Read about The Bernard's Inn Garden on "Artful Diner" from NJ.com Link to \"Artful Diner\" NJ.com "The Bernards Inn’s garden is part of a growing trend of cooking with locally grown produce. The chefs at the Bernards Inn first planted their garden about a year ago, realizing a long-time professional dream of Chef Heyer’s. He had always sought out local produce; but, motivated by the opportunity to grow the restaurant’s own vegetables and herbs, the garden takes this to a new level.

I take a tremendous amount of pride in who I am and how I live my life.  I call it an umbrella policy of pride if you will.  I look for it in the people I hire and the people I work for.  My staff in the kitchen must take pride in being on time, keeping their work area clean, their uniform clean, their knives sharp, pride in those around them and the property they work for.   I am not perfect nor do I expect anyone in life to be perfect.  But I do expect a very high percentage of consistency in myself and those that I work with to stay under the pride umbrella.

I was able to visit the Chatham Farmers Market this past Saturday morning, with my family. The market allows us to choose the freshest fruits, vegetables and produce, and we build our menus, at home, around what is available each week.

Don't be surprised when you see us at the farmers market in Bernardsville next year.

Life without goals has no purpose.  I often joke with people that if I did not have to work for a paycheck, I would live on a remote stretch of beach and fish and surf the days away.  But in all honesty I would last about a week.  Goals give us purpose, something to strive for.  They keep you up at night planning on how to conquer them and they you get you up in the morning so you can start chasing them.  One of the amazing aspects of life in the kitchen is that there are an infinite number of goals to achieve.  Just as you conquer one another arises and the chall...
