Chef Walter Bundy
Shagbark, formerly Lemaire
Duke's is just as at home on the menu of a historic, fine dining restaurant as it is between two slabs of white bread with a tomato. Just ask Walter Bundy, the head chef of Lemaire at The Jefferson Hotel and the newly-opened Shagbark (both in Richmond, Virginia). Herbed Duke's Mayonnaise is essential on Bundy's modern take on the classic BLT.
"Walter Bundy wouldn’t shut up about it, and I was like, ‘What’s the big deal?’ I realized at that moment it was like a religion. And there was something different about it."
