04/13/2015 - Slowing Down with Good Food and Golf at Silverado Resort and Spa

Chef Pablo Jacinto

A native of Oaxaca, Jacinto is one of eight siblings in a family where there were two terrific cooks — “my grandmother and my mother. With eight children, my mother was cooking all the time. I recall all the great moles and sauces … and I learned from that time.”

Pablo was raised in Mexico City, along with brother Erasto, who also decided to poke his nose in Napa Valley kitchens. The Jacinto brothers hooked up with restaurateur/chef Cindy Pawlcyn and her former business partners, with Erasto joining Pawlcyn in the kitchen at Mustards Grill for nearly two decades, and Pablo manning the stoves at Buckeye Roadhouse in Marin County. He also opened Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen with the noted valley restaurateur a decade ago.The brothers have worked side by side over the years as well. In Napa, they designed menus for both Tuscany and C Casa. Today, Erasto is executive chef at Napkins in downtown Napa, and brother Pablo is chef de cuisine at The Grill at Silverado Resort and Spa.
