Here’s a taste of what’s on tap today at the Beard House.
Tavern Supper, 7:00 P.M.
Fox Heritage Farms and Heritage Tavern, Madison, WI
Dan Fox is known for his locavore ethos, which ranges from the lauded fare at his Madison hot spot to the heritage-breed pigs he raises on his farm. But don’t expect Fox to fall back on the bounty of his restaurant's midwestern location. “Looking closely at what inspires Dan, his cooking isn't rustic American farmhouse cooking. It's loaded with sophisticated techniques and bursts of Asian and far-flung ingredients that deliver confident notes of flavor, texture, and umami,” explains Izabela Wojcik, JBF director of house programming. Fox’s Beard House dinner offers a late-winter feast full of vibrant dishes like Bluefin Tuna with Crispy Pork Jowl, Foie Gras, and Pineapple–Mango Compote and Peanut Oil–Fried Whitefish with Pickled Papaya, Baby Bok Choy, Bacon-Fried Beech Mushrooms, Sticky Rice, and Coconut–Lobster Red Curry Sauce guaranteed to wake up diners' palates and shake them out of their winter doldrums.
