About the Chef

Sarah Mittelstadt is the Chef and Kitchen Manager at Farm Table Foundation, a non-profit restaurant that seeks to grow local food culture out of Amery, WI. Sarah studied Food Systems at the University of Minnesota, but fell in love with feeding people as she learned to sling bison burgers and Thai curry from the Chef Shack food truck in Minneapolis, MN. For her, the food at Farm Table restaurant brings full circle the relationship between farmers and the land that she studied in school and the good and nourishing food she learned to surround herself with. In 2018, Sarah helped to increase Farm Table’s local food spending to 84% within 60 miles of the restaurant. She is absolutely committed to a homesteaders kitchen model that creatively preserves and utilizes the fruits, vegetables, grains and animals from around us throughout the year. She also places great importance on food that is embedded with cultural tradition and importance which she immerses herself in through travel (i.e. Thailand, Norway, Ireland, etc.). When she’s not in the kitchen, Sarah loves to walk in the woods, spend time with her family, her puppy, Cashew and have food experiences in the Twin Cities! A quote that encapsulates a lot of her feelings about food is by Virginia Woolf: “one cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
