Jonah Chasin

Always ready for my next adventure, I (Jonah “BigMo” Chasin) moved to NYC from Boston to attend the Natural Gourmet Institute (NGI) in 2001.  Since then I have worked in restaurants, for caterers, and as a private Chef.  For the past 12 years, I have been the Executive Chef at a private school for low income kids in Harlem.  It is the first vegan school in NYC.

After learning about First Descents from many colleagues, I knew I had to get on board. Cooking healthy foods in gorgeous settings for beautiful humans combined with a little outdoor adventure is my recipe for happiness.

In my spare time I love traveling, snacks, cats, and laughs. I can’t wait to see you on the river!
