Chef Alan Lazar, CCE, ACE

Meating Our Needs

Chef Alan Lazar was born a butcher. From a young age, he honed his skills while apprenticing at his family’s kosher butcher stores in New York. Since 1994 he has been a professor at  Johnson & Wales University,  teaching the craft of meat cutting to scores of young culinarians, gaining many accolades and certifications throughout his career.  In our kitchen, Chef Lazar entertains us all with tall tales of butchery while expertly crafting charcuterie and butchering meats and fish of all kinds.
