Dan Smith

John Andrews: A Farmhouse Restaurant, South Egremont, MA

Praised by Food & Wine for his “skillful modern cuisine,” chef Dan Smith is making waves at his Berkshires restaurant, John Andrews, where he and his team spin locally sourced ingredients into tempting American fare that’s dappled with regional Italian details. For this Gaelic May Day–inspired feast, Smith will observe spring's rite of passage through a luscious farmhouse menu.
