Jarrid Masse is a jack-of-all-trades – he’s a cook, a rocker front man, a welder, a puppeteer, a painter…and even a circus performer. Self-described as an “artiste,” he will use his wide array of talents and wild imagination to help Marcel come up with unforgettable unique menus and décor this season.
Born in Rhode Island and raised in Lakeland, Florida, Jarrid discovered he was a natural performer as a teenager attending Harrison Arts High School in Lakeland. While performing at the Viper Room a few years ago, Jarrid was introduced to Marcel by another renowned chef, Michael Voltaggio. He was soon hired to work with both of them as a line cook at the acclaimed restaurant, The Bazaar by Jose Andres. Marcel and Jarrid quickly bonded over their mutual passionate enthusiasm for artistic expression, so when Marcel decided to embark out on his own, he knew he had to have Jarrid on his team.
Jarrid’s business card reads: “Passion is often mistaken for madness.” Jarrid says this adage has never been truer for a person: “I am the self absorbed artist to outsiders and the passionate storyteller to my closest friends.”
When not in the kitchen, Jarrid enjoys creating art, going out with friends and playing shows with his band Maleva.
