It’s time to pull the tents out of storage and polish our Champagne flutes—Chefs & Champagne® New York
is almost here!
Chefs & Champagne New York, the James Beard Foundation’s annual summer tasting party in the Hamptons, features flowing bubbly, the wines of Wölffer Estate Vineyard, and culinary offerings from a select group of more than 30 fine chefs, many from JBF Award–winning restaurants. There will also be a silent auction of fantastic culinary and travel packages to raise money for JBF (we're already accepting bids online
!), and the 2011 recipient of the Christian Wölffer Scholarship for wine and food studies will be announced as well.
This year’s event will honor the great Emeril Lagasse, a beloved chef who made cooking fun with his popular TV show, Emeril Live
. Aside from his success on the small screen, Lagasse is also the chef/proprietor of 12 restaurants and the author of 15 cookbooks. We are thrilled to honor this talented culinarian at this year’s Chefs & Champagne New York for his contributions to the world of food, as well as his dedication to educational programs that help young people discover the wonders of the culinary arts.
In anticipation of this Saturday’s festivities, we’re running a contest to see how much you know about Mr. Lagasse’s favorite things. We’ve got five questions about Emeril’s preferred foods and hobbies, and we’ll be posting one question each weekday of this week. If you think you’ve got a correct answer, leave it in the comments below. Anyone who answers at least one of the five questions correctly will be eligible to win an Emeril™ by T-fal® slow cooker
! (Comments containing correct answers submitted in response to any of the five questions by 12:00 A.M. Eastern Standard Time on Saturday, July 23, will be eligible; see the complete rules below.)
Without further ado, here’s today’s question:
What is Emeril’s favorite kind of po’ boy?
Good luck! Check back tomorrow for another question, and stay tuned to Delights & Prejudices all week for recipes from participating Chefs & Champagne New York chefs!
