A Chicago native, Peter Platt learned to love the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts while attending Williams College in the western part of the range. He studied at Cordon Bleu in London, then returned to work with Great Chefs Lydia Shire and Jasper White at the Parker House, in Boston.
In 1985, he was offered to become the Executive Chef at the new Wheatleigh Inn and was credited with putting it on the Berkshires culinary map .In October of 1992, the Great Chefs television crew was shooting their Great Chefs of the East series for The Discovery Channel, and taped Chef Platt preparing a Pumpkin Soup appetizer. The next day, they went on to film Leslie Miller at the Old Inn on the Green in New Marlborough, Massachusetts.
At the time, Chef Peter Platt commented that “he wanted to create a place where one can come to celebrate romance, conduct business, or focus on a culinary experience”. Ironically, in 2003 Chef Platt and his wife, Meredith Kennard, did exactly that, and purchased the Old Inn on the Green, acting as innkeepers and chef.
It consistently wins top ratings by Zagat and AAA Four Diamond Awards, and Open Table named it among the 10 most romantic restaurants in New England.
