Jones Introduces “Philip & Friends in the Farmhouse” Video Series

As a trained chef and food enthusiast, Philip Jones has always had a knack for cooking.  Philip trained to become a chef in Paris at La Varenne, the famous French cooking school founded by noted cookbook author Anne Willan.  Following his experience in France, Philip moved back to the United States where he worked for more than 10 years honing his skills as a professional chef at a number of restaurants across the country.  His journey ultimately led Philip back to Jones Dairy Farm where he served as president from 2001 to 2021, and currently as CEO & Chairman.

Throughout his life, Philip has enjoyed cooking for family and friends.  This passion for sharing his culinary talents led to the creation of a new video series called Philip & Friends in the Farmhouse.  Each segment features Philip collaborating with chefs and food enthusiasts from around the US. in the historic Jones Farmhouse kitchen in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, the original location on the Jones property where Jones Sausage was first produced. 

In the inaugural video, Philip invites William Wall, a friend and charter fishing boat captain from south Louisiana, to pass along his intimate knowledge of authentic creole cooking.  Although not a professionally trained chef, Will learned how to cook at a young age from his family, and like many of his fellow Louisianans, takes great pride in the many creole recipe favorites.  For the first edition, Philip and Will take on traditional Shrimp Creole, a Louisiana comfort food that’s simple to make and has beautiful eye appeal.  The secret ingredients include Louisiana hot sauce along with Jones Boneless Hickory Smoked Ham and a garnish of Jones Dry-Aged bacon.  In later episodes, Philip and Will also will share recipes for Red Beans & Rice and Crawfish Fettuccine. 

Philip & Friends in the Farmhouse segments will air on the Jones Dairy Farm website and shared on Jones Dairy Farm social channels. Additional friends joining Philip in the Farmhouse kitchen will be announced at a later date.
