Executive Pastry Chef Chris Wilson

A Pennsylvania native, Chef Wilson joined the Twin Farms team as Executive Pastry Chef in 2004. Chris’s experience in both sweet and savory cooking spans both coasts and several esteemed culinary establishments.

Most recently, Chef Wilson was the Exec. Pastry Chef of the Inn at Little Washington; an intimate 20-room inn owned by Chef Patrick O’Connell, and one of only a few in the country to have held double Mobil 5-Stars. Chef Wilson has also held the post of Executive Pastry Chef at Brix Restaurant, in Yountville, CA, in an award winning, all-encompassing locally focused scratch kitchen.

Prior to Napa Valley, he was Pastry Chef Instructor at the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco. It was in California where he honed his artisan bread baking techniques working with renowned artisan bakers Jan Schatt, Craig Ponsford and Michael Kalanty. He had also spent years prior honing his plating, sugar and chocolate skills, winning several awards and accolades.

Culinary Team

Director of Food and Beverage, Christina Wernikowski, has always had a great love for food. Before moving to Montana, she spent a year in Southwest France, where she cooked plant-based food for a small boutique property in the Cahors wine region.

Christina began working at The Ranch at Rock Creek in 2012, where she focused on locally sourcing artisan crafts and sundries in our Mercantile. She soon moved into the role of Events Manager, where she and Executive Chef Josh Drage collaborated on creative culinary programming during weekly Ranch happenings and special events.

Her philosophy to focus on Montana craftspeople and purveyors has worked seamlessly with Chef Drage’s culinary philosophy of supporting local farmers, foragers and ranchers to get the best possible product Montana has to offer.
