About Chef Patty Roche
A self-described “butcher’s daughter,” Patty credits her father for her love of food, affection for liverwursts, commitment to giving back and enthusiasm for having fun. Growing up, the family business was lovingly referred to as “Beef House,” which is where she learned how to size a side of beef and the right way to treat customers. Known for her entertaining demeanor and fun-loving attitude, Patty brought more than 25 years of restaurant and catering experience with her when she joined the Stonewall Kitchen family. She was the Cooking School’s first manager and over the years has taught classes, been involved in visual merchandising and food styling and worked in our test kitchen and Café. She also completed an intensive culinary program at Atlantic Culinary Academy in Dover, New Hampshire. Patty’s latest adventure finds her as the chef and manager of the freshly renovated and historic Pickering House Inn, in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.
