So hang on tight as you romp with Jacky through a round of golf on a gorgeous course, take a back road adventure on a sunny day, or enjoy a meal like none other. The Fairway Gourmet will teach you to play "out of bounds!"
Jacky Pluton is a world-class chef with a zest for passionate living -- and a dream to someday score in the 80s. Born on Table 17 of his father's restaurant in Serrieres, France, Jacky has carried the family tradition of fine cooking to award-winning heights, graduating first in his class from Ecole Hoteliere de la Chaise Dieu. He worked in Michelin-star-rated restaurants in France, Monaco, and Switzerland before coming to the United States in 1986, where he has been Executive Chef at several of this country's top restaurants.
Jacky earned a succession of Five-Star Mobil ratings and Four-Star ratings from a Chicago- area publication. In 1996, he opened the first of several restaurants in the Chicago area and today is the Chef/Owner of Pluton in Chicago and Jacky's Bistro outside of Chicago, which Bon Appetit called America's best new casual restaurant in 2001.
