Hailing from the good ol state of Ohio, chef Alejandro Najar has been cooking since he was a child. His grandmother and aunt are to thank for that. Ever since he was a little Alejandro has developed a refined palate, while other children were eating chicken nuggets, you could catch chef eating escargot and raw fish as a kid.
With fifteen years of experience and being predominantly self taught, chef Alejandro just recently finished 3rd on Hell’s Kitchen Season 21 Battle of the Ages. “Learn something new everyday” is the motto for Najar, especially when you teach yourself! Najar’s skills and flavors range from New American, Middle Eastern, Japanese, and Mediterranean, and it allows him to be versatile in many different cuisines.
