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

Wednesday, June 3, 7:00 P.M.
Foraged in Sonoma 
At Sonoma County’s Backyard, husband-and-wife chefs Daniel Kedan and Marianna Gardenhire—who met while working at Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc and Bouchon—cook only with ingredients grown, raised, or line-caught locally. The night’s menu will be a beautiful expression of foraged Northern California cuisine paired with Sonoma County wines.

Thursday, June 4, 7:00 P.M.
Taste of Modern Charleston 
Although it’s located in a restored 19th-century home in historic Upper King, Charleston hot spot Fish serves Lowcountry fare that’s far from traditional. Helmed by Nico Romo, France’s youngest-ever master chef, the kitchen turns out cuisine highlighting Charleston’s local bounty through Gallic techniques and Eastern flavors, for a dining experience unlike anything else in this food-loving city.

Friday, June 5, 7:00 P.M.
Hot Modern Australia 
At New York City’s Flinders Lane, chef Chris Rendell cooks up edgy, bold plates that weave together the culinary threads of Australia’s rich immigrant culture. For this special Beard House dinner, the chef’s modern cuisine will be paired with boutique Australian wines handpicked by partner Chris McPherson, formerly of AvroKO.

Sunday, June 7, 6:00 P.M
