Greenwich Wine + Food Festival Announces 2016 Most Innovative Chefs


The sixth annual Greenwich Wine + Food Festival, presented by Serendipity magazine and benefitting Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp and The Greenwich Department of Parks and Recreation, has announced the ten local chefs who have been named to this year’s class of Most Innovative Chefs. These culinary stars will be honored at the Master Chef Dinner on Friday, Sept. 23, where they will prepare their unique dishes and interact one-on-one with festival guests.

“This year’s class of honorees continue to push the envelope on fresh, creative, unique fare for local foodies lucky enough to live or work in Fairfield and Westchester Counties,” said Suni Unger, Founder + CEO of Unger Publishing and the Founder + CEO of Greenwich Wine + Food Festival. “Each year, we assemble our group of alumni chefs who have been honored in past years to flag for us whom they feel are making their mark in the local culinary world, and once again, this year’s group of talent makes dining out an experience of its own.”
