Chef Jesus graduated from culinary school in Mexico and has been in the restaurant industry for 23 years. He also oversees the menu at Zephyr Grill’s locations in Livermore and Brentwood. With winemaker’s dinners such as these, Chef Jesus says he enjoys the “challenge of finding the flavors and dishes that pair with the wines.”

One of the most versatile chefs in the area, Jesus enjoys regularly changing up the menu at all three restaurants he oversees, and owners Lynn and Randy Tei say “he does it all” — Italian cuisine, Chinese, American, French, Asian, and Mexican. For special events like the winemaker’s dinners, “he does a fantastic job bringing out the complex wine notes with his dishes,” Lynn said. A “foodie” at heart, when Jesus isn’t working, he lovingly tends to his herb garden and fruit trees. Over the years, Chef Jesus has collaborated with several local wineries, including Bloomfield Vineyards, Petersen Vineyards, and McGrail Vineyards, to name a few.
