After nearly 7 years as Chef de Cuisine for Salthouse Catering, Jake Stone has worked his way up to the position of Executive Chef. He manages every aspect of our kitchen operation from menu planning, costing, ordering and providing leadership to the culinary team.
Jake’s interest in food began while watching his grandmother cook over an open hearth at her home in North Carolina Raised with a close connection to the land, Jake has a deep understanding of the hard work a farmer endures to bring food to the table. His father is Master Beekeeper who packages his Wagram Apiary honey for retail.
Jake’s only love greater than cooking is his love for his family. The young father of three has an understanding of the patience required for leading a large staff, which makes his temperament essential to the catering operation.
Jake fosters a great team spirit with his continued optimism and creative approach to cooking. Jake fuses his background in fine dining with his love of comfort food to provide an innovative spin on catering menus.
Oh, and he LOVES ice cream.
