What can you tell me about Chef Jacob Mains?

Chef Mains is very passionate about local sustainable cuisine. Chef Jacob apprenticed with the talented Chef Doug Genovese, focusing on the source of products, additives, growing methods and other factors effecting food quality. Once fully immersed in the Pittsburgh farmers’ market scene, Chef Jacob was able to focus his attention on seeking out the purest produce the area had to offer. He established The Farmer’s Table, LLC in 2013.
