On Saturday, July 25, the James Beard Foundation  honored restaurateurs Alex von Bidder and Julian Niccolini and celebrated the 50th anniversary of the legendary Four Seasons Restaurant at Chefs & Champagne® New York at the Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack, N.Y. This annual sumptuous tasting party and fundraiser featured flowing Champagne, the wines of Wölffer Estate Vineyard, select Belgian beers which included Stella Artois and culinary offerings from a select group of over 30 fine chefs, several from JBF Award-winning restaurants.

“In 1959 James Beard consulted on the menu for the opening of the groundbreaking Four Seasons, the first American restaurant to change its menu with the seasons,” said Susan Ungaro, President of the James Beard Foundation. “Half a century later, the Four Seasons is still the benchmark against which the finest New York establishments are compared, an accomplishment due in no small part to charismatic owners Alex von Bidder and Julian Niccolini.”
“James Beard filled the role of a favorite uncle,” said Alex von Bidder and Julian Niccolini. “He was the consummate teacher and encouraged us to do our very best and to have a good time doing it. Jim, as we called him, was the Four Seasons patron saint, so it is perfectly natural to support the Foundation in perpetuating his teachings of enjoying life in a big way, always.”

Chefs & Champagne® New York is considered the East End’s premiere culinary event. Funds raised at the event will help to support the James Beard Foundation’s mission and programs. A silent auction which consisted of once-in-a-lifetime fine dining experiences, wines and spirits, cookware and culinary travel packages raised funds for the non-profit James Beard Foundation.

With a long tradition of supporting culinary education, the James Beard Foundation announced the recipient of the Christian Wölffer Scholarship at the event. Established in 2006, the scholarship fund supports students in their study of food and wine.

About the James Beard Foundation

Founded in 1986, the James Beard Foundation is dedicated to celebrating, preserving, and nurturing America’s culinary heritage and diversity in order to elevate the appreciation of our culinary excellence. A cookbook author and teacher with an encyclopedic knowledge about food, James Beard, who died in 1985, was a champion of American cuisine. He helped educate and mentor generations of professional chefs and food enthusiasts. Today, the Beard Foundation continues in the same spirit by administering a number of diverse programs that include educational initiatives, food industry awards, scholarships to culinary schools, and publications, and by maintaining the historic James Beard House in New York City’s Greenwich Village as a “performance space” for visiting chefs. For more information, please visit
www.jamesbeard.org.
