From humble beginnings cooking on the line to creating his own brand in Black Bear Bread Co., Destin native Phil McDonald’s adult life has been centered around the kitchen. Past ventures include Table Five, a private chef + catering company that specialized in private dinner parties, boutique catering, and underground farm dinners. Table Five ultimately helped pioneer and inspire the thriving private chef movement on the Emerald Coast. Always honing his craft, Phil has cooked alongside some of the most elite chefs in the country from New York City to San Francisco. When not at work, Phil can be found playing with his three young children or surfing the latest swell.
