Small Towns, Big Flavors

Praised by Esquire as an “incredible restaurant in the middle of nowhere that nobody knows about,” the 16-seat Shack spotlights the immense talents of chef Ian Boden, who now returns to the Beard House with his hand-picked group of like-minded Southern chefs.

Beltane in the Berkshires

Spinning locally sourced ingredients into tantalizing fare 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 a luscious, locavore feast.
