Chef Instructor

Chef Joseph Simon is a survivor. The Jersey Shore native has cooked at David Burke Fromagerie, sailed around the world in the kitchens of SilverSea Cruise Line, and led several busy New Jersey restaurants, including his own bistro, which was destroyed in Hurricane Sandy–in fact, he says his most satisfying culinary experience was cooking for the emergency rescue workers during the storm. Trained in Provence, France, with an Associate’s Degree in Culinary Arts and Applied Science, he joined ICC as a Chef-Instructor in 2013. “The nonstop action of the kitchen is addictive. Learning everyday and improving myself as a chef and a person is what I love to do. Being able to give someone the skills to hone their craft is priceless and rewarding. I get the best of both worlds working at ICC.”
