Jay Bogsinke Chef St. Francis stfrancisaz.com 602-200-8111

This is part one of our interview with chef Jay Bogsinke of St. Francis. Bogsinke has been at St. Francis since August, when chef/owner Aaron Chamberlin decided to call in some extra firepower for the restaurant as he wrangles with the new Phoenix Public Market Café. Today, Bogsinke, who has been in the Valley since 1999, talks about his time at one of the city's most famous bygone spots, Michael's at the Citadel. Don't forget to come back Tuesday when he talks about how his upbringing in Chicago inspired him to want to cook.
