MEET OUR TEAM
Executive Chef Chris Siropaides
Siropaides got his start in the culinary world back at Montco Technical High School, where his cooking teacher saw something special and encouraged him to pursue his dream of becoming a chef. Chris then attended the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America (CIA). After graduating from the CIA, Chris started his career at Philadelphia Country Club and gained experience in all areas of the kitchen.
At the time, the biggest name in the Philadelphia culinary scene was Georges Perrier, so Chris knew he wanted to work for him. His dream eventually came true and he was hired at Brasserie Perrier, where he worked under chef Chris Scarduzio.
After working at Brasserie Perrier, he asked for a transfer to the now shuttered Georges’ in Wayne. He was quickly promoted to sous chef by Top Chef winner Kevin Sbraga, who was the executive chef at the time. His last three years of a 10-year stint at Georges’ was as the executive chef. After Georges’ closed, Chris helped re-open Brittingham’s in Lafayette Hill.
Chef Siropaides has had the pleasure of working with such big names as Top Chef winner Nicolas Elmi and Chopped champion Jeremy Duclut, just to name a few.
Siropaides believes that “a few well done components and clean flavors tie a dish together” and enjoys using “quality ingredients to let individual flavors shine through.
