Chef Ian Palazzola: Executive Chef, Acorn (Denver, CO)

Virginia-native Ian Palazzola attended culinary school in Atlanta, Georgia. During his time in school and after graduation, Palazzola worked at Rathbun’s Restaurant, a local institution. After rising to a sous chef position, Ian decided it was time for a change. He then moved on to work at Restaurant Eugene for James Beard award-winning chef Linton Hopkins. It was there that Ian learned to cook with care and artistry and understood the importance of developing relationships with farmers - a major influence on the way he cooks today. Looking to expand beyond his Southern comfort zone, Palazzola headed West to Aspen’s The Little Nell, where he worked as a sous chef for three years. Soon after, he connected with Mourad Lahlou to help open the eponymous Bay Area fine-dining temple, Mourad. In under a year, Mourad received a Michelin star and Palazzola was promoted to chef de cuisine, where he commanded the Moroccan spice pantry with hints of his Southern roots shining through. In 2016, Palazzola was named a "Rising Star Chef" by StarChefs. Today, Ian helms the kitchen at the award-winning Acorn in Denver, Colorado, where he is the Executive Chef
