A mere three days after returning from our honeymoon in Jamaica, Nena and I will be attending The James Beard Foundation's Chefs & Champagne 2005 event on July 23rd at Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack, NY.
They are billing it as "A lavish tasting party featuring Champagne Charles Heidsieck and Wölffer Estate Vineyard wines with a sumptuous silent auction."
Tickets are $150 for members of the foundation and $200 for guests. Or, if you're a real high roller, pay $5,000 and get a private table for ten.
The list of participating chefs is impressive and Michael Romano, executive chef/partner of New York’s venerated Union Square Cafe will be honored at the event. Wölffer Estate is one of the most beautiful spots on Long Island...so it promises to be a grand party.
Anyone LENNDEVOURS readers going? Let me know.
