More than 40 renowned chefs will come together at the annual James Beard Foundation fundraiser Chefs & Champagne on July 25 to honor chef and cookbook author Carla Hall.
Hall co-hosts ABC’s award-winning series “The Chew.” She is the owner of Carla Petite Cookies and the author of “Carla’s Comfort Food: Favorite Dishes from Around the World” and “Cooking with Love: Comfort Food That Hugs You.” She has a New York City restaurant in the works, Carla Hall’s Southern Kitchen, which will showcase her culinary approach, a blend of her classic French training and Southern upbringing.
Participating chefs include Franklin Becker (The Little Beet Table), Amanda Cohen (Dirt Candy), George Mendes (Aldea, Lupulo), and Todd Mitgang (Crave Fishbar, South Edison).
The East End event will be held at Wölffer Estate Vineyard and supports the foundation’s many initiatives, from culinary student scholarships to an annual food conference on sustainability.
