Chef/Restaurant Career Path Webinar

As a kickoff to its pilot chef in residence program, the Lunder Institute for American Art is partnering with DavisConnects to present a webinar for Colby students and others interested in careers in the culinary arts.

On Thursday, April 6, 7–8 pm, spend an hour with four accomplished chefs to learn more about what it takes to pursue a career as a chef or restauranteur. This virtual event will include introductory remarks by each panelist, opening questions about each chef’s individual path, and an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.

The four panelists are:

Jordan Benissan, chef and owner of Mé Lon Togo, a West African themed restaurant in Rockland, Maine.

Dave Mallari, chef and owner of the Sinful Kitchen in Portland, Maine, and a former Chopped contestant.

Louis Pickens, chef and owner of Black Betty’s Bistro, a catering kitchen and restaurant based in Portland, Maine.

Ben Wexler-Waite, a Colby College alumnus and chef-owner of Il Leone, a seasonal, outdoor pizzeria located on Peaks Island, Maine.

Join live via Zoom.
