Have you met Chef Jeremy?
Chef Jeremy just had his one year anniversary at the girl & the fig last month. He and John have been collaborating on some really wonderful menu items, including the chicken livers on toast, soft shell crabs served with pancetta aioli and his personal favorite of the moment, the Pork Belly Sandwich. (Yes, it is almost possible to gain weight just by reading this!) However, it is the seasonal ingredients and the farm that are still the driving the inspiration for the menu.
Here is a sneak peek behind the Chef — When he is not cooking for himself, he is a sucker for a cheap BUT GOOD burger (we’re not talking about fast food here): a thin patty, seared and topped with 1000 Island Dressing, Tabasco Sauce, iceberg lettuce, tomato, and (of course) BACON! However lowbrow his burger cravings may be, his beverages of choice are varied from dark beers to smooth rye whiskies and red Rhone blends. When he is not working, you can find Jeremy riding his motorcycle or snowboarding while listening to Pink Floyd and Bad Religion.We are lucky to have such a talented Chef on our team. The smile you see in the picture above is something I get to see all of the time! Say hi to Chef Jeremy the next time you visit us!
