Gregory Gourdet

Departure, Portland, OR

Yanick Gourdet

Palm Coast, FL

Acclaimed chef and Jean-Georges protégé Gregory Gourdet has made a name for himself with the Asian-inflected fare that makes Departure a dining destination in two cities. For this special Beard House dinner, however, the Top Chef alum is going back to his roots, cooking alongside his mother Yanick and crafting a menu that pays tribute to his Haitian heritage.
