Linda And Ted
I'm Ted, an award winning chef, living a beautiful lifestyle I'd like to share with you—as well as coach you in a personalized cooking class. It’s rewarding to offer this from my home using local ingredients, an idea I helped pioneer with my wife, Linda, since '75. We are forerunners in wine pairings & vanguards in Vermont’s farm to table culinary community which champions local products. My restaurant career began at the age of 5, frying baloney & cooking minute rice on the radiator plu hanging out in the kitchens of my grandmother & restaurateur grandfather. As adults we wandered through some grand kitchens in France & Italy where my interest in food reignited. Our last restaurant, Hemingway's, received many accolades including Top 25 R's in America-Food & Wine Magazine & 50 Most Distinguished R's in the US-Condé Nast Traveler.
You'll eat what you make! BYOB Let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.
Everything you need to make a pizza.
Experience the beauty of Vermont living and immerse yourself in our intimate culinary arena at our mountain top home. If it suits you and weather permits around our rural community, we can also look for wild edibles to use in our cooking class--whatever your pleasure. Also for neighbors we have maple syrup makers, a passionate vigneron, and gardeners, all of whom welcome your visit.
Kitchen attire (somewhat weather dependent): long pants, long sleeve shirts, indoor shoes.
If weather is stormy we can pick you up at the base of our hill. If interested in a different class subject, and no one else has booked the same date we'll change the course for your pleasure!
