Enjoy a Special Presentation by Chef Spike Gjerde
Chef Spike Gjerde has been a prominent part of Baltimore’s restaurant community since he opened his first restaurant, Spike & Charlie’s, with his brother in 1991. After a number of restaurant concepts, Gjerde and his wife, Amy, opened Woodberry Kitchen in 2007 as a testament to their commitment to sustainable operations. The restaurant relies on long-standing relationships with the growers of the Chesapeake region to provide ingredients that nourish and delight guests, making it possible for diners to join in supporting sustainable agriculture that respects the abundance and traditions of the region while helping to ensure its future. Housed in a renovated 1870s foundry nestled in the historic Clipper Mill neighborhood, the restaurant offers a warm, rustic setting featuring an open kitchen.

Gjerde’s hard work has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Food & Wine, Food Arts, Esquire, Southern Living, Garden & Gun and The Washington Post. In 2013 and 2014, Gjerde was named a finalist for the James Beard Foundation’s “Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic” award. In 2015, Spike became the first Baltimore chef to bring home the award.​
