Dan Jablow is a relative newcomer to the food industry. A finance professional for 13 years, it wasn’t until 2009 when he decided to pursue his passion for cooking by enrolling in the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts in Cambridge, MA. Upon graduation, after completing a few short stints in various kitchens in the Boston area he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and found a job working at Fatted Calf Charcuterie’s Hayes Valley store. Working in a full-service butcher shop was a logical choice for a self-proclaimed ‘meat enthusiast’ and it was during his tenure here where his ‘meat awakening’ occurred and the idea for Jablow’s Meats was first hatched. After investing in a charcoal smoker at the beginning of 2011, Jablow began recipe testing and development in earnest. A few short months later, he introduced his products at both the New Taste Marketplace and SF Underground Market. He has since left the Fatted Calf and devotes his time and efforts to Jablow’s Meats full-time. For now, Jablow’s Meats products are available through this web site for delivery throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and at the New Taste Marketplace each month.
