If you’ve been a fan of Victor Scargle’s deft cooking over the years, you might be disappointed to hear that the talented, young chef won’t be cooking in restaurants any more when June rolls around.
But with good reason.
The teaching gig will allow him more regular hours so that he can spend more time with his wife and toddler son. (Yes, ladies, sorry but he’s taken.)
Scargle, a self-taught chef, honed his skills at Pisces in Burlingame, the Grand Cafe in San Francisco, and Julia’s Kitchen at Copia in Napa. You can read my blurb on his departure in today’s “Inside Scoop” column in the San Francisco Chronicle.
One thing you won’t read there, though, is that Scargle is the nephew of my late-Mom’s former boss. No doubt, my Mom would have been proud to see just how far he’s risen.
