Charlie Menard "Executive Chef"
Charlie Menard
Our Executive Chef Charlie started with us in 2000. He is a rarity amongst chefs with an easy smile and a no problem manner. He makes the food world go around, from 2 people to 2,000, all with style and panache. A native Vermonter and graduate from the New England Culinary Institute, Charlie has traveled the world cooking up a storm; but he always knew that he was going to return to Vermont someday. Utilizing our certified organic gardens or working with local farms, his passion for local foods make our weddings extravagant. We are glad he found a home here because he is more than just our chef, as he cares about all aspects of our company.
That would be hard for anybody," ..., 27 Mar 2014 [cached]
That would be hard for anybody," laments Charlie Menard, who's been head chef at the Inn at the Round Barn since 2000. (Most of DeFreest's employees have been with her for more than a decade.) "But AnneMarie is a tough woman, and she's been able to carry a lot."
That she has, but now DeFreest needs to pick her battles. Last year, she got news that her cancer had returned just as she and her attorney were preparing a case before the Vermont Supreme Court. They were appealing a decision by the Vermont Department of Taxes, which had fined her $95,000 for not collecting a 9 percent service tax on her staff who serve at Round Barn functions.

The Inn at Round Barn Farm and our Award Winning Chef, Charlie Menard!
We are VERY proud of our Executive Chef Charlie Menard and his team. They recently participated in two local events The Vermont Fresh Network's Annual Forum and The Taste of The Valley in Waitsfield.
In a recent article by Burlington's Seven Days Newspaper they noted the win for Charlie and his team for the "Best Bite"! "Among dishes from nearly 30 of the state's top chefs, Menard's dual offerings of basil-white-chocolate ice cream with almond tuiles; and sweet-corn ice cream with tomato jam, pesto cookie and candied fennel were a clear standout to the foodie attendees. You can read more of the article here.
