As a sommelier, it will likely come as no surprise that wine dinners are one of my favorite parts of the job. Wine dinners are such an amazing way to experience, enjoy and learn more about wine and food, all within the company of enthusiastic wine drinkers, and more often than not, foodies! The recent Girardin Burgundy Wine Dinner was no exception—it was an intimate and friendly evening that was enjoyed by all.

In a mere 4 days, two of the rooms on the third floor at the Bernards Inn were striped, painted, wallpapered, carpeted and overnight given a new personality. As the designer for the Bernards Inn, I have named the third floor rooms Metro 14 and Metro 15. When I was selected by the Bernards Inn to reinvent and redesign the guest rooms at the Inn, I developed an intriguing vision for the rooms.

  Chef Heyer In the Kitchen at the James Beard House. What an honor it was to be back in the kitchen of The James beard House last week! I have had the pleasure of cooking at The House on three other occasions, but this experience was especially meaningful to me. Having been born and raised in New Jersey and having traveled and lived in many other parts of this country, I can honestly say that I would not choose to live anywhere else. To be able to cook a dinner that celebrates so many of the wonderful foods that this state has to offer and host it in a place that means so much to...
