Executive Chef Jeremy Morrow of Bistro 43 in Des Moines, Iowa. Influenced by chefs like Alice Waters and Charlie Trotter, chef Jeremy Morrow of Des Moines, Iowa is passionate about supporting local farmers and using seasonal produce. Consequently, Morrow sees his cuisine as a collaboration between himself and the farmers that produce his ingredients. Often, local farmers personally bring their product to his doorstep and he shapes his menu around what they have available.

Although Morrow specializes in Eastern cuisine, he grew up in a landmark of the west: Nashville, Tennessee. The first time he got his hands on fine cuisine was as a waiter in Nashville restaurants. But working in the food and wine milieu inspired him to trade his bow tie for an apron and pursue culinary arts. He made the chef’s pilgrimage to California where he attended California Culinary Academy in San Francisco. After working in several restaurants in California, Oregon, and Alaska, he opened two restaurants in Des Moines: Bistro 43 and Forty Three Restaurant and Bar. His latest project is an upscale neighborhood bar in Des Moines called The Star Bar.
