In this episode we'll discuss: what influenced Fox to become a chef; the importance paying attention to detail; how mastering the little things pays off over time with the compounding effect; how a constant drive for perfection can be just as much as a weakness as it can be a strength; and how to use instagram to collect feedback
Chef Jeremy Fox got his start working back-of-house in southern restaurants at the age of 17. He would go on to stage in Europe at three Michelin Star properties, then he found himself back in the states, but this time on the West Coast, in California’s Bay Area. He fine-tuned his skills at Manresa, Rubicon, and Charles Nob Hill before landing the executive Chef position at Ubuntu, in Napa, CA. Under Fox’s tenure, Ubuntu was awarded a Michelin Star. In addition, Fox has garnered accolades including food and wine “Best New Chef 2008” and San Francisoco Chronicle “Rising Star Chef 2008”. In 2013 he joined friends Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan at Rustic Canyon Wine Bar and Seasonal Kitchen, and this is where you can find him today.
