so well with the salmon. Good but not great.

Arturo

Delicious!

Amanda

Dish was amazing. Flavorful with a little kick due to the jerk. Will definitely order this again

Sam
06/04/2018

Really yummy with great rich flavors. Portion size is large and very heavy. Not an every night type of meal, but a nice occasional splurge. The coconut rice is amazing - I could eat that forever.

Muriel
05/28/2018

Loved the cod and bok choy but could do without so much rice. More bok choy and less rice would have made this perfect.

Carla
05/27/2018

I cant even begin to say how delicious this dinner is.. Im so happy I got 2! Please make this a standard.. amazing thx

Jane

Scrumptious! Perfectly prepared, so flavorful, satisfying, and HEALTHY! Cod can be a bland tasteless fish if not prepared by someone with creative cooking chops. This piece was thick, tender, DELICIOUS, and perfect!

Really good flavors blend well. Quite excited to have eaten it wasn't sure what to expect. The polenta took a little longer than expected to heat up but it was yummy. I'd reorder.

Cook Unity, you always make me look good. I used one of your 3fer offers to check out the lamb and wasn't disappointed. My dinner guest loved it all, especially the celery root. (The chocolates were fun, too, though we were hoping for cookies.)

Debbie

I generally stay away from fish for home delivery, No more. The texture was perfect. The sesame bok choy was a little spicy for my personal taste, but the rice was sublime.

03/11/2018

I will order this again.

Absolutely delicious and filling. Definitely doesn’t need to be so salty though.

Dee

Danielle

Frances
01/29/2018

Ashley

Thought it would come with tomato sauce. Dried tomatoes were a bit overbearing

When I received my stewed ox tails, I was hoping to see chunks of ox tails as shown in the picture. However, I was disappointed to find that instead of chunks there was only a mushy mess of meat. The stew had a strong flavor but it was just ok. It also looked nothing like the above picture which I was also disappointed by. The rice was a good compliment to the stew but I thought the kidney beans that were on the rice was just too much and did not add much flavor to it.

Andrea
12/05/2017

Really flavorful, quite good!

12/01/2017

Perfect

12/01/2017

Winner!

This is the best!

So flavorful! The sauces and spices were amazing! The dressing on the salad was incredible - I wanted more! The sauce for the salmon was really interesting, and the salmon itself was covered in spices and cooked to perfection. Highly recommend this unique dish!

Gregorio

Annie

Alyssa

The flavor was good but I wish it was displayed to us that the meat loaf was mostly rice.. I was disappointed by this.
