Stowe Mountain Lodge Partners with The Cellars at Jasper Hill Cheese
for the Second installment in the “From the Kitchen” video series as newly launched menu continues to receive praise
As a loyal advocate of the farm-to-table dining concept and a cheese expert himself (after spending time at the beginning of his career in Luzerne, Switzerland) Chef Berry is honored to work with one of the most respected cheese makers currently in the industry, and with the largest and most extensive cheese caves in the country.
“It’s a great honor to be able to cook with Andy and Mateo Kehler’s cheeses, who founded Jasper Hill Farm nine years ago and are now aging some of the best cheeses in the country,” says Chef Berry. “They had a vision and have stuck to it, and now, not only Vermont, but the rest of the world are able to enjoy their creations. The fact that they are Stowe Mountain Lodge’s neighbors makes it that much better”
The Cellars at Jasper Hill is a piece of infrastructure designed to help local farms reach and succeed in a national marketplace: a bridge between small-scale production and large scale markets. The building itself is a network of seven underground vaults - a total of 22,000 square feet nestled beneath the pastures where Jasper Hill's forty Ayrshire cows graze. Each cave rests at distinct temperature and humidity levels, calibrated for different cheese styles. Developing wheels undergo a customized testing and tasting schedule before getting wrapped-up at their target age profile. By offering a collection of professionally aged and marketed cheeses, the Cellars at Jasper Hill allow its producers to focus on the most important aspects of their trade - quality milk production and cheese making technique.
On the recently launched menu, Stowe Mountain Lodge features some of the finest cheeses from Jasper Hill, along with other new dishes such as the signature summer menu item, the Lobster “Pot Pie.”
Solstice, Stowe Mountain Lodge’s award-winning restaurant, features innovative artisan cuisine in a relaxed yet elegant environment. Boasting floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook Spruce Peak, with décor by coveted design and craft makers, Shackleton Thomas, based in Bridgewater, Vermont, Solstice reflects the natural elements of the luxurious alpine lodge. Strong relationships with neighboring food purveyors and farmers allows Stowe Mountain Lodge to offer the farm-to-table dining concept as an entirely unique and authentic experience for guests and larger meeting groups alike.
