Tom Corbett: Kitchen Manager/Chef
Tom Corbett was born and raised in Vermont, and currently lives in Williamstown, where he is the Food Service Manager and Head Chef at Williamstown High School. Tom has been cooking for over 40 years. He was the head chef at The State House in Montpelier, banquet chef at The Barre Country Club, and ran numerous other kitchens, as well as his own catering company. But it was when he first spent time as a chef at a summer camp that he was able to combine his love of food and children. Since then he has filled his summers spending time with kids and making sure their meals are as good as the rest of their summer. Tom’s kitchen is always the place to be if you want to laugh!
When he isn’t in a kitchen or reading recipes Tom loves to get outside and hike the beautiful trails of Vermont, either on his own or with his grandchildren. Spending time with his family is his favorite thing to do, no matter what they are doing. But if the weather isn’t cooperating and he has some time to himself, then he’s relaxing watching a good Hallmark Channel movie…especially the Christmas ones!
