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

Grand Wine, Grand Feast
From manning the stoves at the acclaimed Ryland Inn to a gig overseeing JBF Award winner Jonathan Waxman’s growing restaurant empire, chef Anthony Bucco has serious kitchen cred. Now at the helm of Restaurant Latour at the elegant Crystal Springs Resort, he creates sumptuous menus that stand up to the resort’s unparalleled 135,000-bottle wine cellar.

Thursday, September 24, 7:00 P.M. 
Boulder Bounty
After reigning supreme on Top Chef Season 5, Hosea Rosenberg made an indelible mark on Boulder’s food scene with his Blackbelly concept. Join us as he brings facets of his farm, restaurant, marketplace, and butcher shop to the Beard House for a dining experience from the source to the plate.

Friday, September 25, 7:00 P.M.
Inventive Italian
When Giovanni Rocchio left his career in New York City and returned to his native Florida, Fort Lauderdale gained a seasoned chef with stints at Del Posto, Babbo, and other Italian gems under his apron strings. At Valentino Cucina Italiana, he presents a modern spin on Italian cuisine that’s wholly his own.
