Ian Boden to Cook at James Beard House

by Charlottesville29


Our area’s dining continues to rack up the accolades.  Ian Boden has joined the list of area chefs to be invited to cook at the James Beard House, a much-deserved honor.  He will appear on February 2, 2015, for an evening titled “The Mighty Virginia Shack”, after his Staunton restaurant.  His menu, below, looks like it might be worth traveling all the way to New York.  Our favorite part may be that all of the wine and cider pairings come from Virginia.  Bravo Ian!
