Meet Chef Peter

Chef Peter Glander

Chef Peter Glander, a native of Indiana, came to Knoxville as a young boy to visit his Aunt Beulah, who ultimately inspired his culinary journey. He specifically remembers long days in the kitchen making yeast rolls, cheesecakes, bourbon balls and Coca-Cola cured hams. Peter knew from a young age he wanted to pursue a career in the culinary industry and left the cornfields of Indiana to attend the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park, NY. Before he graduated from the CIA, Peter had the opportunity to work in the kitchen of Chez Panisse in Berkeley, CA. This experience and additional education from farm to table pioneer, Alice Waters, solidified his love for seasonal and regional food and an appreciation for farmers and artisans. Back in New York, he was fortunate to gather additional experience and knowledge from culinary stars Jean Georges Vongerichten and Gabriel Kreuther. Before leaving the Big Apple, he worked with hospitality guru, Danny Meyer, and Chef Kreuther to open The Modern at the Modern Museum of Art in New York City.

Upon returning to Tennessee, Peter served as Executive Chef of The Barn at Blackberry Farm and most recently as the Director of Culinary and Research at Ruby Tuesday. Throughout his career and various roles, Peter has always thrived on sharing his passion for hospitality through simple, fresh and seasonal food.

Peter is married to Ashley Glander, who also worked at Blackberry Farm, and together they have two beautiful children, Eliza Kate and Cal Hudson. They are extremely thankful for the Beall family, as Blackberry Farm is what brought both Peter and Ashley to East Tennessee and has inspired their family to chase their dreams!
