Jay Jones

Jay Jones is better known to some as Chef Jay. Imagine you were sleeping and wake to the wonderful aromas of all your favorite dishes. You wander downstairs and your house is filled with family and friends, all gathered to enjoy life and great food. For Jay, food is made to not only nourish the body but also to evoke thoughts in the mind — thoughts that come from the flavors, the preparation, the smell, the look and even the textures in our mouths.
Food is an all-encompassing tool that, if used properly, can create lasting memories. The right combinations of ingredients can trigger a feeling that says, “Yes, this just like I used to get when I was… (Fill in your good food memory here).” When he cooks, Jay looks to add that little hint of something — that small dash of this or that — to give the dish a new flavor profile without losing the base of the flavors we identify with. He has been in the hospitality industry for over 17 years. He started off being a DJ and wanting to find a way to get more people in the door and have them stay longer at events.
It evolved into catering parties and social gathering for friends and family; not for money just for the love of food and plus they did not mind being his guinea pigs while he attempted to perfect his craft. Then from there to weddings, large scale private events and anywhere people requested him to provide culinary services and great food. Jay graduated from the prestigious French Culinary Institute in New York City; that was an incredible experience for him; all the while growing up Jay would watch Jacques Pepin on PBS and now he was teaching Jay how to make the perfect French omelet in class. Jacques Torres, Nils Noren, and Ron Ben Israel to name a few were always there to help and teach him what needed to be done to get to the next level. Jay is the Executive Chef of Chateau Noir, a full service event planning and catering company, He hosts a weekly online video show called Culinary Creations with Chef Jay exploring food, drinks and all things culinary in an easy and informative way. He has made monthly appearances on local TV news shows doing food demos and he has appeared on the Food Network on the hit show Chopped. In addition Jay enjoys giving back to the community and volunteers his time with several organizations such as the Candellighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada, The Salvation Army of North Las Vegas, The Men’s Shelter of Charlotte, The Salvation Army Women’s Shelter, Hope Haven, Share our Strength and Amped for a Cure just to name a few. He also visits schools, camps and other venues speaking to the youth about the many opportunities in the culinary industry and what you need to take advantage of them. His goal is to reach as many people as he can and discuss the culinary arts and the exciting things that you can accomplish with them. When you have questions about food; he wants to be the first name you think of for the answer.
