    Recipes for a New Tradition w/ Chef Konrad Meier of Historic Bedford Springs Resort & Spa

    in Food

    When Executive Chef Konrad Meier joined Bedford Springs Resort, located in Bedford, Pennsylvania, he was absolutely enthralled to find that local farms offered some of the best fresh produce he has ever seen, and that includes his native Germany!

    As designer of the resort?s menus for six restaurants, including The Crystal Dining Room and The Frontier Tavern, he has discovered new and exciting ways to offer the seasonal produce, cheeses, and meats of the Cumberland Valley in his menus.

    Offering traditional American cuisine with mid-Atlantic roots, his dishes are artfully prepared with fresh ingredients grown by local purveyors and always provide a pinch of romance, a dash of fun, and mounds of comfort and appeal.

    With a wealth of culinary talent and tons of enthusiasm, Meier has appeared on numerous TV shows, most recently in Baltimore, Washington, DC, and Pittsburgh. He is also passionate about sharing his recipes with others and teaches demonstrations and classes for guests of the resort and members of the Bedford community.

    In its glory days Bedford Springs, played host to U.S. presidents, heads of state and countless celebrities, and was where the first TransAtlantic cable was received by President James Buchanan from Great Britain’s Queen Victoria in 1858. The resort also served as Buchanan’s summer White House. Today, guests will find memorable cuisine and high-tech meeting facilities, a gold medal trout stream, mountain nature trails and Cannondale Bikes to traverse them, an outdoor wedding grotto, restored indoor and new outdoor swimming pools, plus
