Christian Kruse

Basin Harbor Club - Vergennes, VT

Perched on the shores of Lake Champlain, the historic Basin Harbor Club beckons guests with its spectacular surroundings and singular cuisine—much of which comes directly from the resort’s bountiful on-site farm. Join us in sampling the rich flavors of Vermont’s terroir when chef Christian Kruse takes a road trip to the Beard House.
