My extensive traveling and  culinary resume has given me a unique perspective on what makes for a successful food-based venture. I've been fortunate to work with a wide range of interesting companies, from Fortune 500 brands to non-profits and local chains. [I.E., brand endorsement, recipe development, product formulation, event planning, food styling and media]

I love projects that require innovation. If you have an interesting concept that needs a fresh new approach, please contact me below.

Testimonials

Whole Foods Market has worked with Chef Tu this past year. We are extremely proud to have Chef Tu as one of our Whole Foods Market Ambassadors. Chef Tu’s approach to focus on the freshest and best ingredients, while blending his Asian heritage flavors, is what attracted us to him. Once Chef Tu started working with our culinary team, it was effortless. Most recently, Chef Tu was part of the “Art of Grilling” program, where he created a Vietnamese Lemongrass Sausage to sell in our meat counter. Needless to say, the Vietnamese Lemongrass Sausage flew out of our stores and were a huge success! We look forward to our continued partnership with Chef Tu.

It was a pleasure working with Chef Tu to design our Tumami burger at Creator. His extensive knowledge of flavors and food science was invaluable as we endeavored to perfect and scale recipes. Tu was also an instant fit with our interdisciplinary team of engineers, fabricators, and cooks, going out of his way to help our teams understand the physics sauces. The Tumami Burger became an instant hit. We’re proud to have worked with him on it and look forward to future collaborations.

The only thing better than working with Chef Tu David Phu is getting to sit down and enjoy a meal prepared by him. For those of us at Intersport, we’re proud to say we undertook and enjoy both experiences to the fullest. Chef Tu became an instrumental and indispensable resource in the production of Taste Buds: Chefsgiving both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. His enthusiasm knows no bounds and his willingness to lend a hand in helping us cast the show and refine the idea truly aided us in producing a successful program that aired on ABC. We are already seeking new projects to work on with Chef Tu and can’t wait to see the results.

Chef Tu has been a contributing chef on ChefsFeed for the last two years. In that time he has collaborated with us in several significant ways, from an appearance in My Hood espousing the best spots in Oakland, to working on an innovative brand campaign with us and our partners at Morton Salt. He’s consistently been a collaborative, enthusiastic, and supportive contributor to ChefsFeed both in our aforementioned video work, in social media campaigns, and events. We’re happy he’s part of the ChefsFeed family and look forward to his further contributions.
