Jack Kiggins On any given night at the legendary Plaza Hotel Jack will serve a former Secretary of State, New York's favorite Mayor, leading New York fortune 500 CEO's, fashion icons and distinguished philanthropists who spend their lifetime supporting blue chip non-profits. In the midst of the intense Gala season in New York, Jack will execute 3,000 covers a week; meanwhile managing high level attention to detail for prominent high society weddings on the weekends. On Sundays if he is home he will cook with his wife, who is also a Chef, and for their three children. Jack says that his kids do not like fast-food, and therefore, he continues to prepare 4 star meals at home. No rest for the weary is his motto.
Jack started his extraordinary and comprehensive culinary career over 30 years ago. He creates his dishes with a clear understanding of how people enjoy food. Jack explains, "the building blocks to spectacular food presentation is to create simple but artfully prepared seasonal food with a touch of delicate and sometimes intense flavors of local herbs to finish off each plate". Advice he learned from masters before him and continues to be true today.
He studied at the famed Culinary Institute of America and upon graduating Jack started working major culinary giants such as Restaurant Associates, Bridgewater's, Waters Edge Restaurant and the legendary Tavern on the Green. It was at the Tavern on the Green where Jack's role was Chef de Cuisine.
Jack has never forgotten great advice from years ago-'listen to each guest's desire and not your own wishes". This has led the way for a wonderful rapport between his vision and the guest who waits in the dining room for their entrée.
