Marcus at the Chefs & Champagne event in 2011.
After attending the James Beard Foundation’s Chefs & Champagne last summer, Marcus is looking forward to attending the annual event again in the Hamptons. This year, Chefs & Champagne will celebrate the Food Network show, Chopped; host Ted Allen won “Best Media Personality/Host” and the show won “Best Television Program, in Studio or Fixed Location.” Marcus’s fellow judges Maneet Chauhan, Scott Conant, Amanda Freitag, Alex Guarnaschelli, Marc Murphy, Aarón Sanchez, Chris Santos, and Geoffrey Zakarian will also attend. Marcus’s dish on the menu for the event will be white gazpacho with shishito peppers, fluke, and almonds. Tickets are still available!
