John is our executive chef and has worked at St James Cheese longer than any employee. And, he has the best manners of any staffer; your grandmother would love John. His culinary talents were honed as a youth in Pass Christian, MS, preparing the fresh Gulf seafood that he still spends his free time catching. He then went on to the Cordon Bleu program in Atlanta and received a degree in hospitality and management from The University of New Orleans. John is responsible for many of St. James’ most popular menu items and maintaining our very picky standards, and is very fun at parties.
