Todd Villani

Terre à Terre, Carlstadt, NJ

Marc Swierkowski

Ella’s Wood Burning Oven Restaurant, Wareham, MA

Todd Villani has made his name as one of the Garden State’s biggest locavores, so it’s no surprise that he’s linking up with fellow advocate and friend Marc Swierkowski for an end-of-summer supper at the Beard House. This farm-to-table feast will be packed with peak produce, rustic flavors, and European flair.
