On April 16th, 45 of the world’s best chefs will prepare dinner for 200 guests. Last year, the inaugural meal was served at Versailles; this year, it’s at at New York City’s Gotham Hall.
The chefs will gather from all over the world, from Northern California to Singapore, with plenty of French and Italian names in the mix. Among the most famous are Daniel Boulud, Gary Danko, Michael White and Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Only three women made the cut, however, and just one from the Americas. Menton’s Barbara Lynch (Boston) will prepare chilled lobster with pickled ramps and pea greens for the first course. Annie Féolde from Italy’s Restaurant Enoteca Pinchiorri, will wrap scallops in pancetta and serve them with sautéed morels and garlic flavored pea cream for the second course and finally, Lanshu Chen form Le Moût in Taiwan is making veal tenderloin with morels and radish. If you’ll be in New York, hurry up and buy your tickets! If not, a flight to New York is probably worth it for anyone who calls themselves a foodie.
