Welcome Chef, Michael Ehlenfeldt to The Inn at Weathersfield
MICHAEL EHLENFELDT joins The Inn!
Finding the right executive chef doesn’t happen overnight when you’re sitting in the middle of the woods in Southern Vermont.
We’ve learned from experience it takes someone with true experience, a shared philosophy, maturity and an honest respect for guests’ needs in order to uphold and carry on an established culinary excellence.
“We’re thrilled to make this announcement. Ironically, we crossed paths twice with Michael over the last few years but the timing just wasn’t right,” said Richard. “Michael’s ‘the real deal.’ He’s not afraid of hard work and paid his dues in professional kitchens. He grew up on a Wisconsin dairy farm and learned early how to garden, forage, pickle, can and butcher as a child and continues to this day. For years, he also taught cooking classes to under-served urban populations in Boston.”
Michael comes to the Inn from Solo Farm & Table in South Londonderry where he was a key member of their culinary team. While retaining his home in Charlestown, NH, just over the Connecticut River, the majority of Michael’s 25+ year culinary career kept him in Boston, including 14 years as the executive sous chef under renowned chef/owner Gordon Hamersley of Hamersley Bistro.
Michael will develop and execute The Inn’s menus for the restaurant, weddings and special events, which includes our August 22nd Annual Farm Dinner Celebration. Additionally, he will be one of the key instructors in The Hidden Kitchen, The Inn’s non-professional cooking classroom where chefs and cookbook authors teach hands-on and demonstration classes.
