Chef Champe Speidel is the chef-owner of Persimmon in Providence, RI. Speidel — a six-time semifinalist for a James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef: Northeast — takes an ingredient- and technique-driven approach to modern American cuisine.  After a successful eleven-year run in Bristol, RI, Speidel and his wife, Lisa, relocated to Providence and reimagined their concept to open the “new Persimmon” in May 2016. The restaurant has been featured in Food & Wine, The Washington Post, Food Arts, Art Culinaire, Yankee Magazine, and The Boston Globe. 

A graduate of the four-year culinary arts program at Johnson & Wales University, Speidel received the honorary Doctor of Culinary Arts from his alma mater in 2016. Speidel also owns and operates Persimmon Provisions in Barrington, RI. His model is the quintessential neighborhood butcher shop updated with a modern aesthetic and culinary sensibility.
