A revolving cast of friends and mentors, from Napa to New England – highlighting chefs,
winemakers, artisans, oyster farmers, cheese purveyors, and more…
After years of collaborating with friends and mentors, we decided it was time to bring in some of these friends and mentors so our clientele could experience first-hand where our inspiration stemmed from. We began to invite featured guests to come and spend a few hours behind the chef’s counter, doing what they do best for private audiences.
The Cornerstone Chef’s Series debuted in 2015 with Tim Boddell of Francis Ford Coppola Winery’s restaurant, Rustic. Since the first installment, we have had an array of industry forerunners— from cheese connoisseurs to masters of seafood — come and share their knowledge and expertise. To name a few, we have had Zoe Brickely from Vermont’s Jasper Hill Farms, Row 34’s Francisco Manilla, Tom Dean from The Cellar at Doe Run, and Matthieu & Maggie Baurkot Celerier of Unis Star Importing. Stay tuned for the next episodes, we’re looking forward to building on this inspiring cast of culinary characters.
