Glenn Strickling

The Greens' Executive Chef

Glenn took an interest in cooking at an early age. While other boys and girls his age were running home from school to catch afternoon cartoons, Glenn was home watching The Galloping Gourmet. Inspired by an article in Life magazine, he enrolled in classes at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park. Glenn has worked as a chef at Les Pleiades, a French establishment in Manhattan's Upper East Side before becoming a private chef for a prominent Park Avenue couple.

In 1993, Glenn moved from New York City to the Berkshires in Massachusetts to become chef for The Candlelight Inn in Lenox, then for John Andrews in South Egremont. It was Glenn's enthusiasm for golf that brought him to Copake Country Club and The Greens restaurant where he creates fabulous menus while taking full advantage of local and seasonal produce, meats, cheeses, and spirits.
