New Chef!

CHEF ANNOUNCEMENT Aug 07, 2014
CHEF ANNOUNCEMENT I am proud to announce, that after interviewing multiple candidates, I have hired Jason Sperber as our new Executive Chef. A Southern California native, Mr. Sperber has over 18 years’ experience cooking. He is quiet yet confidant, and possesses a “Member First” mentality. I believe he will be a great leader in the kitchen, and a tremendous asset to our Senior Management Team. Mr. Sperber comes to us from Mountaingate Country Club here in Los Angeles, where he has served as the Executive Chef since 2010. While at Mountaingate Country Club, his culinary team won the 2012 and 2013 award as The Knot’s Best Wedding Venue in Los Angeles. Prior to his tenure at Mountaingate, Jason was the Executive Chef/Sous Chef at Braemar Country Club in Tarzana from 2004-2010. After working almost 13 years with American Golf and Club Corp, he wants an opportunity to get away from the corporate lifestyle. He has a strong grasp on cost control while at the same time increasing food quality and dining experience. He has managed a 3.2 million dollar operation, but considering the multiple events that occur at Mountaingate (sometimes at the same time), I am sure he will make the transition to our 5.5 million food operation quickly. Mr. Sperber will be joining our staff on Tuesday August 19th, and will quickly dedicate his attention to our culinary team. He will be visiting the dining room and the bars to introduce him, and I am sure by the time we reach November 1st, you will definitely know we have someone new as the leader of our culinary department. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at jfurlow@magiccastle.com or give me a call at (323) 851-3313 ext. 350. Joe Furlow General Manager Academy of Magical Arts
