Celebrating its 8th year as the creme de la creme of the East End summer event scene, Dan’s Taste of Two Forks continues to proudly spotlight the bounty of both the North and South Forks, featuring tastings from countless top restaurants, chefs and purveyors from the Hamptons and North Fork! All your favorites—and some soon-to-be faves—will be at this phenomenal tasting event hosted by chef, caterer and award-winning actor David Burtka, on Saturday, July 21 at Fairview Farm, located on beautiful Mecox Bay.
All the best East End chefs will prepare the most exquisite cuisine tomorrow night, but the focus shouldn’t be entirely on the food. Each of these chefs have lived very different lives, found inspiration in different places and developed their own culinary style. Check out our many chef interviews and pick out a few talking points to show them you care equally about the person who prepared the exquisite cuisine.
