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.

Charlie also had an honorable mention in a Valley Reporter article about the Taste of the Valley at Sugarbush Resort. You can read that article here. If you’ve eaten at the Round Barn you know we LOVE our chef and the food we present. A guest recently shared their breakfast experience in a review on tripadvisor – “Though dining in town for lunch and dinner was good, after eating breakfast at this place anything else leaves something to be desired. Breakfast typically has three courses, friendly and wonderful service, and the seating outside on the veranda is a delight. Beyond that, words simply cannot adequately describe the food- it was so fresh, inventive, flavorful, satisfying, and scrumptious– few meals in my life compare. Some of the garnishes and ingredients are grown right on the property of the inn or by the chef with other facets produced locally.”
If you haven’t visited the property we look forward to welcoming you and introducing you to our fabulous Chef!
