Taking place under an elegant tent at Sayre Park (154 Snake Hollow Road, Bridgehampton, NY), the first annual Dan’s Taste of Two Forks is a long overdue celebration of what both the North and South Forks have to offer, from fine dining to wine and everything in between. Acclaimed chef and local Hamptons supporter Marcus Samuelsson, whose new restaurant Red Rooster in Harlem recently earned two stars in the New York Times and whose company, Marcus Samuelsson Group, is invested in popular Hamptons haunt Blue Parrot, has signed on to host, and Good Day NY (WNYW-FOX 5) co-host Rosanna Scotto will help kick off this year’s event as Master of Ceremonies. VIP Reception tickets can be purchased through the event website for $225 with early admission from 6:30pm-7:30pm. General admission tickets for the event from 7:30pm - 10pm can be purchased for $150.
A lineup of this caliber has never been seen at an East End food festival before, with culinary giants including: Blue Parrot, Almond, Starr Boggs, Fresno, LT Burger, La Plage, Mosaic, Luce & Hawkins, Nick & Toni’s, Savanna’s, Serafina, Southfork Kitchen, Montauk Yacht Club, and Vine Street Café all signed on to participate, along with confectionary doyenne Dylan Lauren and Dylan’s Candy Bar, and that’s just to name a few. Additionally, The Long Island Wine Council is recruiting Suffolk County vineyards to participate, a true testament to the value placed on homegrown wines and wine makers. Award winning Southampton Publick House, who has been making ales and lagers on the East End since 1996, will also join some of the many local purveyors that will be showcasing the products that keep Hamptonites coming back for more year after year.
A portion of the proceeds from Dan’s Taste of Two Forks will be donated to food pantries across both the North and South forks through Have a Heart Community Trust.
