About Chef Zachary Pelliccio:
Raised on a farm in Lancaster, PA, Chef Pelliccio’s parents taught him about hard work and farm fresh food. He started his culinary career apprenticing under chef Anthony DiStefano. Later, he attended The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Philadelphia, and started his Philadelphia culinary career at Patou Restaurant working with Exec Chef Patrice Rames.

Pelliccio followed chef Colin Thompson to the famous farm-to-table restaurant Farmacia, where he worked with other renowned chefs such as Jesse Fellows and Kevin von Klause. Pelliccio’s career continued to other Philadelphia institutions such as Barclay Prime and Public House at Logan Square, where he reunited with DiStefano.

Chef Pelliccio has remained loyal to supporting small, local farms and his inventive, bold yet simplistic style has brought a wonderful renaissance to Flow’s menus.

Flow Bar and Restaurant is located at 268 West Broadway in  Jim Thorpe, PA 18229


  1. I want to come! This sounds fabulous and I'm not sure why this does not happen more often. I'm constantly turning down meat laden events like this in my city and long for a Vegan event in the same manner. Congrats to you both for organizing and hosting what I know will be unbelievable.

    1. I hope you will join us! iI am sure this is going to be a great night!
