Gallit Sammon grew up on Long Island, New York where as a young girl she began her career of cooking in her high schools’ culinary arts program. Following high school she furthered her education by attending the Culinary Institute of America. From these solid beginnings she went on to work for many renowned restaurants across the East Coast and abroad. The Greenbriar Inn, Waldorf Astoria and Café Daniel are just a few well known restaurants that grace her resume. Seeking further challenge she taught at the Culinary Institute of the Rockies for five years before returning to Maine to be closer to family. Once in Maine, she started farming for the Chase Family Farm in Belfast and later New Leaf Farm in Durham. Once again though, she found herself back in the kitchen of the esteemed Maine Dining Room at the Harraseeket Inn in Freeport as the Chef de Cuisine. On the loading dock of the kitchen is where she met Chris. Following their courtship and marriage she moved onto the farm and started farming full time.
