GREENWICH, Conn. -- The James Beard House is bringing some of the Nutmeg State’s leading culinary talents to Manhattan for a regional Farm Table Feast on April 12.
From tender spring lamb to impossibly creamy burrata, leading chefs know that fresh local ingredients are the key to memorable meals.

The evening’s inspired local menu, spotlighting regionally raised ingredients, features local treasures including briny Noank Oysters and succulent Lobster plucked from the Long Island Sound; handmade Bleu Cheese from Bantam’s Arethusa Farm, and heritage-breed duck from New Hartford’s MarWin Farm.
