Meet the New Faces of Threefold Café

Anne-Lise Thornton, Manager
Charlie Miller, Chef

After earning her masters degree in International Hospitality Management at the University of La Rochelle in France, Anne-Lise Thornton managed restaurants and convention centers in luxury hotels in China, London and South Africa. After working in London for four years, she took a leave of absence to participate in the foundation year course in anthroposophy at Emerson College, followed by a year working on her family’s biodynamic farm in southern France. Anne-Lise came to the Threefold community in late 2012 with her husband, Rev. Hugh Thornton, a priest at the local Christian Community church.

A recent graduate of the Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Arts in Boulder, Colorado, Charlie Miller has sixteen years’ experience in the restaurant business, including three years as chef and workshop facilitator at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. At Omega, the country’s largest vegetarian kitchen, Charlie orchestrated and executed seasonal, locally sourced cuisine for 200 to 1,200 guests. A menu consultant for naturopathic doctors, Charlie has prepared complementary menus that offer food as medicine. He also conducted the 2011 Northeast Permaculture Convergence of 300 guests using produce, dairy and meats sourced from fourteen local farmers.

Speaking of her aspirations for Threefold Café, Anne-Lise says, “A restaurant is a gathering place of the heart. So much unfolds at the table, sharing a meal and each other’s company. I find hospitality to be a joyful work.”

Charlie is thrilled to return to the Hudson Valley with his wife Sarah and daughter Poppy Elloise, and to be a part of the Threefold community. He looks forward to offering seasonal vittles and libations from the valley's amazing bounty, while building community with local farmers and purveyors. With Anne-Lise, he hopes to make the café a place for all to enjoy and feel as if they were right at home.
