“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” – J.R.R Tolkein
The Seasoned Farmhouse flourishes because of Chef Tricia Wheeler who took her love of cooking and ran with it. Ever since graduating from The Ohio State University, Tricia has been an entrepreneur in Columbus, Ohio. She attended The French Culinary Institute and graduated in 2009 at #1 in her class. Having always envisioned owning a cooking school and event space, Tricia moved back to Columbus and made all her years of dreaming come true. Featuring local farmers and artisans, as well as many talented local cooking instructors, The Seasoned Farmhouse is a booming success. Check out events at www.theseasonedfarmhouse.com
