NCJW STL’s Spring Luncheon

April 24, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

$60 – $1000

A conversation with Ben Poremba and his Mom, Rachel Poremba
Ben Poremba is the Chef/Owner of Bengelina Hospitality Group, the St. Louis-based, award-winning operator of Nixta and Bar Limón, Elaia, Olio, Parigi, and La Patisserie Chouquette. Poremba is a three-time James Beard Award semifinalist in the category of Best Chef-Midwest, and he continues taking the St. Louis dining scene by storm.

An Israeli native, Poremba learned the art of cooking (and eating) from his mother, Rachel, who had a 40-year career as a chef and culinary educator herself. Poremba moved to St. Louis to earn a BA in philosophy from the University of Missouri. Poremba is moved by how food plays a central role in celebrations, rituals, holidays, and virtually every ceremony humans are engaged in. “I aim to create food that takes you somewhere,” says Poremba. “Either somewhere familiar that invokes memories, or to a place you’ve never been before. Diners don’t need to go to the theater for a full night out; I want my restaurants to be the show itself for guests.”
