We're thrilled to welcome Minneapolis chef and sustainable food advocate Scott Pampuch! Chef Pampuch will be working with our culinary team and front-of-the-house staff to consult on all food and beverage operations.
Founder of the acclaimed Corner Table restaurant in the Twin Cities, Pampuch brings a passion for fresh seasonal ingredients and simple Midwest cuisine. He was voted one of Minnesota's top 25 chefs by his peers and is the creator of Tour de Farm MN, a dinner series that celebrates local farmers and food artisans. Pampuch has been sharing his musings on food and farms as the host of Ovation's "In Search of Food," including an episode preparing a raw, vegan, gluten-free meal for musician and avocado farmer Jason Mraz.
"Milwaukee is exploding on the sustainability scene, with inventive and flourishing operations like Sweet Water Organics and Growing Power's Will Allen as a national leader on agriculture and food policy," says Pampuch. "I'm excited to tap into these resources and continue to push the envelope on creative cuisine already happening at The Iron Horse Hotel."
His food advocacy includes engagements on Minnesota Public Radio, local radio and television appearances, national culinary events, syndicated television and a documentary, being featured in "Primal Cuts: Cooking with America's Best Butchers." Awards have included Best Restaurants 2010: Farm to Table, Best of Food + Dining 2009, Best Restaurants: Farm Fresh, Locally Raised 2006, Locavore of the Year, Critics' Choice: Chef-Driven Zagat Survey and was a James Beard Foundation Awards Semi-Finalist.
