For the month of June, each guest will have one very important thing in common, they are Fathers. Chuck will focus on how they are able to balance their jobs, families, passions, and life while navigating fatherhood. On this Monday’s episode, Chuck will be interviewing Isaiah “Zay” Jones.

Isaiah “Zay” Jones is a sommelier in OKC. He is a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma and earned his MBA at Oklahoma Christian University. As the buyer and floor Somm at Mahogany Prime in Downtown OKC, Zay shows enthusiasm and passion for educating his staff and enhancing the wine culture in OKC. In addition to being one of Oklahoma’s brightest emerging beverage professionals, he is a father of two. He balances his career aspirations and family all while maintaining his “skinny-buff” physique by playing basketball and intense workouts.  Not without a sense of humor though if you need a dose of joy while scrolling find him on Instagram @zaysensei for humor in wine and maybe catch him spending some quality time with the family!

Monday Meditations with Wine – David Krog

Monday Meditations with Wine is a weekly live interview series on BRAVO!’s Facebook page highlighting beverage and hospitality professionals and their individual efforts to grow and evolve Southern Hospitality Industry.

For the month of June, each guest will have one very important thing in common, they are Fathers. Chuck will focus on how they are able to balance their jobs, families, passions, and life while navigating fatherhood. This week’s guest is David Krog from Memphis, TN.

Chef Dave Krog has been rooted firmly in the Memphis culinary scene since 1992. He began an apprenticeship under Lynn Kennedy at La Tourelle where he later became Sous Chef.

David went on to be Executive Chef at Madidi in Clarksdale, MS, but in 2005, returned to TN and since has held positions at Bari, The Tennessean, Erling Jensen’s, and as Executive Chef at Interim.

Krog considers himself a Neo Traditionalist. Working in direct correlation with local farms he honors the farmer in every step of the process to produce the highest quality meal for guests. Krog’s food is technique-driven contemporary southern cuisine. He has achieved national recognition and a fan-base with a 20-year history.

Chef Krog and Amanda, his business partner and wife, help build culinary communities- from fine dining restaurants such as the highly anticipated Dory, coming to Brookhaven Circle this winter, to community efforts like the 275 Food Project which houses the GroundUp Initiative. Their focus is on local food sourcing, diversifying kitchens with young food entrepreneurs of color, and creating positive social experiences.

Through leadership, with heart and soul behind what he does, Chef Dave Krog teaches and grows aspiring chefs- with the hopes of them becoming talented, compassionate team members that will ensure change in the industry standard.
