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

Bay Area Seafood Sophisticate

At his pair of superb San Francisco eateries, chef and co-owner Matthew Dolan combines his classic European technique with Northern California ingredients and sensibilities. For his Beard House reprise, Dolan will delight seafood lovers with a decadent and sustainability-minded feast, proving just how delicious conscious consumption can be.

Thursday, May 5, 7:00 P.M.

Cinco de Mayo

Thanks to the talented Adam Rose, the New York Times has declared that “New Jersey now has a modern Mexican culinary destination that wouldn’t be out of place in Los Angeles or Chicago.” We’ve tapped Rose, whose cooking draws on traditional recipes and indigenous ingredients, to present a spirited Cinco de Mayo feast.

Friday, May 6, 7:00 P.M.

Sip and Savor the Finger Lakes

New York State’s picturesque Finger Lakes region beckons travelers and oenophiles with its extraordinary beauty and award-winning wineries. For this Beard House dinner, a group of local and Big Apple chefs will collaborate on a stunning late-spring menu paired with critically acclaimed wines from Bloomer Creek Vineyard.
