Our Team


Karen Rogers
Founder and Director

Favorite Foods: I love fresh fruits and vegetables. Pickeled, sautéed, boiled, chopped, raw, cooked – there is no form that I don’t enjoy. And anything with a Moroccan twist.

Molly Shea
Chef-in-Training Program Manager

Favorite FoodsIf it’s dinner time, give me squash. Butternut, acorn, pumpkin – I like them all. They pair well with so many different savory and earthy flavors. For a snack, I like to crunch on anything fermented. Whole pickles out of the jar and spoonfuls of sauerkraut work for me…usually followed by a breath mint.

Andrea Levy
Culinary Director

Favorite FoodsMy biggest weakness is any type of chocolate dessert. But as someone with a plant-based diet I’m also overly satisfied with any plate that includes lots of vegetables, specially fresh, local produce. Im also a sucker for soups and crunchy, fermented or pickled snacks.

Kevin Longa
AmeriCorps VISTA Video and Media Manager

Favorite Foods: Anything that gets me out of my comfort zone – from live shrimp in Copenhagen to balut in the Philippines. Plus, you can never go wrong with Thai.

Lydia Fletcher
Chef-in-Training Fundraising Coordinator

Favorite Foods: After spending a season working on an organic farm, nothing can compare to freshly grown produce. I love experimenting with in-season produce and seeing what I can make! I especially love anything spicy or with coconut milk added.

Katarina Krska

Favorite foods: From European pastries to dishes from my home country like kale and potato soup, fruit filled dumplings or freshly baked bread… the list of my favorites is very long. Good thing cooking and baking is a passion of mine. But if I had to pick just one food, then raspberries – straight from the garden. Or better yet – picked up while hiking in the mountains!

Megan Barrie
Chef Instructor

Favorite Foods: My favorite foods are all about comfort. I love all noodles and curries, particularly when paired with a nice seasonal veg or two. I’m a big believer in your plate looking like the rainbow, so when in doubt, I try to mix textures and flavors to get a hearty combo of comfort and nutrients in a meal.
