Using local seasonal ingredients, you and a partner will follow Billings Farm’s Chef Emery as you prepare your own multi-course, Mediterranean-cuisine inspired menu. Chef Emery will highlight garden-fresh ingredients local to our region, with bold and crisp flavors and light, healthy fair, sharing her extensive knowledge of the cooking process and how to use the local, seasonal ingredients. Dine on your delicious creations in the beautiful, restored barn at Billings Farm. The evening will conclude with a delectable dessert. About Chef Emery Gray Emery Gray, Farm to Table Manager at Billings Farm & Museum and former Pastry Chef de Partie at the Woodstock Inn and Resort, had a passion for food at a very young age. Seeing the way that people connected through the growing, sharing and cooking of food, inspired her to make a career in the kitchen. She attended The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, earning her Associates Degree in Baking and Pastry Arts and her Bachelor’s in Business Management. Traveling the country and the world has translated into a deep appreciation for sustainability of local food systems, and all types of outdoor pursuits year-round. The Date Night Cooking fun will continue on November 3 with an Italian menu. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with registration questions.
