Camille was raised in Brooklyn, New York and taught from an early age the passion of preparing and eating good food. Moving from New York to Michigan, working as a Dental Hygienist and raising two sons, she returned to school to pursue her passion and prepare for a second career. She completed programs in both Culinary Arts and Hotel and Restaurant Management, graduating with high honors and the praise of many of her instructors. Entrees and Pastries are her specialty, as many of the Bed & Breakfasts guests will attest.
Joe was originally trained as a cook, working in New York with a caterer who specialized in event planning and large parties. He veered from this course and entered college, earning a doctorate in Psychology. After raising his sons and closing his practice in Michigan, he came to North Carolina with the intent of opening a Bed & Breakfast; as he says: “Cooking is only fun when you have someone to cook for.” Today he is a professor at Mount Olive College and works with Camille at the Inn. His specialties include bread making and food presentation.
