About Jonathan Waxman

Jonathan Waxman

Jonathan Waxman first stepped into the culinary scene in 1970 when he retired from his career as a professional trombonist to enroll in the La Varenne cooking school in Paris. After working at the celebrated Chez Panisse alongside Alice Waters, Waxman opened his own restaurants in New York City: Jams, Washington Park, and Barbuto. He's been named one the most influential Americans by Esquire and is the author of two cookbooks, A Great American Cook and Italian, My Way. He lives in Manhattan with his wife and three children.
