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

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

January 24, 2017

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.


2. Family


Family is very important. They support me in my crazy decisions — like being a chef.

3. Music


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.

5. Travel


I need to see the world. Need it.

6. Water


I need to be near the water. Fishing, boating, and swimming. All things I love.

7. Creativity


I have to be originative. All the time.

8. Beer


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.

*BONUS*


11. My Camera


I love to capture beautiful things in a frame.
