Napa - November 12th 2015 - Tarla Mediterranean Grill is pleased to announce new Executive Chef Jerrod Doss! Working in kitchens from a very young age, Chef Doss first cut his teeth in the kitchen of a pizzeria. He claims that everything clicked for him as a chef after reading Michael Ruhlmans "The Reach of a Chef". The chapter titled "Edge Cuisine: Grant Achatz" inspired him to learn everything he could about the world of fine dining and what it takes to work at the Michelin awarded level. Jerrod started by doing a stagè at The French Laundry sister restaurant, Bouchon. Chef Doss had never worked in a kitchen culture like this before and it was here that he realized who he was and where he was going in the culinary world. Since then Chef Jerrod Doss has held positions and done brief stints in a number of the San Francisco, Bay Area and Napa Valley Michelin Starred Restaurants. Most notably spending time at Chez TJ in Mountain View Ca, Manresa in Los Gatos, Quince in San Francisco, as Sous Chef for Aziza of San Francisco and recently invested time and cooked at the 3 starred French Laundry. Along the way Chef has worked with a wide variety of worldly cuisines favoring the traditions of France, the simplicity of Japan and the versatility of the Mediterranean. The influences range from Spain to Hungary and everything in between! We couldn't be happier to have him leading our team!
