Even though spring has only just settled in, we've already got summer on our minds. That's because one of our favorite events of the year, Chefs & Champagne® New York, is on for Saturday, July 20, at the always picturesque Wölffer Estate Vineyard on Long Island's North Fork. What's more, we've booked multiple James Beard Award-winning TV personality Andrew Zimmern as this year's guest of honor. The creator, host, and co-executive producer of Travel Channel’s hit series, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern and Bizarre Foods America, will be be joined by a talented corps of more than 35 chefs from around the country. As always, flowing Champagne, Wölffer wines, and Stella Artois® Belgian lager will also be on offer.
Zimmern has also announced a charitable partnership with eyebobs, a leading U.S. eyewear company that specializes in reading glasses. Launching just in time for Father’s Day, a portion of the proceeds from “The Zimm", Zimmern’s new style of limited-edition frames, will be dedicated to JBF.
