Chris Cosentino is the chef and co-owner of San Francisco’s celebrated Cockscomb restaurant; the newly-opened Jackrabbit in Portland, OR; and Acacia House at Las Alcobas, a Luxury Collection Hotel in Napa Valley – alongside partner Oliver Wharton and parent company Delicious MFG & CO. He is also the chef & co-creator of Boccalone artisanal salumeria. Cosentino’s first executive chef position began at Incanto in 2002 where his innovative Italian and whole animal cookery drew critical acclaim. Cosentino opened Cockscomb in 2014, showcasing a range of sustainable meat cuts and dishes inspired by the city’s culinary history, which San Francisco Chronicle restaurant critic Michael Bauer awarded 3 stars, deeming that: “There’s nothing else like it, and Cosentino has a consistent, unwavering vision.” Cosentino has appeared on Food Network’s “Next Iron Chef America,” “Chefs vs. City,” and BRAVO’s “Top Chef Masters,” earning over $140,000 for The Michael J. Fox Foundation as the season four winner. In late August 2017, Cosentino, along with writer and photographer Michael Harlan Turkell, will debut Offal Good: Cooking From The Heart, With Guts (Clarkson Potter), a resource for mastering how to cook and honor the animals we eat and explore the unique quality of our ingredients. He is also the author of Beginnings: My Way To Start A Meal (Potter/Ten Speed/Harmony) and collaborated with Marvel to produce a 32-page comic book called Wolverine: In The Flesh.
