I had the pleasure to have a conversation with Executive Chef Aatul Jain, MSML, CDM CFPP, Culinary and Nutrition Services, Saint Peters’ University Hospital

With over 2 decades of multinational culinary and foodservice experience, Chef Aatul is currently at the helm of the stoves at St. Peter’s Health System in central New Jersey. An alumnus of the CIA, a Certified Dietary Manager, he holds a MS in Management and Leadership. His experience includes fine catering, Michelin star restaurants, volume food service production in B&I and Healthcare. Aatul revels in globally inspired ingredients and melding flavors and cooking styles across cultures and ethnicities. He lives with the mantra: dream and you shall see it, ask and you shall receive.
