Chefs Up Close – Jack McGuckin

Bijoux Destin, Miramar Beach

 

FAVORITE TV COOKING SHOWS

The ones I watched growing up—Justin Wilson, Jacques Pepin, Julia Child.

 

CULINARY IDOLS

I wouldn’t say I idolize anyone, but Emeril Lagasse is definitely an influence. I gain the most inspiration from cooking and talking with my great staff, current and past.

 

GUILTY PLEASURE

Chicken nuggets from McDonald’s.

 

SIGNATURE DISH

It would have to be the often imitated but never duplicated cast iron seated filet mignon cooked in duck fat.

 

MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT

That would have to be marrying my best friend and the love of my life on December 12 of this year.

Spread the love
