KILLINGTON—On Friday, Nov. 13, the Birch Ridge Inn officially announced the appointment of Richard “Reggie” Serafin as executive chef. Serafin will be responsible for managing the inn’s culinary activities, including menu development, staffing, and cuisine preparation.

“We are very excited to have Reggie rejoin our team” said Bill Vines, who with his partner Mary Furlong are innkeepers/owners of Birch Ridge. “Reggie had worked for us as our sous chef for four years from 2000-2004 before moving on to a chef’s position at another establishment. We have stayed very close in the intervening years, with Reggie most recently working for Birch Ridge during the 2010-2011 season with Chef Stephen Byrne. Reggie strengthens the inn’s staff with his culinary experience, combined with his knowledge of Killington and our inn. He will be a great team leader for Birch Ridge’s culinary operations.”

Serafin is a graduate of the New England Culinary Institute (class of ‘98). He lives in Rutland with his wife, Lori, and their two children. When he is not in the kitchen, Serafin is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys foraging for wild mushrooms, deer hunting, and taking a few turns on the slopes at Killington and Pico.
