Chef Spotlight: Jared Lordon – House of 1000 Beers

For this month’s ???? ?????????, we sat down with Jared Lordon, the Chef from House of 1000 Beers. On top of being an amazing Chef, Chef Lordon still makes time to cook for his wife and daughter – “at least five nights a week,” and we had to shine the spotlight on that. Cheers to ???? ??????!

???????? ????: My favorite food is Vincent’s Pizza in Forest Hills. It isn’t the fanciest place in the world but the pizza there is hands down my favorite. When I would come back home from North Carolina to visit I would go there 2 times a week.

???????? ??????? ???????: The Chef knife I got with my original culinary kit. It’s Chicago Cutlery German Steel. Nothing fancy. I own other knives but this feels perfect in my hand, possibly because early in my career I broke a bone in my hand but still went to work and used my knife and the bone sort of healed around it. 

?? ???????? ????? ????: Steve Lanzilotti at Talia. He is doing some really great food My favorite “Celebrity Chef” is Jacques Pepin. His autobiography “The Apprentice” is a book I recommend to all young cooks

???? ?? ??? ?????: I drive a 2002 stick shift Ford Ranger which I love and I have a Subaru Wagon for when I have to take my daughter Lucy places.

??? ???? ???? ???? ? ????: “Down and Out in Paris and London” by George Orwell. It’s his first-hand story of being a dishwasher in Paris in the Early 1900s. 

?? ??? ???? ?? ????: I try to cook for my wife and daughter as often as possible. At least five nights a week.

???????? ?????? ?? ????: Pasta Bolognese. I enjoy cooking the sauce layer by layer. I try to make it take as long as possible so I can enjoy an extra beer! 

????? ??????? ???? ??? ????: While in the kitchen I listen to a decent amount of Willie Nelson but it can be anything from Bad Religion to Bob Dylan to A Tribe Called Quest.
