Exclusive Beard Box gifts

As of 2021, Capital One has sponsored the Beard House Fellows, a program  that has transformed the historic James Beard House into a hub of professional training for talented emerging chefs. Capital One wants to encourage the next generation of culinary talent by helping give them the financial skills and tools they need to succeed. Culminating the four-week program, each Fellow curates a unique at-home dining experience called a Beard Box. Cardholders will also receive exclusive gifts along with every Beard Box purchase. 

Fellows use the program to create uniquely delicious menus, putting their twist on traditional dishes in each of their Beard Boxes. Where else would you find Theodore’s fusion dessert featuring chocolate and corn on the cob or Nicole’s mango-tequila pork ribs?
