Schindlers with Chef John

The family finally got a chance to visit the infamous Chef John of The Italian Culinary Institute over the kids' fall break.  Bill first came here as a student almost a year ago to take the charcuterrie class, but since then, he has been coming back to give an intro to the master's students on ancestral diets, which includes flintknapping and butchering.  Brianna even got a chance to come over Spring Break 2017 to take a cheese-making course from Chef John with Bill.  It was fantastic to finally have all 5 Schindlers under the gorgeous roof of ICI to learn from Chef John and taste his delicious creations.  It will certainly be a Halloween to remember!!
