Jason is Executive Chef at the de Young Museum’s café. He embarked on his culinary career 15 years ago in his home state of Connecticut, where his passion for all things culinary developed. He remembers taking walks to nearby farms to pick up tomatoes, corn, potatoes, and summer and winter squash. Later, while living in The Bronx, NY, Jason’s first mentor, Chef Riad Aamar, introduced him to Arthur Avenue. Traveling there to pick up provisions for the week, he said, was “the first time I made the connection between the people and the land.” This connection has shaped the way Jason cooks in San Francisco, his home for the last 11 years. He lets the seasons dictate the menus. “We Chefs are fortunate to live in such a food-centric city,” he said. “With Clement Street, Japan Town, and the many farmers’ markets around the city, flavor is never hard to find!”
