John is the owner of the celebrated Gertrude’s Restaurant at the Baltimore Museum of Art. John is often called “The Culinary Ambassador of the Chesapeake Bay,” and he has written four popular cookbooks on the cuisine of the region. The 25th Anniversary Edition of Chesapeake Bay Cooking with John Shields, released by Johns Hopkins University Press in 2015, was a reunion of 25 years of popular classic dishes.
In 2018, John released The New Chesapeake Kitchen – an urgent call to embrace new growing, producing, eating and cooking practices that are “Healthy for Bay and Body”. During his appearances, and in his writings, John expresses his passionate convictions about healthy eating and the importance of supporting the growers, producers, and food artisans of one’s region.
