Interview With Chef/Musician James Main

Stacey Viera of Every Food Fits has an interview and photos with chef, musician, entrepreneur and Arlington resident James Main:

James Main is living the dream. Or perhaps it’s more accurate to say that James Main is living MY dream. He’s a small-business owner, first-time homeowner, husband, and soon-to-be father who still has time to perform with his band, Brother Shamus, in venues in the D.C. area and on the East Coast.

Main’s modest and comfortable lifestyle in South Arlington, Va., is the result of more than 20 years of toiling in kitchens, working up the ranks from dishwasher to executive chef and now at the helm of Main Course Personal Chef Service.

After moving to D.C. in 1997, he spent the next several years in kitchens such as D.C.’s Café Saint-Ex and Clarendon’s IOTA Club & Café. Main then decided to go into business for himself as a personal chef.
