Here’s a taste of what’s on tap today at the Beard House.
Beltane in the Berkshires, 7:00 P.M.
Dan Smith, John Andrews: A Farmhouse Restaurant, South Egremont, MA
Spinning locally sourced ingredients into tantalizing plates at his Berkshire farmhouse restaurant since 1990, chef Dan Smith practiced a farm-to-table ethos long before it emerged as a national trend. For his Gaelic May Day–inspired Beard House dinner, Smith will observe spring’s rite of passage with luscious, locavore fare such as Gnocchi Fritti with Lila’s Mountain Lamb Pancetta and Berle Farm Aged Berleberg; Shaved John Andrews Garden Sunchokes with Celery, Meat Market Cured Blue Hill Farm Bacon, Hazelnuts, Berkshire Blue Cheese, Frisée, and Berkshire Wildflower Honey–Champagne Vinaigrette; and Berle Farm Cornmeal Budino with Taft Farm Rhubarb Compote and Mint Gelato.
