Ingrid Chen is the Executive Chef at Remedy Wine Bar in Portland, Oregon. Chen’s dedication to elegant but simple food pairs perfectly with the wine and philosophy at Remedy. Inspired daily by the abundance of Portland’s fresh ingredients and trips to the farmer’s market, Chen lets the individual components of her dishes shine. 
Even though she loves Taiwanese food now and recognizes its positive influence from her childhood, Chen’s first cooking experiences occurred when she wanted to break away from her family’s Taiwanese food traditions. As a result, she started cooking up macaroni and cheese and other “non-Taiwanese” dishes at the early age of eight. Chen began working in restaurants in North Carolina at 19, doing everything from hosting to waiting tables to bussing. When she moved to Portland in 2002, she continued to work the front of house before attending culinary school at the Oregon Culinary Institute in 2008. 
While attending culinary school, a position to work under Pastry Chef Jeff McCarthy at Portland’s Ten 01 restaurant opened up. She seized the opportunity, and has since worked at other top Portland restaurants including Clyde Common, Olympic Provisions, Brasserie Montmartre and Aviary. After working at larger restaurants, she wanted to do something smaller and more intimate. It was during this time that she met Michael Madigan, owner of Portland’s culinary incubator KitchenCru and co-owner of Remedy Wine Bar, while doing special dinner events for KitchenCru. 
Chen’s favorite part about cooking at Remedy Wine Bar is that she gets to pair the food with the wine, and not the other way around. For her, it’s a welcome and inspiring challenge. When she’s not at Remedy, she is eating soup, running and exercising.
