Chef Jonathan Hicks

About the Chef

Born in Harrisburg, PA Chef Hicks grew up in Maryland (Baltimore,Laurel, Catonsville). He graduated from Laurel high school, and went to Providence, Rhode Island to study Culinary Arts/Entreprenuership at Johnson and Wales University. He has had the opportunity to work at Waterfront Kitchen, Earth Wood & Fire and Grillfire Arundel.

"My cooking style blends the feelings and tradition of the soul food I grew up on and fuses my love for Asiain/Spanish/BBQ and passion for heat(peppers/chiles). I also feel my ability to create big flavors with a good deal of balance is a strong skill of mine."

When asked about his favorite dish, Chef Hicks tells us it is Lemongrass Short Rib with CocaCola Hoisin BBQ & Saffron Rice. "I'm proud of this dish because it was the first time I started experimenting with Thai food and flavors. It is a play on the lemongrass short rib I ate in Cranston, Rhode Island at Thai Excursion, it always reminds me of that place and good times", he tells us.

Influences

"My Grandmother (rest in peace) is my culinary inspiration. I can remember all of my life watching my grandmother change peoples attitude or bad days with just a plate of food. I didn't understand as a kid, but now as a chef I genuinely appreciate the power that a good dish or plate food can have. I feel as though cooking is my superhero power and that's the way I can best change the world, one plate at a time."
