The New York Times dining section columnist Florence Fabricant will be hosting and interviewing famed chef and restaurateur Thomas Keller in the second in a series of conversations with culinary celebrities at Guild Hall in East Hampton on Sunday, August 18.
Beginning at 11 a.m., Stirring the Pot: Conversations with Culinary Celebrities–Thomas Keller will be an in-depth conversation between Fabricant and Keller, followed by a book signing. VIP tickets are also available for $75, which include a 10 a.m. pre-conversation meet-and-greet continental brunch with the chef and host!
Thomas Keller is Chef/Owner of The French Laundry, Per Se, Bouchon, Bouchon Bakery, Bar Bouchon and Ad Hoc. He is an American chef, restaurateur, and award-winning cookbook author. A man of exceptionally high personal standards, Keller has successfully assembled an expert staff that shares his philosophy and vision, allowing him to undertake projects ranging from porcelain design to film consulting. He is the only American-born chef to hold multiple three-star ratings by the Michelin Guide. Most recently he was designated a Chevalier of The French Legion of Honor, the highest decoration in France, in recognition of his lifelong commitment to the traditions of French cuisine and his role in elevating cooking in America.
The first in this series of three conversations was with Lidia Bastianich on Sunday, August 11, and Fabricant will interview food writer Melissa Clark on Sunday, August 25.
