Bio: Executive Chef Jason McClure has been at the helm of the Sazerac culinary team since its inception in 1997.
His menu draws ingredients from the local harvests of the pacific northwest and McClure's philosophy of "food being fresh, simple and focused" is evident in all of his creations.
McClure, a native of Phoenix, earned a bachelor's degree in Hotel/Restaurant Management from Northern Arizona University. Prior to joining the team at Sazerac, McClure worked as a chef in several restaurants throughout Arizona and Minneapolis before settling in Seattle where he is constantly inspired by the endless bounty of the region and its ever evolving food culture.
When he is not cooking up a storm at Sazerac or hosting his " Little Bit of Lovin'" cooking classes, he enjoys foraging for mushrooms, travel, building vintage bicycles, photography and indulging in his affinity for sushi.
