"Top Chefs & Top Wines" Dinner, March 15, 2013
Chef Jennifer Carroll was born and raised in Philadelphia and attended The Restaurant
School at Walnut Hill College. She spent a few years training under multiple chefs in
Philadelphia then made the move out west. After spending time in San Francisco as the
sous chef at Café Kati and Julia, her aspiration to work in one of the best and most
disciplined kitchens in the world led her to work at the prestigious 3 Michelin starred Le
Bernardin. After four years, Chef Eric Ripert hand-selected Jennifer to lead his kitchen
at his new restaurant 10 Arts, bringing her back to her roots in Philadelphia.
Chef Carroll went on to appear on two seasons of Bravo’s Emmy and James Beard
Award-winning television show Top Chef season 6 Las Vegas and All-Stars where she
garnered nationwide fame and captured hearts of the fans. She most recently starred
on Life After Top Chef.
Jennifer contributes her time and talents to many charitable causes such as Dock-to-
Dish, Slow Food USA, Women Against Abuse, Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move
Initiative and serves as the Chef Chair for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry
Jennifer's restaurant, Concrete Blonde, is currently under works.
