Lopate & Locavores: Chefs Behind the Chefs

Hosted by Leonard Lopate

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

7:00 PM

The Greene Space presents the third annual LOPATE AND LOCAVORES event series spotlighting New York City’s local food scene.

From A-list restaurant toques to reality television hosts, chefs seem to become superstars overnight.  But behind the scenes, they have actually often spent a lot of time under the wings of another great chef.

Join Leonard Lopate as he speaks with three top chefs – DAVID BOULEY, MARIO BATALI, and APRIL BLOOMFIELD – joined by the chefs they have nurtured along the way.

Hosted by WNYC’s LEONARD LOPATE, a three-time James Beard Award winner, this year’s series will explore today’s rising culinary stars and their “Master Chef” mentors, the phenomenon behind foraged food, and how New York City food products are becoming increasingly recognized in the worldwide market. Each event will have a themed demo presented by the evening’s guests. Audience members will have an opportunity to sample various foods and beverages and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine at each event.

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT, BUT TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE FOR OTHER EVENTS IN THIS SERIES.
