Chefs & Champagne is tomorrow!
I hope I get to meet Emeril.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Wölffer Estate Vineyard
Chefs & Champagne® New York is the James Beard Foundation's annual summer tasting party. It features flowing Champagne, the wines of Wölffer Estate Vineyard, Stella Artois beers, and culinary offerings from a select group of more than 30 fine chefs, many from JBF Award–winning restaurants. The 2011 recipient of the Christian Wölffer Scholarship for wine and food studies will also be announced.
A beloved chef, Emeril Lagasse made cooking and good food fun with his popular TV show Emeril Live. In addition to this success, Lagasse is the chef/proprietor of 12 restaurants and the author of 15 cookbooks. The James Beard Foundation is thrilled to honor this talented culinarian at this year’s Chefs & Champagne for his contributions not only to the world of food, but also for his dedication to educational programs that help young people discover the wonders of the culinary arts. “What an honor to be recognized by the James Beard Foundation,” said Emeril Lagasse. “I am looking forward to being part of such an incredible event, among exceptional colleagues, and most importantly, where the fundraising will be dedicated to supporting students’ culinary education.”
