Cape Cod Dance Weekend
We are still working out the details, so stay tuned…
Food for the weekend will be lovingly prepared by Sarah Pilzer and Gillian Stewart, both veterans of the Pinewoods Camp kitchen and members of the legendary kitchen staff at Youth Dance Weekend. With Sarah and Gillian in the kitchen we can guarantee you’ll eat better here than just about anywhere else.
Drawing on their combined experience and culinary skills Sarah and Gillian will prepare a menu of delicious, hearty meals to fuel your dancing, including carnivorous and vegetarian options, made from wholesome ingredients and featuring local produce when possible. Expect homemade chili and soups, scrumptious salads and roasted veggies, fresh baked breads, and delicious desserts. Food will be provided from Friday evening through Sunday brunch. Sarah and Gillian are adept at meeting a range of dietary needs, so please let us know if you have allergies or sensitivities so we can accommodate them.
Sarah believes food equals love and she has a lot of love for the dance community! There’s nothing more gratifying to Sarah than seeing the smiles on a herd of hungry folks as they sit down to a table spread with steaming dishes of delicious food. That is why she has dedicated so much of her time to learning how to cook for large groups of people, especially her dance friends. Starting as a teenager in the Pinewoods kitchen, Sarah was routinely making mashed potatoes for 150+ long before figuring out how to make a meal in her own home. In fact, she still has trouble scaling down recipes and often ends up with a freezer full of leftovers (not really a bad problem to have!) After first hearing their dulcet tones while in the kitchen at YDW 2008, Sarah is excited to be working again with Elixir on their own dance weekend and can’t wait to help feed everyone!
Gillian has been working in the kitchen at Pinewoods since 2004, including several seasons as head chef. She is an active Morris, longsword, contra, and English dancer, and is a member of the renowned Orion Longsword team. Gillian currently lives in the Boston area and works in a pie shop. She doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up.
