What attracted you to working at Jester King?
My background in Wildlife Biology and Culinary Arts is strongly rooted in values connected to our land and environment. I share these same core values as Jester King through our passion of terroir.
What does our philosophy of “time, place and people” mean to you?
Jester King's philosophy of time, place, people are all profoundly connected to the environment of our kitchen. Our sense of time represents our focus on procuring quality seasonal ingredients. We represent our values of place and people by working with local producers and collaborating with brewery production to provide a broad connection with our environment.
What do you love most about working at Jester King?
I like working in a collaborative environment built on teamwork and innovation. I am honored to be part of a community that supports individual growth and advocates for social justice both in the workplace and in the broader community.
WHAT ARE A FEW OF YOUR FAVORITE JESTER KING BEERS? A FEW OF YOUR FAVORITE FOOD MENU ITEMS?
My absolute favorite Jester King beer is Snorkel. Snorkel focuses on the umami flavor component brewed with oyster mushrooms and smoked sea salt.
Some of my favorite food menu items are from our recent smoked foods program including Berkshire brown sugar glazed St. Louis ribs, smoked tomato basil soup, and grilled cheese from our bakery with herb goat cheese.
My current favorite pizza (constantly changing with new items) is the vegan pie, The Cornucopia, made with butternut squash puree, kale, onion, Granny Smith apples, toasted pecans, and fall spices. Honestly, anything from our bakery won't make it far without me sampling.
