Introducing Chef Matthew Secich…a new member of the Rabbit Hill family.
Food Lovers may remember Chef Secich from several acclaimed establishments, including The Inn at Erlowest on Lake George (earning four stars from the Times Union,) The Alpenhof Lodge, in Jackson Hole, WY (noted by critics as creating the best dining experience in all of Jackson Hole), The Oval Room in DC (receiving frequent raves in the Washington Post) and most recently, Charlie Trotters in Chicago.
After a one year sybatical, Chef Secich excitedly returns to the culianry stage. He now finds himself “at home” at the internationally acclaimed, AAA Four Diamond Rabbit Hill Inn, Vermont.
His impressive culinary journey began as a young gold-medal winning student of Johnson & Wales Culinary. Then spent several years with renowned Master Chefs domestically and abroad, including Chef Hartmut Handke, Patrick O’Connel at famed 5 Star The Inn at Little Washington, Chef Craig Shelton at The Ryland Inn, the Mobil Four Star, AAA Four Diamond, Relais Gourmand restaurant in Whitehouse, NJ. In France, he studied at Restaurant Pierre Gagnaire, with Guy Martin at Le Grand Vefour, and with Raymond Blanc at La Manior Aux Quat’ Saisons.
Inspired by his uncompromising commitment to the freshest seasonal ingredients sourced from the best local farms, he brings a heightened dimension of fine creative cuisine to Rabbit Hill Inn. Although there are strong French influences, his cooking style is without boundaries; beyond a label or description. Secich masterfully blends classical and new age techniques, unlimited imagination and artistry, topped with amazing attention to detail. The results are extraordinary.To see his exciting offerings, be sure to bookmark a link to our frequently changing menu.
