Vicky Mullaney grew up in the countryside of Virginia where eating farm fresh foods, home cooked family meals, and wild game was a way of life. Having five children and three grandchildren, she has always believed that family meals should be an integral part of raising strong children.
Upon moving with her family to Black Pearl Farms on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and taking on the responsibilities of managing the lodge, she decided her love of the culinary arts would enhance the guest experience. Authors, artists, congressmen, generals, ambassadors, judges, industry leaders, and exceptional people from many walks of life rave about her cooking. During the season her kitchen is alive with activity, enhanced by laughter and stories told by her guests from all over the world.
