Chef Schmidt is currently the Executive Chef at Morgan’s in the desert, a new restaurant and bar at the legendary La Quinta Resort & Club.
Chef Jimmy Schmidt is seen as a pioneer in the American culinary movement towards sustainable cooking. At his restaurant, he sources the best local products that are grown and raised responsibly, he focuses on traditional cooking methods – such as open grilling, slow roasting, braising and pickling – to create deliciously simple, healthy dishes.
Beyond his work at Morgan’s, Jimmy Schmidt has also authored several cookbooks and writes a weekly column for the Detroit News/Gannett Wire Services that appears in 200 newspapers across the country. He was the founder of Chefs Collaborative and is a former board member of Share Our Strength.
