Meet the kitchen team:
Joey Brewer, head butcher/co-owner
A native of Washington state, Joseph Brewer (aka “Joey the Butcher”) discovered his passion for cuisine during his formative years in New York City, cooking in various kitchens throughout one of the world’s greatest food cities. Upon returning to Seattle in his late twenties, the young chef encountered personal setbacks that threatened to temporarily derail his culinary dreams. Ever the fighter, Joey joined the renowned FareStart Culinary Arts Job Training Program in 2007 where he received invaluable training and support, as well as the opportunity to work alongside celebrated Seattle chefs. Joey went on to find success in a supervisory position at The 5 Spot (a Chow Foods restaurant), handling everything from menu development, quality control and food preparation to scheduling, ordering and inventory. In 2009, Joey joined West Seattle’s Jak’s Grill as the lead line cook where his commitment to producing the highest quality food led him to The Swinery, where he is now the head butcher and co-owner.
And the consultant:
Chef Joseba Jiménez de Jiménez, operations director and gastronomy consultant
Basque-born Chef Joseba Jiménez de Jiménez- four-time James Beard Award nominee (2005, 2006, 2007, 2009)- began his career in Madrid in 1979. His culinary training continued in San Sebastian, Spain, which continues to influence his culinary style today. He studied classical French cuisine in Paris and Biarritz, France, where he specialized in the cuisine of Gascony and the French Basque country. Chef Joseba’s celebrated culinary career includes an apprenticeship at the Royal House in Spain, working as a former chef at the Ruins and Maximilien at the Market, and as the former executive chef/co-owner of Txori and the Harvest Vine.
