Eric Ripert Names Chef For 10 Arts
Michael Klein reports Eric Ripert has named the chef de Cuisine for his 10 Arts by Eric Ripert Restaurant at the Ritz.
She’s a Philly girl, Jennifer Carroll, 33. Grew up in the city’s Somerton section — stay-at-home mom Jean and race-car owner dad Ray — and went to Mount St. Joseph Academy in Flourtown, as her Mountie classmates (1993) are proud to point out.
She went to the Catholic University in D.C. to study law, came home to St, Joe’s, and decided to try culinary school instead. She’s a grad of the Restaurant School here, followed by time in the Manayunk kitchens of Derek Davis at Sonoma and Arroyo Grille. After a year downtown at the late Avenue B, she escaped to San Francisco, where she worked at restaurants Julia (now closed) and CafÃ© Kati. She’s sous chef at Le Bernardin, basically the No. 3 in one of the top-rated kitchens in North America.
