Center Grove High School


Chef Susanne Ebacher-Grier  was bitten by the kitchen bug early in life, working every position from bartender to line cook. Her passion for this work led her to earn her culinary education from École Grégoire Ferrandi in Paris and Sullivan University. She worked in professional kitchens for years before moving into education, where she flourished among curious and inquisitive students eager to learn culinary skills. It was those students who grew to trust her far beyond the confines of the kitchen, and her deep personal connection to her students helps push them to achieve more in their careers and in life. “Real” is a frequent descriptor her students use to describe her, perfectly encapsulating the authenticity and candor she brings to the classroom.  Chef Susanne is passionate about high school culinary competitions such as ProStart, SkillsUSA and FCCLA.
She currently is the president of the Greater Indianapolis American Culinary Federation.  Chef Susanne has received several accolades  from the Greater Indianapolis American Culinary Federation such as Chef of the Year and Pastry chef of the Year.  Recently she was awarded ProStart New Teacher of the Year from the Indiana FCCLA/ProStart.
