wilks & colleen medley.

medley is owned and operated by chefs wilks and colleen medley. The Chef couple has worked under some of the greatest chefs in D.C. and L.A. honing their skills and unique style, influenced by locales both far and near. Their culinary journey began with Wilks attending the Culinary Institute of America in New York and Colleen studying at Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island. In 2015, after a decade of city-living, the couple moved to pursue their passions in a community they both love: Taos, New Mexico.
