We had a wonderful evening enjoying some A.S. Kiken (literally as* kicking) wines from Reverie Winery at our recent wine dinner. Starting the evening with the Reverie Roussanne 2010 introduced our guests to a varietal they may not have been familiar with. This Roussanne was fresh, vibrant, aromatic and full of fresh fruit flavors. A great way to wake up the taste buds! The Roussanne grape is indigenous to Southern France and is one of the whites that is used for blending into the Chateauneuf du Papes. We enjoyed an interesting red named A. S. Kiken nicknamed for the son, Andrew. S. Kiken, ha...

Lord Stirling Stables As the warm weather continues and the days get longer, I invite you to escape into the sunshine. There is so much beauty to enjoy outdoors! Notice the spring foliage in your own neighborhood--the peaking blooms, crisp air, and flowering branches. If you haven’t yet discovered Leonard J. Buck Gardens in Far Hills, I strongly recommend a visit. Enjoy their “Woodland Walks” through the celebrated gardens, including one of the premier rock gardens in the Eastern United States. Located just minutes from The Bernards Inn in Far Hills, tours begin at 2 p.m. and admission is $...

Bernards Inn Garden Ready for Planting Spring in New Jersey is an amazing time.

One of the great things about being a chef and living in New Jersey is enjoying the four seasons. I love the fact that we can experience all of them and each one is so very different. It was disappointing to have such a mild winter, as I love to spend time with my wife and kids in the mountains snowboarding. But as each day gets a little longer and a little warmer, my thoughts turn...

Chilled English Pea SoupA Recipe from The Bernards Inn This is an amazingly easy spring soup to prepare. One of the beauties of the soup is that by using frozen peas it helps cool the soup down quickly. Frozen peas are also harvested at their peak insuring a sweet pea, not a starchy one. The mint enhances the flavors we crave as the days become longer and warmer. The soup can also be garnished with chilled shrimp or lobster or sliced garden radish. Enjoy! 1 Medium Onion, Thinly Sliced 1 Leek, White Portion Only, Thinly Sliced 1 Garlic Clove, Thinly Sliced 1 Sprig of Thyme 1 Bay Leaf 1 TBSP...
