Associate Director of Admissions
The culinary world is in Jock Grundy’s blood. His father was the Comptroller at the legendary Pontchartrain Hotel on St. Charles Street in the Garden District of New Orleans, where Jock would watch the Mardi Gras parades roll by. In 1982, Jock landed his first bartending gig at The Sheraton on Canal Street in The French Quarter. Following his musical ambitions he moved to San Francisco and landed a job at the Marriott on Columbus and Bay in Fisherman’s Wharf. Soon after, New York City was calling his name and he’s been here ever since - eating his way through every neighborhood. Jock has been working in culinary education for over 14 years, helping students realize their culinary dreams. “My wife is now in the culinary industry as well, working as the Copy Chief for Saveuer Magazine, we are a food power couple!"
