Salut Edina's new head chef brings fresh flavors to the table
Salut Edina has a changing of the guard; Stephen Jones is named new head chef.
It appears as though there's been a bit of a shakeup over at Edina's premier French restaurant,Salut
. Parasole, the company behind Salut (and several other Twin Cities eateries), has announced that longtime head chef Christopher Van Proosdy has opted for a career change and moved on to work with a local fish purveyor. Taking his role will be longtime sous chef Stephen Jones.

We had the chance to chat with the new chef about his previous experience and the direction Salut will take in the future.
Jones started restaurant work at the age of 17 as a dishwasher, before going on to attend the culinary program at Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island. After graduating he moved to Boston where he worked at a well-known restaurant at the time called Salamander, which focused on French technique and pan-Asian cuisine.
