Pie Social

Josh Nelson of Jobot: Pie Social Celebrity Bakers 2015

Forks up, Phoenix! Chow Bella and Roosevelt Row present the sixth annual Pie Social at 2 on Saturday, November 21, at the Bioscience High School at 512 East Pierce Street in Phoenix. We've got an all-star lineup of bakers making pies for you to taste, and from now till Pie Social, we'll introduce them to you, one by one, through pie charts designed by each chef to capture his or her persona as a baker.

Today: Josh Nelson of Jobot

East Coast-born and trained at The Culinary Institute of America, Josh Nelson has been at Roosevelt Row's Jobot for the past three and a half years. He designed the menu and manages the restaurant, in addition to creating new items for the Sunday Brunch Special each week. But don't think he doesn't know what he's doing when it comes to pie — Nelson also bakes fresh pastries for Jobot every morning from scratch.
