Your Chef for the evening:

Your food is being prepared by the exceptional culinary staff of Jeffrey A. Miller Catering.  Jeffrey and his staff set themselves a challenge for this special farm-to-table dinner.  All the ingredients will come from farms within a 100-mile radius of the Rancocas Creek Farm.  This challenge has led them down some creative culinary paths!

Chef/Owner Jeffrey Miller had the privilege to apprentice at some of the most revered restaurants in New York (La Cote Basque, Le Cirque, An American Place, Bouley) and on the Continent (France’s Michelin-starred Moulin de Mougins, and London’s Simpsons-in-the-Strand). The creativity in presentation, emphasis on freshness, and attention to detail that he learned at these world-class restaurants have helped create the high standards that define Jeffrey Miller cuisine today.
