about jonathon sawyer
an old world german chef was the best thing to happen to jonathon sawyer. back in the early 2000’s sawyer was attending engineering school and cooking in a local dayton, ohio restaurant every night. one nght, the chef came to sawyer and said in his thick german accent “jon, (grimace) you… are not so bad at cooking.” surprised & enamored with praise coming from his surly german boss he realized engineering school wasn’t for him and promptly dropped out to attend to culinary school. he would find his love in the kitchen.
sawyer would go on to work for chef charlie palmer in new york city before opening parea in new york & lolita in ohio for michael symon. After his son catcher was born he headed home to cleveland where he went on to build a small empire of restaurants including the greenhouse tavern, noodlecat, & trentina, as well as a probiotic vinegar business tavern vinegar co. In 2010 sawyer won the food & wine “best new chef” award and in 2015 he won a james beard award for best chef: great lakes. when jonathon is not in the kitchen he is hanging out with his wife amelia, their two kids catcher & louisiana, their two dogs potato & vito, or their two backyard chickens bear & squid.
