We lost a dear friend today, Ingrid Bengis. She was our lobster purveyor for more than two decades. She was a pioneer, developing a network of fisherman and packers in a remote part of Maine, maintaining one of the highest sustainable standards of fishing practice. She had a deeply searching mind and we will her miss her lively conversations and teachings. We will forever honor Ingrid for the impact she has made on all our lives and on our profession. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and Stonington community.

“Well, I can tell you on our first anniversary there weren’t this many people. There were twelve of us and we were very happy to be on this property having made it through our first year. Of course none of us, including myself, had any grand vision for what The French Laundry would become. We came to work every day with one common goal: to do a little better than the day before. And with the belief that extraordinary things will happen. You are an example of that extraordinary thing that has happened to this restaurant. I look around at each of you and see all of the work that you have done whether you’re new or have been here for a longer time. I toast to all of you and offer my deepest thanks. Happy anniversary!” #tflevolution#oneteamonedream#kaizen
