Owner Eddie Tancredi Culinary

Born and raised in Solon, Ohio a suburb of Cleveland, OH, Eddie Tancredi envisioned at a young age that one day he would own a restaurant. With little knowledge of the culinary industry, upon high school graduation, he attended Le Cordon Bleu in Pittsburgh, PA eager to learn all there was about the industry.
Being the competitor Eddie is, he quickly became a member of the Junior Hot Food Team while learning the basics of cooking. Eddie excelled at his studies while holding down a full time job as well as practicing and competing with the team.
Upon graduation he was honored as Class Salutatorian and awarded the prestigious Academie Brillat-Savarin medal through Chaine Des Rotisseurs which is given to only a select few culinary students nationwide each year.  Upon graduation he was honored as Class Salutatorian and awarded the prestigious Academie Brillat-Savarin medal through Chaine Des Rotisseurs which is given to only a select few culinary students nationwide each year.  Anxious to take the next step, Eddie moved to the beautiful mountain state of West Virginia where he was accepted into the The Greenbrier Apprenticeship Program under chef Timmins CMC at the young age of 20.  Eddie has competed in 30 international and domestic competitions in the past 10 years. Following completion of the program, Eddie took three months and back packed it to Europe staging at various places in Germany, Italy and London including The Fat Duck at the time considered one of the top restaurants in the world.  Next up for Eddie was to help open up a brand new restaurant under decorated Chef Rosendale CMC as the sous chef where he was in charge of running the fish station and making five course monthly menus and daily eight course blind menus.  Towards the end of his three years stay at Rosendale's Eddie was ready to prepare for one of his dreams … becoming a Culinary Olympian. Scoring gold in hot food tryouts earned Eddie a spot on the 2012 team in 2009. Upon making the team, Eddie returned to the Greenbrier as Chef opening and running the new Italian restaurant, The Forum.  Eddie also wanted to bring recognition and represent the Cleveland area by competing for Regional Chef of The Year; which he won, and moved on to compete and win 2013 USA Chef of the Year competition held in Las Vegas in July 2013, which earned him to represent USA in Greece for the Global Chef Challenge.  Eddie has returned to his home town of Cleveland where he is the owner of Eddie Tancredi Culinary where he specializes in catering, consulting and cooking classes.
