Letters To A ‘Vegan’ Foodie: Jarred of PMA Foods Cooking At The Basics

Jarred is Cooking for The Basics!!

You May know PMA Foods or you may know Jarred Vyrhof. If you know either, you know where the best Vegan Cheese around comes from…And when I say the BEST, I mean, whole heartedly, he has the most creative & unique Artisan Dairy Products on the market right now.

I originally met Jarred over a year ago when a vegan client of mine referred me to him to make my vegan dishes more versatile & with a higher quality of ingredients and taste. This was a GAME CHANGER. He not only was able to surprise me with how delicious his cheeses were but how he was able to create new products custom to what I needed!

For a time Jarred ran his own Vegan Café and he has a strong following in addition to supplying places like Funk N Waffles and Strong Hearts.

People love his mac & cheese, Tofu egg Sammie Sandwiches & Tacos. WELL GET EXCITED !!! Jarred is now spending some time working with The BASICS making your favorites and more. I’ve learned a lot over the past year with how to make tasty, quality Vegan Foods.

We’re going to feature a cool. creative menu every week plus add more amazing dishes to our existing Vegan Menu!

In His Own Words:

“My culinary career started back in 1983 in a small town Henrietta New York as a dishwasher. I didn’t know but it was start of a long hard working career. There were many turns and bumps from there as I learned how to do flat top work, make Gyros, tzatziki, and many other dishes. My boss was hard chef  to work under, but I learned a lot from him. From there I worked in several restaurants all along the way getting my certificate in Culinary Arts, baking, and pastry from Boces in Fairport, New York. I was solely schooled in French Culinary learning how to make what separates his school of learning from others such as a  true French omelette and different pastries.
My big chance is what I got hired at the Holiday Inn at the age of 16, first doing nothing but food prep work for banquets then eventually moving up to being Head Banquet Cook remembering one thing from a Mentor that Banquets are all numbers. This taught me the business side of cooking, ordering, staffing.   At the same time, I worked at the Marriott which some considered a conflict. But I was always hungry to learn more and took the opportunity to do so whenever it presented itself. I eventually worked in other restaurants ranging from Mediterranean to Italian. After graduating high school I had a short stint in college. I could keep on going, but my basic learning came from Cornell University where I was a line cook,  then becoming House Chef for several fraternities where I got to work with some of the best chefs in New York State. I learned a lot from the Executive Chef, Jerry Bolton at the Oncenter where he mentored me for 3 years.
At this point in my life, I can never see myself doing anything else and it all started as a little kid from my Mother, my Father, and my Brother Carl. He, being a cook in the military was a major inspiration for my path I took in my professional career.
This long road has now brought me to being Head Chef at ‘The Basics & Comfort Foods’. This is the beginning of a career move that will allow me major opportunities to develop my culinary skills and grow as a chef. I want to continue my education in learning how to show the world how the beauty of Culinary can change the world. I’m proud of my path and moving forward here will allow a lasting legacy of passion, hard work and determination for my children. Moving to Syracuse was the best thing I’ve ever done! I am now married to Renee and we have a handsome son named Felix who has been added to my beautiful blended family of 5 boys and 4 girls total.
P.S. Thank you Jeane and Rosina [my sisters], for always backing me up and being there no matter what.”

Thanks for your support as always!
