About the Chefs:
Chef Robbie Jester graduated with high honors from the Culinary Institute of America, quickly making his mark at the DuPont Country Club and Hotel DuPont, a considerable accomplishment for a chef in his young twenties. He currently divides his time as Chef de Cuisine, Toscana Kitchen And Bar in Wilmington, Delaware, and as Executive Chef, Harbor House Restaurant in Chestertown, Maryland. Jester’s talents have not gone unnoticed; he was one of a handful of chefs chosen to cook for Governor O’Malley’s 2009 Buy Local Challenge, and at Chefs by the Bay in 2010. He is the Head Chef for Farm Dinners on the Shore, and hand picks a team of select Chefs for each event.
Chef Jester will be joined by Chef Kevin Frederick, formerly Executive Chef at Annapolis' Maryland Inn, and Chef Rob Parker who brings the expertise of a career that runs the gamut from Philadelphia’s Striped Bass to the DuPont Country Club. He is currently a Culinary Instructor and a regular demonstrator at Celebrity Kitchens in Wilmington. This will be his second appearance at Farm Dinners on the Shore.
About the Farms:

Lockbriar Farm is a family-run business, owned and operated by Wayne and Marcella Lockwood along with their children Jacqueline (age 13) and James (age 9). The original farm, located in rural Cecil County, Maryland, was developed on land owned by the Frazier family dating back to the 1800s.They have been growing fruits and vegetables since 1989. Lockbriar Farms started out growing strawberries, later adding raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, gooseberries, currants, and elderberries plus a full line of vegetables including sugar corn, cantaloupes, watermelons, and tomatoes–including High Tunnel/early tomatoes. With the move to Kent County came peaches, apples, plums, apricots and sweet cherries, and added their famous "U-Pick": peaches, blueberries, apples, pumpkins, white peaches, nectarines, apricots, pluots and sweet cherries. Lockbriar Farms strives to grow the best quality fruits and vegetables possible, and are committed to a cleaner, healthier environment for our family, farm, and community.
