For over 15 years I have been doing this cooking thing. Along the way I have developed a pretty extensive list of wholesalers and farmers that I work with. Some come and go, but for the most part the ones that produce a great product are still operating. Each of them carry something that is unique to themselves. The all are truly artist in what they do.
When I was a kid I really never enjoyed school in the formal sense. I did enjoy many aspects of school i.e. summer break, weekends and lunch time. The one thing that stands out to me the most was some of the amazing field trips that we took. Nothing gets me more excited than exploring and discovering something new and interesting. Solitude Catering prides itself on using some of the best suppliers and farmers in the country. This is only possible because of our desire to still take field trips. We love driving around the back roads of Vermont and finding that one person who smokes the most amazing bacon. We love driving through the North Country of upstate New York and seeing that one person who grows lettuce like a champ. The list goes on and on. Even though we are grown up and supposedly supposed to act like adults our desire to travel is still as strong today as it was when we were kids!
