Audubon Vermont, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to protect birds, wildlife and their habitat through engaging people of all ages in education, conservation, stewardship and action, is pleased to welcome Zachary Minot, culinary consultant and a partner at the culinary website CookingDistrict.com to their board of directors.
"Audubon Vermont is excited to have Zach join the board of directors, Audubon has had an active conservation and education presence in Huntington for fifty years and having Zach, one of our Audubon Center neighbors, on the board will strengthen our ties to the community and add to our already talented and committed board," stated Jim Shallow, Director of Conservation & Policy, at Audubon Vermont.
"Having lived next door to the Green Mountain Audubon Center for a few years now, I couldn't be more excited to become involved and help the organization connect people to nature," stated Zach Minot..
Zach Minot grew up along the east coast, living in Florida, Maine, New Jersey, Connecticut, and New York before finally arriving in Vermont for good in 2010. Currently, he is a culinary consultant and a partner at the culinary website CookingDistrict.com. Zach graduated from The New England Culinary Institute with an Associate's Degree in Culinary Arts and from The University of Vermont with a Bachelor's Degree in Film and Television, a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science, and a minor in Japanese. Zach has cooked for numerous high-end restaurants including New York City's Gramercy Tavern, and locally at The Kitchen Table Bistro and the Inn at Shelburne Farms. He has worked on the set of acclaimed Food Network's Good Eats with Alton Brown and has been hands-on with culinary media since 2005.
When not living and working in his culinary world, Zach has a passion for many things that connect him to Vermont and nature. He's always had a strong passion for the outdoors and commitment to conservation. With a rich birding history in his family, he became interested in Audubon Vermont after moving next door to GMAC and becoming aware of the great variety of birds right in his backyard. Zach enjoys photography, fixing old cars, working on his land and cutting firewood. And of course, there's lots of cooking for friends and family.
