Local celebrity chef, Philippe M. Gehin, is taking on a new challenge as he steps into his role as the executive chef of Creekside at Shallowford this month. After years of schooling in France, Mr. Gehin has spent nearly his entire life around food and fine dining—a skill set he is now bringing to a Chattanooga holiday retirement community.
After cooking for the likes of President Barack Obama, Harrison Ford and Madonna, Mr. Gehin will be at the helm in the kitchen of Creekside at Shallowford.
Much of Mr. Gehin’s experience comes from various settings throughout Tennessee including his role as program director at Virginia College in Chattanooga and executive chef at the Frist Center of the Visual Arts in Nashville. He has spent the last two years preparing meals at The Brando Hotel in French Polynesia.
