Chef Instructor & Farm to Table Coordinator

Chef Ben Grebel’s love of food began with his grandmother’s Sunday dinners in St. Louis. Among the seven or eight courses that appeared each week, her risotto with saffron and mushrooms remains his favorite. He joined ICC as a Culinary Arts Chef-Instructor in 2013 because “two of the things that I love most about this profession are the ability to guide and mentor passionate people and the ability to be creative and grow myself.” He believes leadership, hard work and failure are as important to success as passion. “Never be afraid to try something and fail. Never fail and accept it to be the final truth that it can’t be done.”
