Chef @ Home – Jeff Jarfi

Posted by chaska on August 20, 2008

In a town like Louisville, we love our food, which in turn, means we love our chefs. I thought, “Wouldn’t it be great if we could get to know some of our favorites –  as well as some who seem to stay behind the scenes – and appreciate them in a very real way?” So, ‘Chefs @ Home’ was born and I am thrilled to have Chef Jeff Jarfi as our inaugural feature. Be sure to stop on by our next Nibble & Sip at Jarfi’s on Bardstown on Thursday, Aug 21, 6pm.  And if you haven;t checked out the bar at Jarfi’s yet, you really should. Moroccan Marinated Olives, Flatbread ans housemade chips adorn the bar to enjoy with your beverage of choice as well as a superb 1/2 price Sushi Mondays.  If you haven’t been yet, we’ve now given your three good reasons to stop by – what are you waiting for?

Favorite Meal at Home: Spaghetti with Moroccan Meatballs (ground beef, garlic, cilantro, cumin, paprika, olive oil mixed with egg yolk)

Favorite Snack Food: Popcorn

Favorite drink/beverage: Hot mint tea – very sweet

Any wind-down habits? You know, when you leave the restaurant, what do you
do to relax?
Drink wine while channel surfing the news programs

Favorite place to eat besides your own:
locally: locally owned restaurants – great variety & value
globally: Tru in Chicago

Are you native to Louisville? If not, where are you from? What brought you
Originally from Morocco, lived in Paris, New York and Atlanta, working for
Buckhead Live. Came to Louisville to work as Food & Beverage Director for the  Brown Hotel

Favorite thing about Louisville: All things Derby

Who you look up to in life: Martha Stewart & Donald Trump

Who you look up to in cooking: Todd English

Free share: My favorite charity is working with Home of the Innocents and one of my favorite cooking experiences is when I cooked with Patrick Hughes in his new kitchen from Extreme Makeover

    On behalf of the Home, I just want to say, we love Jeff Jarfi and all the wonderful members of the Jarfi’s Bistro family. If you haven’t had a Jarfi “experience” you MUST rethink that and get over to his restaurant on Bardstown Road this week-end! Jeff has both catered projects for us here at the Home of the Innocents and he has provided catering for me personally. He is wonderfully respectful of budgets, and puts together wonderful menus regardless of the customer’s price range.

    Jeff and the Bistro are a gem in Louisville’s dining crown!
