About A Chef’s Life: Farm-to-Table Cooking in the Berkshires

Released September 2014, Chef Ballon’s new book is not a cookbook, but rather a collection of about 45 short essays, written over the course of many years, about being a chef and also interacting farmers, customers, and staff. While the book does include some recipes, their inclusion is meant to help illustrate points about everyday life, changes in food trends, where and how chefs get inspiration, and what it is like to run a restaurant.

About Chef Ballon:

After graduating from Oberlin College, Michael Ballon moved to New York City where he began cooking for Lavin’s Restaurant. In 1984, Michael moved to the Berkshires to become chef at the Williamsville Inn in West Stockbridge, but when the Inn was sold, he moved back to New York City to work at Woods and Sofi. Returning to the Berkshires in 1989 to open the Castle Street Cafe where he has been based in ever since.
