The Hickories, Ridgefield, CT
HOST FARMER: Dina Brewster, The Hickories
GUEST CHEF: Bill Taibe, LeFarm, Westport & The Whelk, Westport
TIME: 3 PM
Chef Bill Taibe is working hard and having fun. This is truly what a chef’s life should be. One restaurant inspired by the land (LeFarm), one inspired by the sea (The Whelk) and a pop up restaurant (Souterrain) inspired by whatever the hell he feels like. All this freedom and creativity has paid off as Chef Bill was recently named a James Beard award Best Chef Northeast semi-finalist. The Hickories Farm was recommended to us by an OITF regular. Farmer Dina Brewster raises vegetables, chickens, goats, pigs and sheep. We are looking forward to taking a good look around Dina’s farm and setting the table.
