January 7th and January 21st from 6:00-8:30pm featuring Chef Brud Holland.

Barnstormer Winery welcomes Chef Brud Holland back to kick off the Farmed and Forged Dinners. For over 25 years, Chef Brud Holland has embarked on a collective of Finger Lakes culinary and artistic endeavors—restaurant and bakery owner, author, small-scale food processor, nonprofit fundraiser, culinary arts instructor painter and chef. Respected for his dedication to all things grown and made in the Finger Lakes region of New York, Brud's passion for the arts, culinary and fine, perpetuates his belief that our regional food, drink and culture can be a quintessential FLX- inspired experience. Culminating all of this is Finger Lakes Made (FLXMade), the company Brud established in 2013 to extend his many years of collaborative efforts with some of the regions finest "makers"-farmers, winemakers, brewers, distillers, wood & metal artists, and glassblowers. Brud is creative, artistic, dynamic, and passionate. He is always pushing the FLX experience to new and different heights.

Finger Lakes Cider House is bringing our whole team to Barnstormer for 2 February evenings of farm food+wine+cider collaboration! Finger Lakes Cider House is on Cayuga Lake in Interlaken, and is a small cafe (serving lunch and brunch featuring Chef Isaiah), a tasting room for our own Kite & String Cider plus special guests and the home of Good Life Farm. We make Kite & String Cider in our cellar, focusing on traditional method sparkling ciders and exploring the range FLX orchard cider using our own organic Good Life Farm apples and a mix of apples from nearby Finger Lakes orchards. By integrating our farm, cidery, tasting room and cafe, we highlight the bounty of the Finger Lakes region through hearty food paired with cider in a cozy, welcoming space. We welcome visitors to drop in for lunch, have a flight, do a tasting and take a walk to visit our orchards, draft horses, greenhouses and ever changing farmscape.

Personal bio for Chef Isaiah:

Born in upstate NY, I began my food service career as the main cook for McConnellsville Golf Course during the summer after my 15th birthday.  Upon graduating high school, I moved to Ithaca to attend Cornell University's Landscape Architecture program.  The bountiful food, farms, and restaurants of the Finger Lakes area drew me to my first chef job as a line chef at the Heights Restaurant and H Bar.  I worked and learned for the next three years, before leaving to work at sister restaurants, Olivia Restaurant and Stellas Bar and Grill.  Over the next three years, my skillset and confidence in cooking grew, under executive chef and co-owner, Gregory Silverman.  I filled the roles of line chef, head chef, kitchen manager, catering chef, and pastry chef.  Upon the closing of Olivia, I moved into a more community oriented role, as the kitchen manager and chef of Loaves and Fishes of Tompkins County.  I worked to oversee more than 30 volunteers and community service workers, serving, on average, 130 free meals a day to all those who filled the parish hall of St. John's Episcopal Church.  During this time, I also began working as the chef at Word of Mouth Catering in Trumansburg.  I worked for over 7 years as kitchen manager at Loaves and Fishes, before leaving to become a fraternity chef at Alpha Sigma Phi for approximately 31/2 years.  I then found myself drawn to the Finger Lakes Cider House, working as a tasting room employee before accepting the role of chef.  I continue to work at both Word of Mouth Catering and the Cider House, while spending most of my free time running and operating a small B&B, The Guest Suite at Walnut Grove Farmhouse.  When I do get a moment to myself, I enjoy gardening, pen and ink drawing, hiking, camping, masonry, cooking at home (of course), reading, cleaning, and playing with my dog.  My passion for food and creating is fueled each day by all that our local farms and farmers produce.  I hope to continue on this path, in this area, for the rest of my life.

March 4th and March 18th from 6:00-8:30pm- Featuring Chef Jeremy Personius.
