Jackson Gilmore – BIO – Angler’s Alibi
Chef Jackson joined the Angler’s Alibi family in 2017 under the guidance of Chef Robert Holtzman and immediately gave us confidence of his ability to step in as Head Chef. His attention to detail and his work ethic is beyond reproach. He was a huge hit with the entire staff and guests, alike. Jackson was eager to please with a wide range of culinary specialties, from creating custom made sugar-free deserts for dietary needs of customers, to plating up a sushi dinner for the entire camp!
Chef Jackson creates a top-notch dining experience for guests by leveraging his tenure on his competitive high school cooking team in Flagstaff, AZ. Jackson earned accolades and accumulated several honors and titles, such as Arizona’s Top 10 High School Junior Chef and was named 5th in the state as a Senior. He has also studied under a Master Sushi Chef in his home town of Flagstaff Arizona to further enhance the fresh fish dining experience at Angler’s Alibi. Jackson is a US Foods Scholar and is currently studying business at Oregon State, which fortunately runs on a trimester system, allowing him flexibility to be with us the entire season.
Chef Jackson shared his talents and passion for cooking this past summer as Head Chef and was given rave reviews by the guests on their departure interviews. He was even offered some cooking opportunities over the winter by some of the guests but declined due to his college plan.
Chef Jackson looks forward to adding more exciting options to the menu in 2019 which both staff and guests are looking forward to experiencing!
