CRAFTkitchen Las Vegas Chef Jaret Blinn.jpg


your new best foodie friend

While some kids grew up reading books, I grew up reading cook books. I learned to love life in the kitchen at a young age, cooking at home alongside my parents and grandparents.

I eventually made the hobby I loved a career, working as a chef for Ritz-Cartlons in Maui, San Francisco and Las Vegas, before becoming the Executive Pastry Chef at Le Cirque and Circo at Bellagio and, eventually, at Red Rock Resort. 

I always knew, though, that I wanted to do something different—I wanted to create a space where I was free to play with food and CRAFT up dishes that represented my family's creative take on dining. So, in 2015, I took a leap of faith, and, with the help of my beautiful family and amazing team, opened CRAFTkitchen here in Henderson. 

My mission as a chef is three-fold: (1) To source only ingredients I would want to feed my family, (2) To create dishes that are full of energy and flavor, and (3) To provide a space where members of the community can come together over unforgettable food.

Come in and say hello. It's an honor to feed you and yours,

-Chef Jaret
