Chef Ron Kneabone

Executive Chef at Terrapin Grille

Fine dining is Ron Kneabone's passion and profession. Beginning in 1987 after graduating from the Culinary Institute of Canada in Prince Edward Island Ron Kneabone travelled across the country and around the world. Ron Kneabone's inspiration and experiences are formed in part by spending over a decade in Strasbourg, France.

Ron Kneabone left the flavour paradise to return to Canada and establish a strong presence in Niagara. Starting with a popular Winery in Vineland, his work took him beyond Wine Country to the Honeymoon Capital. Ron Kneabone had full creative control taking on both administrative and kitchen duties at the Terrapin Grille Fallsview Restaurant in Niagara Falls. It is extremely rare for a chef of his calibre perform all of the work that Executive Chef Ron Kneabone does - and there are no signs that he will be stopping.

Outside the workplace Ron Kneabone has been a college instructor, womens hockey coach, and arts benefactor. His generousity and work in Niagara has made a lasting impact. In the wine community Ron Kneabone is known for being a driving force and amazing client to world-class wineries like Inniskillin.
