Project Description

Sariann is a small town New England girl through and through. Raised on a farm in rural Connecticut, in a town where cows far outnumbered people, she was surrounded by the sights, smells, and tastes of agriculture. Convinced she was going to be a large animal veterinarian, Sariann earned her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Vermont. Sariann spent the balance of her career managing a medical practice, and then as the director of operations at a Boston mergers and acquisitions firm. She entered the food world 6 years ago with the publication of her cookbook, A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook, a blog-turned-book by the grace of George R.R. Martin himself. Following on from the success of the cookbook launch, Sariann left the US and began training as a chef in England, where she and her future husband and business partner David crossed paths. Work in Portland, Oregon, and Scotland followed, where she developed her culinary skills, as well as restaurant and business management skills. While living in Scotland, Sariann pursued postgraduate studies in Gastronomy at Queen Margaret University, where her love of historical foods and recipes was affirmed. She enjoys rekindling love for lost foods, digging into the history behind them, and finding a place for them in our varied cultures today. The Broken Tulip serves a tasting menu style dinner Thursday through Saturday, showcasing the best our regional farmers, foragers, and fishermen have to offer. The bar serves up interesting wines, and delicious small plates from 4pm to close.
