Meet the Chef

Imagine, outside your dining room window, layer upon layer of mountains fading into a haze of evening light. From the hearth of the great fireplace, a blaze of color rivaled only by the fiestaware that sets the table. A glass of wine, some crusty bread, and some of the best food that dining in the Berkshires has to offer.
