Fondue in Vermont at Stowe Mountain Lodge
After I finished my four year culinary apprenticeship I knew I was not ready for the real world. I decided to go to Europe and spend a year in Switzerland training with the best chefs I could find.

This we simply could not have for our valued guests.

It’s a perfect scene for an unforgettable event.
