Jonathan Black, Sous Chef at Pineapple and Pearls Restaurant in Washington, D.C., shares his career timeline with up-and-coming talent.
“We get the most phenomenal products at the market here in San Francisco – “materia prima”, which inspires me to come in and change everyday. But our team is what really inspires me. They’re all young, hungry, and excited. They come in and push hard everyday. Being surrounded by like-minded individuals, all here to create good products and having a kitchen you’re really happy to work in, really keeps me motivated.„
