Event Description


Join us at James Beard Foundation’s Chefs & Champagne® for delicious seasonal tastings from over 35 chefs, complemented with flowing Champagne Boizel and Wölffer Estate wines, and be a part of JBF's year-long "Rise" celebration—a salute to the countless ways our food community rises to meet the world’s challenges and makes it a more delicious, diverse, and sustainable place for all. Held on Saturday, July 28, 2018 at the stunning, sustainably-farmed Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack, NY, this annual culinary highlight of the Hamptons summer season will showcase chefs who embody the leadership and commitment that JBF supports everyday through its many programs including Awards, Women’s Leadership, Impact programs, and Scholarship, including announcement of the 2018 recipient of Christian Wölffer Scholarship at Chefs & Champagne.


Our 2018 Guest of Honor is Padma Lakshmi, host and executive producer of Bravo’s James Beard Award–winning and Emmy award–winning Top Chef, food expert, model, actress, and best-selling author.
