Patrick O’Connell, Chef/Proprietor, The Inn at Little Washington
February 15-21, 2016

Self-taught Chef Patrick O’Connell pioneered refined, regional cuisine in the countryside of Virginia, first aligning with local farmers and artisanal producers nearly four decades ago when nothing but milk was delivered to the tiny town of “Little” Washington. He opened The Inn at Little Washington in a former garage in 1978 and quickly evolved it into an international culinary shrine – as well as an inspirational American success story. Sometimes referred to as “the Pope of American Cuisine,” O’Connell’s goal is to restore and heal people through preparation and presentation of his food. His menu constantly changes along with the seasons and his many moods. In 2015, Forbes Travel Guideawarded The Inn at Little Washington’s restaurant Five Stars for the 24th year in a row.
