DANE HUCKELBRIDGE: BOURBON—A HISTORY AND TASTING OF THE AMERICAN SPIRIT
Few commodities figure as prominently in the story of the nation as bourbon. Columbus discovered its primary ingredient, and its recipe was perfected on the Western frontier. Congress declared it to be a “distinctive product of the United States.” First brewed by backwoods Appalachian pioneers, bourbon is a modern multibillion dollar international industry. Join author Dane Huckelbridge for a talk and tasting of this all-American spirit on the publishing date of Bourbon: A History of the American Spirit (William Morrow; April 1, 2014).

Conversations with Chevaliers | ERIC RIPERT AND ADAM GOPNIK
Le Bernardin is consistently named the best restaurant in New York. There’s a reason for that – Eric Ripert. Acclaimed one of the greatest chefs in the world, the French-born Ripert says “food is about memories, feelings, emotions.” It’s that artistic sensitivity that makes his cooking so memorable. And it’s one of the reasons he is a Chevalier, a winner of the prestigious French Legion of Honor, Order of Arts and Letters award, granted to distinguished artists and cultural leaders around the world.As part of our series of Conversations with Chevaliers, co-presented with the French Consulate, Monk talks with Adam Gopnik, himself a Chevalier, about his approach to cooking, his influences and the awards and prizes that Le Bernardin wins year after year.

FOOD AND ARCHITECTURE
Following great success with the Fatty Crab restaurant empire, Zak Pelaccio opened Fish & Game, a new restaurant in Hudson, New York, with the help of architect Michael Davis. Using period-sensitive techniques, a former 19th-century blacksmith cottage and carriage house structure underwent an adaptive reuse transformation under Davis’s expert guidance. Plenty of before-and-after photos and lively storytelling from the chef and architect illustrate the collaborative concept of “cooking a restaurant through architecture.”
