Celebrating its fifth year, Dan’s Taste of Two Forks, presented by Farrell Building Company, continues to entice only the best restaurants, wineries and purveyors to showcase their goods for a mouth-watering evening. Food Network’s The Kitchen co-host and longtime Hamptonite Katie Lee, who recently released her new cookbook Endless Summer, returns to co-host the night with renowned Iron Chef and Cleveland restaurateur Michael Symon, star of ABC’s The Chew.

The event will honor restaurateur, author and lifestyle maven B. Smith, for her dedication to dining in the Hamptons and Manhattan, as well as the country through her role with the American Chef Corps.

In addition to the dozens of restaurants that participate each year, Taste of Two Forks also showcases the abundance of local artisanal purveyors who help make the East End a true foodies’ find. Live music will energize the crowd as they watch the sunset from inside the elegant tent, and VIP ticket holders will have ample space to relax and indulge in a private lounge filled with oysters, specialty drinks and other exclusive perks! A portion of this year’s ticket proceeds will go to benefit All For The East End (AFTEE), an organization that supports East End nonprofits.

Dan’s Taste of Two Forks takes place at Sayre Park, 156 Snake Hollow Road in Bridgehampton, on July 18 from 7:30 to 10 p.m, with VIP Preview at 6:30 p.m. General admission tickets are $170 (VIP Sold Out). Visit DansTaste.com to purchase now.
