Chef Jon was honored to be the keynote speaker this month at Escoffier Culinary School's fall commencement exercises! Click here to view his speech (He is introduced at 9:12 in the video).
After graduating from the Cooking School of the Rockies almost two decades ago, Chef Jon Caton worked across the country building a successful and versatile career in the hospitality industry.
Prior to opening Graze Catering & Events, Chef Jon owned and operated Pot Kettle Black, which was recognized as one of America’s top food trucks by The Daily Meal. With Pot Kettle Black, Chef Jon pioneered Bonnaroo’s “Food Truck Oasis” which served over 100k people in four days. He also built a stellar wedding (30+) and movie production catering reputation in the Charleston, South Carolina area.
Graze Catering & Events represents the culmination of Chef Jon’s career. It has allowed him to combine the organized, streamlined elements of a corporate kitchen with the passion and innovation of an independent, upscale eatery. Moreover, Graze modernizes the tired image of the corporate cafeteria into a true amenity for corporations with their employees’ best interests at heart.
Along with the continued success of Graze Corporate Catering--which now has catered events statewide and served up to 1000 people, Chef Jon was selected to join the Advisory Board for his Alma Mater, the Escoffier School of Culinary Arts this year. He is honored for the opportunity to influence the industry's bourgeoning, top culinary talent.
