Guild Hall of East Hampton will be giving foodies a chance to hear from some of the culinary world best this summer, as they kick off their Stirring the Pot: Dishing with Culinary Celebrities series. The discussions will take place throughout August, and will feature Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten on Sunday, August 7th, restaurateur and hospitality expert Danny Meyer on Sunday, August 14th, and Chef Wolfgang Puck on Sunday, August 28th. Lectures begin at 11 a.m.

"The culinary series is one of my favorite programs at Guild Hall, it provides the dedicated foodies of the Hamptons with an experience that they can't get anywhere else locally - the chance to hear an incredible interview, ask questions, and then meet a fabulous food world celebrity afterwards at a book signing," said Guild Hall General Manager, Jennifer Brondo.

All of the guests will be interviewed by Florence Fabricant, a well-known food writer and regular contributor to the New York Times dining section.

Jean-Georges Vongerichten, a highly regarded, French born chef, is known for his "constellation of three and four star restaurants worldwide."

Danny Meyer is the CEO of the Union Square Hospitality Group, which boasts restaurants such as Gramercy Tavern, Union Square Café, The Modern, and more, and is the founder of Shake Shack.

Wolfgang Puck, a name "synonymous with the best of restaurant hospitality and the ultimate in all aspects of the culinary arts," also boasts his own eponymous restaurants all over the country. His mother, who was a chef in the Austrian town in which he grew up, inspired him to become a chef.

Tickets for each of the talks start at $15 for general admission ($13 for Guild Hall members). Additionally, VIP tickets are available for $50, which includes admission to the talk as well as a pre-talk champagne reception with the celebrity speakers.

Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street in East Hampton. For more information, call 631-324-0806 or visit www.guildhall.com.
