About In Jest Events
Cooking is in Chef Robbie Jester’s blood – he began his career in his family’s restaurant at 12. After finishing high school, he continued to the Culinary Institute of America where he graduated with high honors. He then returned to his family restaurant as Chef de Cuisine while also holding posts at the DuPont Country Club and Hotel du Pont. Chef Robbie arrived at Toscana Kitchen and Bar (Dan Butler’s flagship restaurant) in 2008 as sous chef but quickly rose to Executive Chef. During his tenure with Toscana, he oversaw the renovation of Toscana Kitchen and Bar to Piccolina Toscana and became chef of Toscana To Go and Toscana Catering.
