Fergus High, Lewistown, Montana

After leaving South Dakota, our road took us North West into the Big Sky state of Montana. We stayed in Lewistown, right about in the middle of the state. While there, Chef Marcus made the local paper…There’s more to the article than this but it is basically as follows…

Traveling Chef Visits Local Culinary Program

Chef Marcus Hamblett, chef-instructor of the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont, spent Tuesday morning with Karen Durbin and her culinary classes at Fergus High School. The chef, with the student’s assistance, prepared a rich and delicious dish of Chicken Piccata and discussed many aspects of the culinary field including it‘s importance in an agricultural community such as this. Chef Marcus Hamblett, his wife Erika and Chase, their 5-year old son (and chef-in-training), have set out on an unforgettable culinary trip with a mission to cook in all 50 states.

Chef Marcus, a graduate of New England Culinary Institute (NECI) and former Alumni Association President, has been a chef instructor at NECI since 2003. He and his family recently decided to pack up their belongings and set out on the journey of a lifetime in an effort to get “behind the line” in every state.

They set off on Saturday, July 7th in their truck and 26-foot trailer in tow for a year long odyssey that most people only dream about. During their time out on the road they will be visiting NECI alumni, performing demos at tech centers and upscale food markets and staging in various restaurants.
