Marla Gilman is the owner and chef of Northern Feast Catering. Growing up she was always excited about food, but it was at college that her true passion came to bloom. At the University of Vermont she learned the importance of agriculture, eating locally, and environmental consciousness. As an Entrepreneurship major and Food Systems minor, Marla dived into the connection of cooking seasonally and sourcing local. She then spent time working at a cooking school in New Jersey, and farming on a few small vegetable farms in New York.

After learning to grow food, Marla backpacked in Europe for 3 months exploring the tastes and flavors of France, Italy, and Germany. From there she attend the well-known Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland. This school, located on a 100 acre organic farm, is where she developed and honed her culinary skills. After cooking school Marla had the privilege to work at 'Blue Hill at Stone Barns' and then spent time making cheese in Vermont.

In the Fall of 2012 she visited a friend who was farming in the Adirondacks. He was working on an organic vegetable farm in Keeseville, New York located within a mile of a butcher shop, creamery, and future farm brewery. The beautiful surroundings and ability to eat quality food, grown locally and consciously, was exactly where she wanted to be. The following Summer she moved to the area and started work as a line cook at a farm-to-table restaurant in Lake Placid. From there she helped start and manage a cafe on a nearby dairy farm and then a few years later started Northern Feast Catering.

Marla's family comes from a long line of cooks, bakers, and entrepreneurs. They have worked in the food industry for many generations and it is a true honor for her to keep the family tradition alive.
