About Chef Emery. Emery Gray, the Farm to Table Manager at Billings Farm & Museum, had a passion for food at a very young age. Seeing the way that people connected through the growing, sharing, and cooking of food inspired her to make a career in the kitchen. She attended The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, earning her Associates Degree in Baking and Pastry Arts. Traveling the world has translated her passion into a deep appreciation for sustainability of local food systems.
