Meet the Chef

Jamal Walker

I have been a Grass Valley resident for the past 30 years.  I am thrilled to be embarking on this new adventure as the Chef for the Grass Valley Elks Lodge, Bistro  538.

My experience includes: 

  • General Manager at Summer Thymes Bakery and Deli;

  • Cook and Baker at The Flour Garden; and

  • New Production Creator/Cook at BriarPatch Food Co-op.​

As an Elk member and Chef of Bistro 538, I am looking forward to bringing "simply delicious and comforting" food to our community.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
