Executive Chef Susan Delbert is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., one of the world’s most renowned schools for culinary arts. Before coming to the Press Club, she served as a sous chef at the Old Ebbitt Grill, the nation’s sixth highest-grossing restaurant. Prior to her career in food service, Delbert served as a tax attorney and as a partner in a law firm. In addition, she served in Alaska as an assistant district attorney and an assistant state attorney general.

Delbert describes her cooking style as an incorporation of the freshest local ingredients — often with an Italian or Mediterranean slant — whether it’s wild salmon in Alaska or Silver Queen corn. We look forward to what her talents will bring to the Club’s cuisine and hope you will join us in welcoming her to our team.


"Yet another lure: Delbert, 58, was the top student in her class when she graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 2001."
