    Instructions for jam:

    About Chef Ryan Scott:

    Ryan joined Mission Beach Café in June 2008. Prior to the Café, he was chef and manager at Myth Café in San Francisco from 2005 to its closure in March 2008. There he developed an excellent reputation and critical acclaim for his fresh, hearty and thoughtful California cuisine. Lines formed early for his seasonal soups, salads, sandwiches and signature bag lunch, eventually drawing an average of over 300 lunchtime diners a day to this 48-seat, fast-casual spot.

    A 2001 graduate of the California Culinary Academy, where he met and befriended Mission Beach Café's Pastry Chef Alan Carter, Scott has cooked and learned in the kitchens of many of the country's best chefs. He was a line cook at Restaurant Gary Danko, and staged with Daniel Boulud at Daniel in New York, Charlie Trotter at Trotter's in Chicago, and Suzanne Goin at Luques and A.O.C. in Los Angeles. In late 2007 Scott was cast as one of 16 contestants on Bravo television's national, top-rated reality cooking show, "Top Chef." Shot in Chicago and judged by some of the country's most famous chefs, the show was an exhilarating, highly educational and singular experience for Scott and his fellow contestants.

    Ryan works extensively with many community organizations, donating time and cuisine, such as Meals On Wheels of San Francisco, Inc., Make-A-Wish Foundation, the American Heart Association, and the Guardsman Association.
