Chef Bard at the Beard House

Today’s Press Herald includes a report on the dinner chef Shannon Bard prepared last night at the Beard House.

An hour and a half before her sold-out “Mexico meets Maine” dinner on Monday night, the ebullient chef, in the kitchen since 8 a.m., admitted she had been too wrapped up in preparation to fully take in her surroundings – the very same kitchen where not only the great Beard himself had cooked, but also nearly every luminary in the culinary world.
