Critically acclaimed chef Ian Boden of the Shack in Staunton has had a difficult time finding a new sous chef. Although it’s been tough, the one tiny upside is that it’s freed up space in his kitchen for a series of visiting chefs with which to collaborate each weekend.
Heritage and Southbound’s Joe Sparatta was Boden’s first guest earlier this fall and now Travis Milton, formerly of Comfort and planning to open his own restaurant, Shovel & Pick, in 2016, is paying a visit on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 11-12.
It's a cooking dream team and reservations go fast at the Shack for these events — Staunton is less than two hours away, so expect a few Richmonders to make the trip. You can call (540) 490-1961 for more details.
