Reel Food: The Chefs of Down Home to Downtown



October 22, 2009


Last night's Beard House event featured Josh Silvers and Jeff Mall, who prepared a dinner to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Rodney Strong Vineyards and the release of the cookbook Down Home to Downtown, which celebrates the Sonoma chefs' distinct approaches to food. In the video below, the guys discuss what cooking at the Beard House means to chefs, as well as the enduring mark that James Beard left on American cuisine. It's a sentiment that we often hear from chefs, and we're glad we can share this particular praise with our readers.
