Jonathan Waxman        

Chef/Partner at Barbuto, Jams, Brezza Cucina, Adele's & Waxman's; Cookbook Author; TV Personality

Working as a successful chef, restaurateur and author, Jonathan Waxman has graced such prestigious kitchens as Chez Panisse in Berkeley and Michael's in Los Angeles. He is one of the pioneers of California cuisine and is credited with being the first to bring its style, fusing French cooking techniques with the freshest local ingredients, to New York.

Waxman is currently the chef-owner of Barbuto in New York City's West Village, Jams in New York City's Midtown, Brezza Cucina in Atlanta's Ponce City Market, Adele's in Nashville, and in 2016 opened Waxman's at Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco. According to New York Magazine, Barbuto's food is "rustic Italian," and the mood is "casually hip."

His first cookbook, A Great American Cook, was published in 2007. His second cookbook, Italian, My Way, published by Simon & Schuster, was released in April of 2011.

He participated in two seasons of Top Chef Masters on Bravo, where he earned the nickname "Obi Wan Kenobi," and Jonathan Gold of the LA Times has referred to Jonathan as "the Eric Clapton of chefs."

Giving back is important to Waxman and he works closely with many charities including City Meals on Wheels and Alex's Lemonade Stand. He currently lives in Manhattan with his wife and three children.
