Working in the Institute Kitchen

LJ Klink: Restaurant Rockstar

Age: 33

Education: Applied Science in Culinary Arts, Inland NW Culinary Academy; Bachelor of Arts, Eastern Washington University; Masters of Arts, Gonzaga University.

My Favorite Cook BookCIA’s 5th ed. Professional Chef

Who Inspires Me : Tony B., Pete Tobin, and his parents. His parents are life long restaurant hospitality people that have a great work ethic and are food snobs.


Fun Facts: Had a run on a national outdoor adventure TV show where he was the on air chef; that aired for 2 years and a talk radio show about food where LJ and the other hosts were said to be the “Shock Jocks of Food Talk.”

A Dish I Love to Make : Any Classical Cuisine that is simple and could be classified as “Peasant Food”.

My Cooking Philosophy:  Good cooking techniques and a basic fresh “old school” approach that has been altered just enough to meet the needs of a modern diner.
