In May 2021, we launched the Beard House Fellows program presented by Capital One, which re-envisions the potential of this historic space into a hub of training and professional development for talented emerging chefs. Each Fellow will have a one-month residence at the Beard House where JBF will provide hard skills training along with the opportunity to develop a meal kit in collaboration with Great Performances that will be available across the country.

Our July Fellow, Theodore Coleman, has curated a custom Beard Box that includes ingredients and instructions to create a delicious dinner for two along with gifts from our partners. Guests who reserve their meal kits will also have the opportunity to “meet” Theodore through a virtual event, where he will demonstrate how to prepare his dish and discuss the inspiration behind his menu. Hue Society Founder, Tahiirah Habibi, will also be on-hand to provide expert wine pairing tips.

Theodore Coleman’s Beard Box will be on sale Monday, July 19 at 9:00 A.M. EST through Wednesday July 21 at 11:59 P.M. ET. 
Meal Kits serve two (2) guests, and will be delivered on July 27.  The virtual event will take place on Wednesday, July 28 at 6:30 P.M. ET.

+ Beard Box is available for nationwide shipping in the continental United States.

+ Please note that due to the nature of this event, we are not able to accommodate dietary restrictions at this stage. We appreciate your understanding and support of this policy.
+ Kits are non-refundable.
