Kevin Cottle

Fire at the Ridge at Powder Ridge Mountain Park and Resort, Middlefield, CT

After competing on Hell’s Kitchen, chef Kevin Cottle took on another ambitious venture, purchasing a ski resort and opening the elegant Fire at the Ridge. Now this blazing-hot chef will light up the Beard House, paying homage to his New England roots through a refined expression of Connecticut’s lush summer bounty.
