With four James Beard Award nominations for Best Chef: Northeast, three Cochon 555 wins, and a spot on Food & Wine’s 40 Big Food Thinkers 40 and Under list, Jennings is a culinary innovator known for his unexpected uses of traditional northern ingredients (maple syrup glazes a roasted duck; a molasses and cider barbecue sauce makes the perfect accompaniment to grilled chicken wings; carbonara takes on a northern slant with the addition of razor clams).
