We are pleased and proud to announce the promotion of Jered Miller to Executive Chef at The Greenbrier Sporting Club!
Chef Miller is a native of West Virginia and began his career as a graduate of The Greenbrier’s Culinary Apprenticeship Program before excelling in various positions at the resort. He worked in their Culinary Arts Center – the nation’s first resort cooking school – and for Certified Master Chef, Peter Timmins, as Saucier, Sous Chef, and Chef de Cuisine, as well as with celebrity chefs such as Julia Child and Anne Willan. He also served six years as Restaurant Chef in the The Greenbrier’s Tavern Room, a Forbes/Mobile four-star restaurant, and maintained the four-star status. Five of those years were under Certified Master Chef Richard Rosendale, while he was captain of the U.S. Culinary Olympic Team, and the last year was under Michael Voltaggio of INK restaurant and winner of Top Chef’s season 6. His talents then led him to the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club in Durham, NC, where he served as Chef de Cuisine before returning to The Greenbrier in 2007 as Sous Chef and chairman of The Greenbrier Culinary Apprenticeship Program.
In April 2011, Chef Miller joined The Sporting Club’s culinary team and has held the positions of Sous Chef and Chef de Cuisine for The Members’ Lodge restaurant. Through his culinary contributions and introduction of a complete charcuterie program, he has elevated the quality of cuisine for our members. His intent is to focus on locally sourced foods and continue to build relationships with the members, local farmers, and community. He hopes to keep the food as true to the Appalachians as possible, while showcasing those things that make West Virginia so very special. His goal is to refine old-fashioned recipes and ingredients not found in other parts of the country into modern-day presentations that still taste like your grandma cooked them. While still providing something for everyone, his goal is to highlight the indigenous flavors unique to Appalachia.
When not at The Sporting Club making people happy, he enjoys wood working, mushroom foraging, and other outdoor activities with his wife, Kimberley, and children: Elizabeth, Madison, and Mason.
We hope you will join us in congratulating Chef Miller on his new role!
