“How about a lunch date?” my friend, Pam, asked me the other day via email. I’m always up for getting together with her, so we met yesterday at a little French cafe called Cafe Rolle in Sacramento, CA. It’s located in one of my favorite parts of Sacramento.
UPDATE 05/09/12: More pictures added from the photo shoot I did at this wonderful bistro located in Cameron Park, CA.
Chef John welcomed my husband and I into his bistro with a friendly smile and big hug. Yes!Chef! (Corby) interned with Chef John for over a year learning much from the Cordon Bleu (France) graduate. Chef John’s use of fresh ingredients and elegant cooking style is something you just don’t get in many restaurants. The food tastes as good as it looks.
I will be going back as a customer and to photograph his lunch and breakfast foods. A very yummy assignment!
A few years ago, my husband, Yes! Chef!, had the opportunity to work with Chef John Evans at Zachary Jacques Restaurant in Placerville. He and his wife are co-owners and he is the chef. We have been dining at Zachary Jacques for many years and had always loved the food. So, it was a wonderful opportunity for my husband to be able to intern one or two days a week for over a year under this excellent chef. Chef John was an” honors graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. He has worked and trained under Chef Mark Hopper of Thomas Kelller’s Bouchon in Las Vegas. He also opened Mesa Grill in Caesars Palace with Bobby Flay.”
I have also been doing some of his photography for him for several years.
Recently he opened a new restaurant called ZacJack Bistro. And he gave me a call to come on down and take a few pics for his web page.
