The Jazz Chef Project

The Jazz Chef Project

The Jazz Chef, Brian Ross, founded TheJazzChef.com in 2017. He realized, one day, plowing through cookbooks, that you could cook an amazing meal, every day of your life, and never scratch the surface of humans’ most passionate art form:

Food, and drink.

The world’s recipes remain largely isolated, even as the Internet makes it easier for home chefs, from every part of the globe, to gather, share, and improvise cuisines that amaze, and impress, family, and friends.

 

Our Mission.

 

  • To create a global exchange for home chefs, by home chefs, from around the world;
  • To help us all find great meals in the best of our traditions, food science, and technique
  • To honor traditions of a billion families;
  • To improvise great new foods for our connected world!

About The Jazz Chef

Writer/Publisher/Filmmaker/Journalist/Chef Brian Ross, The Jazz Chef, has more than forty years cooking for friends and a family of seven, and a decade teaching improvisational cuisines.

From quick family meals, to out-the-door snacks, to parties for fifty, or more, he’s done what you do, every day: Show love, and care, for family, and friends, through our greatest gift:

Good food, served with respect, and love.

fear of cooking

GOT Mageirocophobia?

So many people suffer from mageirocophobia (mah-gayr-ah-co-phobia), the fear, or anxiety, of cooking.  

The frequent signs:

  • “How do I know when it’s cooked?”
  • “I left [insert food here] out at a party for four hours. Is it still good?”
  • “I followed the recipe, but it still came out wrong.”
  • “I smoked it, but the meat is still pink. Is it raw?”

COOK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX
(NOT OUT OF BOXES.)

Improvisation is the heart of Jazz, the ability to understand all of the fundamental rules of music, and then break them, creatively, to make something amazing, and new.

That kind of improvisation is what I want you to do in the kitchen every day: Let your aromata of spices, your pantry full of basic ingredients, the farmer’s market near you, or a great local greengrocer, butcher, bakery or amazing online purveyors that I, and our top chefs,  recommend, in our Choicestuff™, inform your inspiration to create great meals for you, your family, special guests, dinner parties, or events that you host!

I’ll school you on the 101 of food safety, food basics, like the perfect temperature of an egg, and recommend the tools and tactics that will bring certainty and confidence to the way that you cook.
