SPOKANE, Wash. — Private dining is about to change in the Interior Northwest.

A new app, launching later this month, seeks to bring together chefs and people who want a unique dining experience at home.

Bookoo Chef, a Spokane-based team of service industry and marketing professionals, is creating the app to revolutionize the way consumers eat at home in the post-COVID-19 landscape.

“The industry has changed so rapidly over the last few years,” said Matt Goodwin, owner of The Goodwin Group, “From pivot to home catering during the initial lockdown to the fallout from the Great Resignation, the catering landscape has changed forever. But people still want the dining experience, and Bookoo Chef offers a truly entertaining and amazing alternative.

The group behind the app hopes it will provide a special experience for foodies, but also for chefs.

“No matter how much you love your job, kitchen work is brutal. This means you are away from your family more than five nights a week. With Bookoo, chefs can set their own availability, working only one night a month if they choose,” said Justin O’Neill, private chef and corporate account manager at Spiceology.

Bookoo Chef will launch its full app and website on March 15. More information can be found here.
