All you need is the ocean and a good cup of coffee

Chef Jacob Cureton makes his bones in a city defined by a raucous collision of deliciousness — that's New Orleans to you — as the Executive Chef at ANNUNCIATION in the bustling Warehouse District. The modern Creole & Southern creations coming out of his kitchen are part of what makes this legendary city so culinarily compelling; the things that fill his thoughts and off-hours are like a little island of calm in the middle of Bourbon Street.
1. Good Coffee
My girlfriend and I have really good coffee every morning. If I don't get it I am less productive.
Family is very important. They support me in my crazy decisions — like being a chef.
I love playing music and listening. Makes things go smoother. It's like a buffer.
4. New Orleans
I need to live in a city with culture. Artistic music, food, people.
I need to see the world. Need it.
I need to be near the water. Fishing, boating, and swimming. All things I love.
I have to be originative. All the time.
I like to brew and drink beer. I like beer like sommeliers like wine.
9. The chance for something more
I'm always striving to better my [financial situation in] life.
10. My dogs
They always give me good energy.
11. My Camera
I love to capture beautiful things in a frame.
