After he was two years invested in becoming a mechanical engineer at Penn State, Brad Farmerie took a two year hiatus to explore the cuisines and wines of Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and the Antipodes. One year turned to seven, and Farmerie's culinary wanderings turned serious when he settled in the UK in 1996, earning a "Grand Diplome" at the Le Cordon Bleu, then rounded out his education and technique at acclaimed restaurants: "Coast," "Chez Nico," and "Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons." Most influential to his own style was his experience working with Peter Gordon at the "Sugar Club" in 1996, and in 2001, assisting Gordon and Anna Hansen in the opening of the critically-acclaimed "The Providores and Tapa Room."

Moving back to the states in 2003, he opened "PUBLIC," (NYC) where his culinary magpie method takes cues from broad source material, looking to places visited for inspiration. In the fall of 2008, he extended his culinary reach, when "Double Crown" and "Madam Geneva" were launched, with Farmerie in place as executive chef.

Michelin Star-winning Farmerie has been seen on Food Network's "Iron Chef America," (where he was victorious over Iron Chef Cat Cora), and "The Next Iron Chef;" Cooking Channel, "Martha Stewart Living," "The Today Show," and others.
