Hailing from Connecticut, Meghan could be found in her home kitchen baking alongside her Mother as early as six years old. In these moments, Meghan’s passion for pastry flourished and she developed a clear vision for her future in the culinary arts.

Silas earned his chops working summers on Long Island. As many bartenders start, he was working in a dive bar. It was here he stumbled across a copy of Harry Craddocks,Savoy Cocktail Book. The book inspired him to take a more professional approach to bartending. Over a few years, he learned craft cocktails working for various programs around the country. It was in Providence he met Matt Jennings and his crew at Farmstead. Once in control of the cocktail program, creativity soared when the chefs at Farmstead challenged Silas to use seasonal ingredients, and unconventional flavors to create drinks. During this time, he focused his skills as a bartender, and expanded his knowledge of spirits and cocktail history. Now, he is a student of the Boston cocktail culture, and very eager learn and mix up some drinks.
