The Chef

Chef Ian Peckel is a native of Augusta, GA. After graduating from Georgia Southern University, he attended Johnson and Whales University in Vail, CO, where he received his Associate Degree in Culinary Arts. He spent five years in Vail working for such prestigious restaurants in the Valley as the Cordellia Golf Resort and Allies Cabin in the Beaver Creek Club.

Returning to Augusta, he opened Cafe on the Green in National Hills Shopping Center and started a catering business in his spare time. The catering side of the business flourished, and since it was in such high demand, he shut down the restaurant and established The Silver Palm Catering Company.
