Rachelle Crocker - The Chef

Inspired by the season’s abundance, the old world, the beautiful - Rachelle celebrates the delicious and the nutritious inherent in foods. The feral nature of what surfaces with a child left to her own devices brought Rachelle to harvesting winter berries in the woods and selling them on the side of the road for 5 cents a bunch, and collecting chicken eggs to cook over a candle in the barnyard.

Her skill evolved with the gifted wisdom of all of the cooks that she has shared kitchens with. A jewish father, growing up in her mother's homestead, wedded to her heritage of nomadic / magpie drifters, Rachelle's ability to create a loving and efficient kitchen anywhere with anything has itself created her practice.

Going from working in deli's to working at a small family run Thai restaurant, the door opened for Rachelle that food can be it's own story in a tiny porcelain bowl.

Rachelle cooked privately and for large parties and events in her early twenties in New York City. She Chefed a farm to table restaurant that sourced from her own kitchen garden, her mother's homestead and a few other farms local to Southern NH. She now runs Honey n' Schmaltz Catering, Cooking, Confections, and Cocktails, a sister business to EIEIO Farm which her mother has been operating for 35 years. She also freelances as a menu developer.

Beginning with the childhood tea party, to the drinking party, to the food party- Rachelle's love is rooted in feeding the fabric of a person through celebration and the vibrancy of food itself. Continually seeking what it means to be fed from one person and place to the next, Rachelle explores the food that we each need and want, individually and together.
