Quillisascut School of the Domestic Arts

We are very fortunate that our parent company, Bon Appétit, believes in a sustainable food culture and  encourages a farm-to-table mentality. Once a year a few lucky colleagues are offered the opportunity to learn from experienced producers through a hands-on immersion course at Quillisascut School of the Domestic Arts.

Our own Director of Catering and Events, Anna Bazzi, had the opportunity to also gain knowledge of small acreage sustainable farming a couple years ago. About her experience, Anna said, “When you’re cracking bags and bags of walnut for walnut oil and shelling beans for storage by hand, you no longer take for granted the bottles of fancy oils and glossy bags of beans in the kitchen.” …… “When you’re closer to your food provider, you are willing to — and really want to — pay more. When you pay more for your meat and produce, you appreciate it more and waste less.”

Interested in learning more? Vera Chang, our West Coast Fellow, contributed to Bon Appétit’s blog and has a more in-depth overview about the  experience! HERE
