HOW WE GOT HERE
We here at The Chefs Cave are not so much a “we” as much as I am a “me”. My name is Josh Zweifler and I am the sole owner and employee (so far) of The Chefs Cave. When I was 13 years old, I had the great fortune of receiving a position at a prestigious country club in San Jose California. It was here over 3 summers that I learned that creating amazing dishes did not have to be a strict following of recipes, but could be an exploration of new flavor combinations that have never been tried before. I learned to take pride in what I made, no matter where I was, at home, at work, even at jobs I where I thought the food was sub-par, “never let yourself be the weak link” became my mantra. After years of working all over the California Bay Area, from saving a dying Kebab Shack and Hookah Bar while in College to opening a restaurant with a Michelin Star Chef and a former San Jose Sharks player, I had enough of working for other people and set out on my own. I moved to Austin in 2018 to start my own version of underground dining, and finally after almost 2 years of saving and preparation I was set to begin. I was just about to host my very first dinner when I started to hear about Covid-19. It soon became clear that hosting an underground dining club was not going to work, and all of a sudden, all the work I had been doing for the past 2 years to start this endeavor was nullified. Not being able to start my dining club was a big blow, but I quickly adjusted and began experimenting with making jams, and what I have discovered is a sugary world of literally millions of different flavor combinations. Through daily experimentation I found that there were so many amazing flavors to share, I couldn’t possibly decide on just 5, 10, or even 20 flavors. That journey led me to create this site to enable you to experiment just like I did! Having made countless jams myself, I will be able to adjust any combination of flavors to take your unique jam to the peak of its potential!
