For nearly 20 years, JBF Greens NYC has come together in December to celebrate the season at the historic James Beard House. This year, we will host a virtual version of our Annual Holiday Party for Greens in New York and Chicago to recreate some of the festivities at home.

Executive chef Cedric Harden of River Roast in Chicago and executive chef Ayesha Nurdjaja of Shuka in New York City will each prepare a party kit for their respective cities, including a selection of holiday-inspired bites paired with wine from J Vineyards & Winery. Winemaker Nicole Hitchcock will then shed some light on sparkling and stills before sharing her insight on great wines to feature on your holiday tables.

Each ticket includes one (1) custom party kit, which contains a selection of festive holiday-inspired bites for one (1) guest along with one (1) bottle of Sparkling Cuvée 20 from J Vineyards & Winery.

All reservations are non-refundable and must be made in advance.

*$40 of your ticket price will go directly to the host chef while $5 will go towards the Foundation’s programs, including our Open For Good campaign to help support independent restaurants.
