Sophia’s Restaurant at the Fairview Inn announced the appointment of its new executive chef, Jason Jones. Originally from Charlottesville, Va., Jones brings to Sophia’s a creative philosophy towards cooking. This philosophy comes from cooking with his grandmother, who would prepare delicious meals fresh from the farm. From this he learned to cook what was in season and what was grown locally. He spends time researching the foods native to the region and then perfects recipes reflecting these ingredients.
After having attended the New England Culinary Institute, Jones spent several years working in North California. Before joining Sophia’s team, he gained insight into the foods of Mississippi by working as executive chef at Morgan Freeman’s Madidi Restaurant in the Mississippi Delta.
Jones plans to partner with local farmers to maximize the farm to table concept as much as possible.
