Class of 2007 Alumni Spotlight
– Posted Fall 2017
An Easy-Bake Oven and the rise of the Food Network sparked a career in the culinary industry for Christine Langelier. She is currently the General Manager of Blue Hills at Stone Barns located in Pocantico Hills, New York. Langelier credits BVT’s full-service Three Seasons Restaurant for providing her with her first real-life experiences in both the back-of-house and front-of-house which are duties that she now completes daily.
In May, Blue Hills at Stone Barns was awarded the prestigious James Beard Award for Outstanding Service. Langelier first attended the James Beard Awards, often referred to as the Academy Awards of the food and beverage industry, as a volunteer while studying at the Culinary Institute of America. The experience of being on the stage receiving an award rather than behind the stage was an incredible moment for Langelier.
“As the General Manager, I’ve helped train and mentor the staff that contributed in this year’s award, so this win meant more to me personally,” said Langelier. “Having my team able to stand beside me to accept one of the industry’s highest awards was such positive affirmation for the hard work we all put into the restaurant.”
