An intimate summer POp-up on flagstaff mountain
Jacqueline Malcom-Peck, founder of Summer in Greystone, is a recent graduate of Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration (Class of 2019). She has returned to Colorado to focus on food and beverage in her childhood home, Greystone Castle.
Jacqueline’s first memorable interaction with food was planting raspberry bushes with her mother and feeling the connection between the nature and the plant source.
Jacqueline was home-schooled in Boulder throughout her childhood along with her older twin sisters. Her parents are small business owners and instilled a love of learning and an entrepreneurial spirit. She studied abroad in Ireland at the Ballymaloe Cookery School where she worked first hand with small business owners, artisan craftsmen, and mastered forgotten practices.
During her sophomore year at Pepperdine University, she studied abroad again at the Business School at the University of Edinburgh during the world-renowned art festival. The experiences abroad have allowed her to have more compassion and respect for the individuals around her. After her time in Scotland she took a gap year in order to pursue a writing project. Her mother’s memoir will be released next month with WestBow Press. Jacqueline also had the opportunity to work at Eleven Madison Park as a prep cook and a pastry cook. She feels most alive living in the moment and overcoming challenges.
