Meet the Chefs


Hilary Kemmling

A Pacific Northwest resident for over 30 years, Hilary is passionate about our regional culture and cuisine. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, she strives to bring a love of food and cooking to all she does. After a life-changing trip to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, Hilary brought home a new-found passion for slowfood cuisine (fresh, from scratch, and locally sourced) and the concept for The Schoolhaus Brewhaus was born. With a love for food combined with a love for the customer, Hilary is often found floating into the kitchen to cook one minute and then serving up drinks in the bar the next. Hilary’s never one to sit still; keep an eye out for her next project, Campus Brewing.
