Chef John hit all of the right flavors! He was very professional, easy going, and full of personality, Highly recommend!!
Chef John started his culinary journey at 14 years old, washing dishes and bussing tables. At 15 he moved up to making pizzas and by 18 he was a closing manager and could prepare every dish on the menu. He spent the next 7 years travelling from restaurant to restaurant, apprenticing and learning his craft from a variety of excellent chefs. At 25 he accepted his first “executive chef” position. And over the next 25+ years he has prepared meals for two presidents, one first lady, several world diplomats and handfuls of famous athletes and musicians. In his career he has been an executive chef, personal chef for a sorority house, resident chef at an art museum, has written a cookbook, worked as the director of training for a company and most recently as the resident culinary instructor with a national culinary store chain. Chef has an associate’s and bachelor’s degree and in his spare time loves to work in his carpentry shop.
Chef John is well versed in cuisine from all over the world. His favorites include: French, Jamaican, Korean, Italian, Spanish, German, Japanese, Mexican and American Regional Specialties. When asked what his favorite meal is, he will usually answer: “Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Pigeon Peas, Coconut Rice…”
