Chef, Farmer, Winemaker

A dinner with a theme of “chef, farmer, and winemaker” will be served later this month at the James Beard House by Michael Rozzi, the chef at 1770 House in East Hampton, along with Michael Cohen, the restaurant’s wine director. The theme pays homage to the teamwork behind the success of the restaurant, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary. 

The anniversary celebration dinner will take place on Oct. 26 at the James Beard House at 167 West 12th Street in Manhattan. Tickets are $175, or $135 for James Beard Foundation members, and reservations can be made through the foundation.

The menu will feature five courses that showcase local bounty, including Montauk fluke and Bonac clams, and items from Mecox Bay Dairy, the Milk Pail, and Amber Waves and Balsam Farms. Four courses will be paired with wines from the Kontokosta Winery in Greenport. Following hors d’oeuvres, dinner will include hand-cut spicy Montauk fluke, roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts salad, organic North Fork quail, pasture-raised Bridgehampton beef, and apple en croute with preserved summer cherries.
