Meet Chef Jackson York
Official Chef of Texas 2010
Chef York is the Chef at the well known Edom Bakery and Grill in Edom, Texas. We have been stopping by the Bakery and Grill for years to have their wonderful baked goods, lunches and dinners. Today we asked the friendly hostess if we could meet Chef York and she said she would see if he could come out to speak with us. We had a great visit with Chef York, he is very personable and has the greatest smile. When I asked him if I could take his picture for my blog, he asked if I wanted him to put on his Chef Jacket and Hat, he said "but really this is the way that people know me." He made us feel right at home and felt we had know him for a while. He is a member of The American Culinary Foundation Texas Chefs Association and a Director in the East Texas Chapter. He was named the Official Chef of
The State of Texas by that Association for 2010. If you would like to know more about that association go to www.texaschefsassociation.org
When you come into the Edom Bakery and Grill it is so warm and friendly with a great country atmosphere, tables adorned with blue and white check table clothes.
As if one case is not enough there are two to make the decision even more difficult...
because I want it all!
Well a decision had to be made so Leonard and I decided on the Italian Cream Cake...
Oh my goodness!
That cake just melts in your mouth. It was past delicious, it was truly a little bit of heaven!
As if that wonderful food is not enough Chef York offers cooking classes here at the Edom Bakery and teaches classic dishes like Beef Wellington and more.
We had a wonderful Day Trip to Edom and really enjoyed our visit at the Edom Bakery and Grill with Chef York. Thank you for your Texas hospitality!
I hope to see all of you back here at The Country Cottage soon!
Peace and Joy
