Fun Food Events

As an active member of the James Beard Foundation, Alberg curates team dinners every year at the James Beard House when he invites a group of like-minded Berkshire chefs to collaborate and present the multifaceted culinary artisanship of the region. He participated in the James Beard Foundation’s TasteAmerica Boston event in 2013, and in 2014, Alberg presented a solo dinner at the James Beard Foundation featuring a menu inspired by favorite foods he has experienced at top restaurants throughout the country. This was his eleventh appearance a the Beard House.

Chef Alberg has been the selected chef for Outstanding in the Field, held at iconic farm locations in the Berkshires. This nationally recognized event presents an opportunity for the Berkshires to make known its historical roots in agriculture and to promote the food culture of the region, especially the strong ties between farmers and chefs and the collaborative practice of farm-to-table values in the Berkshires. Alberg was the presenting chef at the first Outstanding in the Field Dinner in the Berkshires at Indian Line Farm, the first CSA in North America, and the 2013 Outstanding Dinner at Hancock Shaker Village, the living history museum that brings the Shaker story to life. In 2014, Alberg presented the largest Outstanding in the Field Dinner in the Berkshires at Lila’s Farm in Great Barrington, Mass. and will do it again in September 2015.

Chef Alberg took home the top prize and trophy at American Lamb Board’s third annual Boston Lamb Jam for Best Overall Dish, as well as winning Best Shoulder Dish in 2012.
