Dan Smith

John Andrews: A Farmhouse Restaurant, South Egremont, MA

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.
