“To meet Chef Pépin and have the opportunity to host this event is a dream come true for me,” Amy LaBelle says.

“Chef Pépin’s cookbooks, style and techniques have guided me and given me my bearings on how to cook. Watching him on PBS sparked my passion for cooking and my desire to talk about that passion in front of a crowd. If you’ve ever attended one of my monthly Cooking with Wine classes, hosted at LaBelle Winery in Amherst, you’ve experienced that passion alongside Chef Pépin’s influence.”
