Introducing Miele Table Artist, Chef Jason Paskewitz
Engaging culinary creativity with a passion for Better Living
Princeton, NJ – May 29, 2012 – Miele is proud to introduce Chef Jason Paskewitz as its newest Table Artist. Chef Paskewitz is currently the Executive Chef at Gemini Bistro and Rustic House in Chicago. With over a decade of experience creating delicious dishes in some of Chicago’s finest restaurants, Chef Paskewitz's seasonal menu showcases his experience and talent in executing straightforward, flavorful classics.
“I am very excited to be working with Miele as they introduce their new Better Living campaign. We share a similar food philosophy and commitment to forever improving our craft,” explained Chef Paskewitz. “While testing some of my recipes, I was completely enamored with the Miele Steam Oven and its ability to cook to perfection my pork belly ravioli. Not only was there no need to wait for a pot of water to boil, but I was able to prepare pasta for 20 people in just 12 minutes, with amazing results.”
On May 17, 2012, Chef Paskewitz shared his culinary vision through an innovative tasting menu, during a media event, at the Miele Gallery in Kenilworth. The evening showcased a regional menu highlighted by Miele’s suite of premium culinary appliances. Guests relished in the opportunity to cook alongside Chef Paskewitz, “touch the products and feel the brand” and witness for themselves the unlimited possibilities of what can be created with Miele appliances.
“We are thrilled to be working with Chef Paskewitz as part of our Better Living campaign. He is certainly a rising star in the culinary world and very talented,” explained Skyler Stevenson, Manager of Public Relations for Miele. “Our guests were especially intrigued to hear his insights about cooking and preparing dishes at home, whether it was with the Miele Steam Oven or the dual rotisserie in the MasterChef Oven. His culinary expertise combined with the versatility and ease of use of Miele appliances created a truly enlightened menu.”

About Chef Jason Paskewitz
Paskewitz later adopted Chicago as his hometown and honed his skills with more than a decade of experience creating notable dishes in some of the city’s finest kitchens, including Wave, N9ne and Four Seasons.
In September 2009, Paskewitz found his true niche when he partnered with Ryan O’Donnell to open the Lincoln Park neighborhood gem, Gemini Bistro. The celebrated, contemporary-American menu features seasonal ingredients with French and Mediterranean influences. Gemini was awarded three stars from Phil Vettel of the Chicago Tribune, four stars from Time Out Chicago and was named one of the “Best New Restaurants” of 2009 by Chicago Magazine. The restaurant is in extremely good company, as the Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand dubbed it a recipient of best-hidden culinary value in 2012.
In 2011, Paskewitz and O’Donnell struck again with Rustic House. This time, Paskewitz aimed to provide urbanites with fresh Midwestern dishes. The menu features classic American cuisine utilizing fresh, farm-to-table ingredients and an imported Rotisol French rotisserie. Rustic House has quickly risen to meet expectations, as it also received three stars from Phil Vettel of the Chciago Tribune and was named one of the “Best New Restaurants” of 2012 by Chicago Magazine.
Jason continues to create seasonal, authentic, celebrated dishes for which he receives great recognition in Chicago.
