Guest Chef Kitchen Takeover: Jason Klutts
We’re thrilled to have award-winning Chef Jason Klutts doing a guest stint in our kitchen now through the holidays!
Originally from southern Louisiana, Jason “grew up around the stove” and knew he wanted to be a chef from an early age. He attended the Chef John Folse Culinary Institute and got his kitchen chops all over the map: in France, New York, and Chicago. In addition to winning multiple awards for his creative and tasty dishes, Jason has been featured on the Food Network, NOLA.com, Southern Living, Star Chefs, and more. He’s been cooking for fourteen years and most recently worked as the executive chef at Cane & Table, where he received local, regional, and national recognition.
Chef Jason’s been part of the LK fam since he came to the grand opening of our Refresh location. He’s been a major supporter, representing at Come Grow With Us and bringing Cane & Table into the fold as an externship and hiring partner. He has worked with THREE graduates: Shayne, Fred, and Leon! Now working with us as a Guest Chef, Jason’s “excited to be able to contribute” and whipping up culinary magic every day at 300 N. Broad.
Try his special oven fried chicken sandwich with papaya honey mustard and spicy mayo on a brioche bun for a flavorful lunch! And stay tuned for more creative rotating specials and details on Guest Chef Nights at Liberty’s Kitchen, coming in 2017.
