Chef/ Owner Jason Bond grew up in Wyoming and Kansas and was raised around farming and preserving the harvest. This “root cellar” style has shaped the food he prepares today. Bond moved to the East Coast in 1995 to pursue a culinary career and has worked with and learned from many passionate and idealistic chefs over the past 20 years in environments ranging from slow-smoked BBQ to Relais & Châteaux properties. Today he focuses on developing a network of food purveyors whose goals are to steward the environment and produce the best quality vegetables, fish, and meat in the world. Jason works directly with producers to find interesting vegetables and rare breeds of livestock and strives to combine traditional and modern techniques to prepare honest and flavorful food. Chef Bond opened Bondir Cambridge in November 2010.
