Druker will give welcoming remarks.

“If you have an appetite for culinary adventure, you’ll devour the feisty and fun memoir by James Beard award-winning chef and philanthropist Barbara Lynch.”

As Chef/Owner of the Boston-based Barbara Lynch Collective, Barbara Lynch oversees seven celebrated culinary concepts, including No. 9 Park, B&G Oysters, The Butcher Shop, Stir, Drink, Sportello, and Menton. Her cookbook, Stir: Mixing It Up in The Italian Tradition, received the prestigious Gourmand Award for Best Chef Cookbook, and she shares her life story through her memoir, Out of Line: A Life of Playing with Fire, released April 11, 2017.

Barbara is the only female American Grand Chef Relais & Châteaux, and has earned two James Beard Foundation Awards (Best Chef: Northeast and Outstanding Restaurateur) as well as an Amelia Earhart Award for her success in a male-dominated field. In 2017, Barbara was named to the TIME 100, TIME Magazine’s annual list of the world’s most powerful people.
