Hope you can make it - your dog will thank you!

Chef John has spent two decades in some of the best kitchens in the United States, Including: GT Fish & Oyster, Alinea, The MED, and The Sky Room. John began to prepare food for dogs in 2002 when he adopted his first two dogs, litter mates Lui & Zoe. It was clear from the beginning that Lui was a bit finicky with food and had a very sensitive digestive system. After consulting a vet who suggested a very expensive prescription wet food or a bland diet of chicken and rice you could make at home, naturally Chef John chose to begin making the dog food himself. Since then John has studied canine nutrition, dietary restrictions, and common allergies. Armed with this knowledge Chef John has created the dishes that make up the Chestnut & Grace Gourmet Dog Food Menu. Additionally, John runs a boutique catering company and is always creating fun customized dishes for his human clients.
