Multiple James Beard Award-winning TV personality, chef, and food writer Andrew Zimmern will be honored at Chefs & Champagne New York on Saturday, July 20, 2013. The tasting party and fundraiser will be held at Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack. The evening features the wines of Wölffer Estate Vineyard, Stella Artois Belgian lager, Champagne, and succulent tastings from over 35 fine chefs including many JBF Award-winning restaurants.
Zimmern was humbled by the honor saying, “I never thought my ‘bizarre’ culinary journey would include a stop in the Hamptons, where I will join the ranks of such prestigious past Chefs & Champagne honorees including Thomas Keller, Wolfgang Puck and Emeril Lagasse.”
Eyebobs, a leading U.S. eyewear company specializing in reading glasses, and Zimmern have teamed up for “The Zimm,” a limited-edition eyeglass frames. They will be e Launching just in time for Father’s Day and a portion of the proceeds will go towards furthering the James Beard Foundation’s mission and programs.
