Tomas Rahal’s Tribute to Richard Bean

by Charlottesville29

Tomas Rahal, of MAS Tapas, is among the many chefs who have created a tribute dish to honor Double H Farm’s Richard Bean, the local food giant who passed away late last year. Rahal’s dish is Shenandoah rabbit and duck liver terrine. A complete list of the chefs and their dishes is here.  Rahal’s words:

“Richard was the purest form of ‘terroir’ we have in Central Virginia. Sweet and pugnacious, he and Jean brought so much energy to the local food scene as growers, mentors, and friends. It was a unique honor to have met him, worked with him, known him, fed him. He cannot be replaced.”
