 We recently asked Lachlan Mackinnon Patterson the guest chef for Tour de Smokies a few questions!  Check out the Tour de Smokies event here at Blackberry Farm!

What ingredient can you not live without?

Olive oil and great vinegar! I love vegetables and salads, and without the right oil and vinegar your in a big jam!

If you could only cook with one pan/dish what would it be?

Probably a 4qt stock pot.  If you were stuck with just that there is very little you can't do! From saute to poach to pasta to braises you would be all set!

What is your favorite thing to do when not in the kitchen?

Ride my bike and travel with my family

Favorite memory in the kitchen?

Being told when I was 23 years old by two Michelin Stared Chef Benoit Guichard that I would some day "make it"



What would you be if you were not a Chef?


An NHL goalie.  HA!
