- Chef Benjamyn Greig -
I was born in northeast Ohio to Reverend John and Kimberly Greig. Being the son of a pastor, I moved several times during my childhood and grew to love different regional cuisines. After spending my teenage years managing fast food establishments, I garnered a sous chef position in a barbecue restaurant in Portland, OR. In 2012 I moved back to Ohio and at 23 was given my first executive chef position at Local Roots in Powell, Ohio. Over the years I have utilized and honed my skills in many kitchens across the nation, including opportunities to work with two James Beard Award winning Chefs. After three restaurant openings in Las Vegas, NV (Greene St. Kitchen, Mas Por Favor, The Slanted Door) in 2019, I decided it was time to move back to Ohio and contribute to the Columbus area food scene. I’m excited to bring my experiences to your event and take you on a culinary journey of your own.
