About Executive Chef Jeffrey Salazar
At Parsnip, Chef Salazar’s menu reflects his approachable and outgoing personality and pairs some of his favorite ingredients together with his Asian heritage. Aired November 2019, Chef Salazar is the proud winner of the “No Meat. No Problem!” vegetarian TV episode of CHOPPED on the Food Network. Prior to Parsnip, Chef Salazar served as the Executive Chef of B3 at the renowned Berklee College of Music showcasing a Southern-influenced menu. Originally from New Jersey, Chef Salazar graduated from Johnson & Wales University with an Associate Degree in Culinary Arts and is a specialist in sports nutrition from the International Sports Science Association. He began his culinary career under two mentors in Providence, RI, Chef Jules Ramos and Chef Ashirwad Elhence, with whom he developed his skills and expanded his repertoire. He moved to New York in 2013, working at a string of established restaurants including the Caribbean-inspired Cove Lounge in Harlem as Executive Chef as well as under Chef Bobby Flay at GATO Restaurant and Bar Americain.

Embracing his Filipino heritage, Chef Salazar was inspired from a young age by his hardworking mother who made delicious, home-cooked meals for her family of six every evening, as well as by the TV shows of Julia Child, Martin Yan, and Bobby Flay. Along with cooking, his other greatest passion in life is basketball. Whether on or off the court, he expects his teammates to give their all, to work with and for the team, to have the drive to keep pushing forward, and to keep learning new skills.
