Renaissance Chef Catering Company was established in 2005 in the charming city Frederick, MD not far from the small town of Damascus where Jake was born and raised (and also met his wife, Erin in high school).  Jake first began the first few years of his culinary career as a young man working his way through multiple positions, from Prep & Line Cook, Restaurant Server & Kitchen Supervisor, to Restaurant Manager at various restaurants differing in styles & cuisines.  It didn’t take long for this young talent to be recognized and promoted into leadership roles within the Food & Beverage community regardless of the location.  Jake officially made the decision to take his culinary passion to a Professional career when he enrolled in one of the area’s best culinary schools, Baltimore International Culinary College.
