Meet The Chef
A west coast native, Chef Jamil spent his early career cooking in Santa Cruz, Seattle, and the Napa Valley. A sous chef position at The Madrona Manor lured him to beautiful Sonoma County where he gained the upmost respect for not only local ingredients, but also more refined techniques. After a few years in Las Vegas as sous chef for Wolfgang Puck and a stint waiting tables he returned to Sonoma County to re-focus. He landed as chef de cuisine at Syrah Bistro and then Petite Syrah where the team received a 3 star review from the SF Chronicle. A stint at Scopa and a co-chef position at Campo Fina was also met with raving reviews. After some personal chef work and an appearance on Chef Wanted on the Food Network he was then hired as the opening chef at Woodfour Brewing Company, garnering a perfect food review from the Press Democrat and Best New Restaurant from the Bohemian. Realizing that being chef in a Brewery was limiting he left to seek a better fit. The Applewood Inn was the perfect setting to further refine his personal style and continue to utilize the bounty of West Sonoma County. While at the helm, again he recieved a perfect food rating from the Press Democrat, Now working exlusively as a Private Chef you have an oppourtunity to enjoy the cuisine of Chef Jamil in your chosen setting and customized to your preferences.

"It was barely tinged with the flavor of duck liver, smooth and sweet, with a touch of salt and so sinfully seductive that its pleasures still dance in my memory."
