Jessica Koslow worked in pastry at the James beard award winning restaurant Bacchanalia in Atlanta, Georgia.  Upon returning to California, Jessica was attracted to the diversity of local produce - beautiful and honest snapshots of the state’s vigorous growing seasons.  In 2011, Jessica started Sqirl, a now, highly-regarded preserve company that focuses on using produce from family-owned farms that practice sustainable, certified organic methods that are in close proximity to Los Angeles. Sqirl, the chef driven breakfast and lunch restaurant followed, which LA Weekly placed at #9 and LA Magazine slotted as the #7 best restaurant in Los Angeles for 2014.  Jessica was one of 100 chefs in the US to be nominated for F&W’s People’s Choice Chef of the Year and has just been named a Los Angeles RISING STAR by the industry’s leading magazine, Star Chefs. - See more at: http://www.lafw.com/index.cfm/chef-Jessica_Koslow_694.htm#sthash.7W4kQFPJ.dpuf
