He is an accomplished chef and farmer
Chris was born into a farming family at Martha’s Vineyard. His grandfather owned a farm called The Beetlebung and, that’s where Chris started farming. Chris’ father taught him how to farm, fish, and hunt.
With time, Chris developed a love for cooking. He moved away from the Island to become a chef in restaurants such as Babbo and The River Cafe. At Babbo, Chris worked under famous chef Mario Batali. He then went on to work as an executive chef at Beach Plum Inn & Restaurant.
