Did you hear? Our 20th Anniversary "Have a Seat" Gala on 11/11/11 will feature celebrity chef Lydia Shire! Lydia is known for her creative genius, which makes her a perfect match for AFH.
Chef Shire was raised by artist parents in Brookline, Mass. After attending London’s Cordon Bleu Cooking School she returned to Massachusetts to continue her cooking career. She has received many accolades so far in her career including “America’s Best Chef – Northeast” in 1992 and “One of America’s Top Five Chefs” in 1996, both awarded by the James Beard Foundation.
Currently Chef Shire is the Culinary Director of Towne Stove and Spirits and the chef at Scampo, which was recognized by Esquire magazine as one of the “Best New Restaurants” in America in 2008. Her dishes are known as “unrestrained” and “inspired.”
Similar to the AFH studios, Chef Shire’s kitchens have taught many of our finest local talent. We are honored to have chef Lydia Shire as a part of our 20th Anniversary Gala Have a Seat.
