Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten will host a historic gathering of the Hamptons’ most celebrated chefs in a once-in-a-lifetime evening of fine dining honoring Florence Fabricant, New York Times food and wine writer and Guild Hall Trustee, as he joins Dan’s Chefs of the Hamptons at Bridgehampton’s historic Topping Rose House in support of Guild Hall on Saturday, June 29.

Born in France, Vongerichten trained under several revered chefs before traveling to Asia to further his culinary skills at three luxury hotels. He has published many cookbooks, beginning with Simple Cuisine in 1990 and culminating in his upcoming JGV: A Life in 12 Recipes, set to release October 8, 2019. The brilliant chef is also a master restaurateur, opening a number of popular eateries including The Inn at Pound Ridge, ABC Kitchen and Jean-Georges at Topping Rose House.
