As we gear up this weekend to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Chefs & Champagne, our annual tasting party in the Hamptons, we can't help but be nostalgic for years past. This TBT, we look back at JBF Award winners Marcus Samuelsson and Martha Stewart sampling dishes under the C&C tent. Stewart, a Chefs & Champagne regular, was our honoree at the 2010 fête, and this year we continue the tradition of honoring women in our industry by toasting Daytime Emmy Award–winning chef and cookbook author, Carla Hall. Check out this year's menu, featuring dishes from over 40 chefs, including a number of JBF winners and nominees. There are still a few tickets left, so make sure to get yours now! We look forward to sharing some bubbly with you.
