Chefs & Champagne® is the James Beard Foundation’s annual summer tasting party, featuring flowing Champagne and culinary offerings from a select group of more than 30 celebrated chefs, many from JBF Award–winning restaurants. This year, we celebrated multiple James Beard Award–winning chef, author, philanthropist, and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson. One of the highlights of the evening was our VIP After-Party sponsored by Neuman’s Kitchen, Events & Catering. Revelers enjoyed a do-it-yourself ice cream sundae bar, seasonal savory dishes, and more.

Guests were greeted with Champagne–Cantaloupe Push Pops

Hickory Smoked Pork–Sweet Corn Tamales with Huitlacoche, Cotija Cheese, and Salsa Roja and Verde; and Honey-Cured Peaches with Pickled Rhubarb, Thyme, Arugula, and Crispy Red Quinoa
