After graduating from SUNY Delhi with a Culinary Arts Management degree and starting her journey cooking in a few restaurants in the Capital Region, Carly was thrilled to join the SK team when the restaurant launched. She has grown her hard-working and talented team and takes great pride in the amazing from-scratch culinary dishes they collectively serve-up. While in school, Carly participated throughout the world in food competitions. This passion to always try new flavors, combined with opportunity to work with Chef Paul, the freedom to explore her knowledge, and the partnership with local farmers produces ever-changing, unique and delicious seasonal menus she loves serving to guests.
