SAN FRANCISCO TO COOK IN
THE JORDAN KITCHEN WAS MY
DREAM JOB FuLLY REALIzED.
After creating elegant party menus in a highrise building, I now had orchards of olive trees
to nurture for crafting estate extra virgin olive
oil, and an extensive garden of vegetables and
fruit trees just below the kitchen to inspire
each dish. Over the last seven years at Jordan,
I’ve experimented with heirloom varieties
of produce, grafted fruit trees, expanded the
orchard and introduced counter-intuitive
ingredients to our menus. But a chef’s
inspiration is never ending. I’m constantly
searching for new techniques and tools to
complement our culinary program. And
sometimes those techniques are a tribute to
the past.
Last May, we decided to build our own woodfired oven on the terrace under our ancient
oak trees. The project was exciting because
I’d never had the opportunity to practice
wood-fired cooking the way so many young
European chefs do. The oven is also a beautiful
feature for our guests to enjoy while dining
al fresco. Cooking with it makes me feel
like a kid with a new toy. We spent a
few months testing different fires, woods
and recipes. It’s like learning to cook all
over again. And there is a lot to learn.
