Jonathan Waxman is the chef and owner of the beloved bistro Barbuto in the West Village. Surrounded by the art of food growing up in Berkeley, with grandparents who owned a farm in Sonoma, Waxman went on to study cooking first in San Francisco and then in Paris. After mastering the fundamentals of classic French cooking, Waxman returned to California, gaining experience at Chez Panisse and Michael’s.

We hosted chefs Jonathan Waxman and Pete Evans at Ginny’s this Spring for Fine Cooking’s Moveable Feast, a much welcomed opportunity to highlight the Harlem Farmers Market as well as Chef Waxman and Marcus’s favorite recipes. Gathering an illustrious group of food journalists and friends–Adam Sachs, Kate Krader, Veronica Chambers, Sidra Smith, Rebekah Maysles, and Bevy Smith, to name a few–we all sat down to enjoy the Barbuto chef/owner’s famous Gnocchi with Spring Vegetables (the trick is to freeze them!) and Lamb Chops with a kale and fingerling potato salad. Over on the Red Rooster side, Marcus whipped up Twice Fried Yardbird, showing Pete how to flavor the oil, and a Pickled Trout with root vegetables. Check out the entire episode here. Read More

Last night, we had a special guest chef and good friends of mine Jonathan Waxman joined us to prepare a special dinner at Red Rooster. It always a pleasure cooking alongside Jonathan, and yesterday was no exception as we joined forces to cook for WITS, Wellness in the Schools, a nonprofit that helps bring healthy eating into New York City’s public schools. Started by another great colleague, Chef Bill Telepan, WITS recently auctioned a dinner at Red Rooster prepared by Jonathan Waxman and me to raise money for the organization.

I was thrilled to partake in it and have Jonathan show off his skills at the Rooster kitchen. Read More
