Scott Ketterman began his culinary career working in a family-run seafood restaurant in coastal Maryland. Lured to Portland by the proximity to the mountains and ocean, as well as the emerging culinary scene, Ketterman mentored with many chefs eager to demonstrate their cooking techniques and passion for fresh and local ingredients. In Portland, he has built upon his expertise working at Viande Meats, Paley’s Place, and The Heathman Restaurant & Bar. Scott has also spent extensive time traveling abroad working in some of Spain’s renowned restaurants. He honed his skills as a stagiaire at Mugaritz, a Michelin two-star restaurant near the ‘food mecca’ of San Sebastian, as well as at Pedro Subijana’s Akelare, a Michelin three-star restaurant.

Upon returning to Portland, Scott found his place as the chef of Simpatica where he spent four years at the helm before forging out on his own. In 2011, Scott and his wife Emily founded Crown Paella, a catering and event company focused on traditional Spanish cuisine.
