Featured Speaker: 

Chef Deborah Scott | Executive Chef/Partner, Cohn Restaurant Group

As a native of Virginia Beach, Deborah perfected her talent of pairing eclectic flavors during her graduate course program from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. Deborah quickly gained hands-on experience at the award-winning Clark Cookhouse and Whitehouse Tavern in Newport, Rhode Island. She then moved on to be Executive Sous Chef for two years at Monterey Plaza Hotel’s Delfino’s On The Bay.

After moving to California in 1992, Deborah Scott opened the acclaimed Mediterraneo in Alpine. Her cooking demonstrates a unique creative flair that has built a strong following of loyal clients. Deborah introduced her first Indigo Grill to San Diego’s Little Italy in 1994. She created the restaurant’s menu, operated both the front and back of the house, and developed everything from the logo to Indigo Grill’s unique décor. The restaurant caught the eye of up and coming restaurateurs David and Lesley Cohn.

In October 1995, Deborah met with David and Lesley Cohn about creating a restaurant with a southwestern influence and Asian flair. Deborah Scott has since teamed up with the Cohns to launch Kemo Sabe in Hillcrest. Six years later, the same trio collaborated on bringing back Chef Deborah’s beloved Indigo Grill in stylish Little Italy and in early 2005, David and Lesley Cohn announced that Chef Deborah Scott would become a full partner.

The ability to execute her visions has been recognized by locals and peers year after year in the form of numerous awards from local voters and peers like Best of the Best, San Diego’s Favorite Chef to Condé Nast Travelers, America’s HOT Tables.
