Here's what's coming up at the James Beard House and around the country:

Monday, April 27, 7:00 P.M.
Dynamic Duo 
At his storied Pig & Prince, Michael Carrino embodies the farm-to-table movement by curing his own meats, assisting at a nearby greenhouse, and working with local livestock breeders to thoughtfully source every element on his menu. Now the chef-on-the-rise will team up with rocker-turned-winemaker Maynard James Keenan, who applies the same philosophy to his craft, for a stellar representation of American terroir.

Tuesday, April 28. 7:00 P.M.
Beltane in the Berkshires 
Praised by Food & Wine for his “skillful modern cuisine,” chef Dan Smith is making waves at his Berkshires restaurant, John Andrews, where he and his team spin locally sourced ingredients into tempting American fare that’s dappled with regional Italian details. For this Gaelic May Day–inspired feast, Smith will observe spring's rite of passage through a luscious farmhouse menu.

Gulf to Gotham 
An alum of groundbreaking Southern restaurants like Emeril’s, Herbsaint, and Cochon, chef Bill Briand has created a mecca for seasonally inspired Gulf seafood cuisine at Fisher’s at Orange Beach Marina. The stunning beachfront destination serves impeccable, unpretentious cuisine inspired by local ingredients and the chef’s Louisiana roots.

Provocatively Elegant 
Though Cédric Vongerichten has a last name that garners him instant celebrity, this young, worldly chef earned his stripes the hard way and now helms the kitchen at the iconic Perry St, part of Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s celebrated portfolio of restaurants. Join us for a taste of the father-and-son duo’s singular, elegant cuisine infused with French and Asian influences.
