If you haven’t met or come across Brian Alberg, the omnipresent chef with a focus on local at The Red Lion Inn, you’ve been missing out on a Berkshire food crusader. A staunch supporter of regional, seasonal cuisine in the Berkshires and Hudson Valley, he’s doing a remarkable job making an impact on the food culture of our community. Brian grew up in the Hudson Valley, was schooled at the Culinary Institute of America and now leads a team at The Red Lion Inn. Locally grown produce and whole animals are honored in Brian’s kitchen, where he crafts inspiring dishes that have diners appreciate the terroir of this extraordinary farm community.
Food.Curated., directed and produced by Liza de Guia, founder and chief storyteller and three-time James Beard Award nominee, visited with Berkshire Farm & Table back in May and produced a terrific story about Brian, his work in the Berkshires and this beautiful place where chefs come to settle in, connect back to the land and cultivate relationships with food, farmers and fellow chefs who are doing the same thing.
