When it comes to the world’s most renowned chefs, Eric Ripert’s name is always among those with the greatest accolades. It’s been a big year for Mr. Ripert, with the opening of Privé, a private dining space located next to his famed New York City restaurant Le Bernardin, which he co-owns, and the publication of his memoir, 32 Yolks: From My Mother’s Table to Working the Line. In it he reveals a much darker past than even I was aware of, and we have been friends for many years. It is a story of heartbreak and abuse in which he bravely chronicles his culinary journey, from the mistreatment he suffered as a child to becoming the Michelin-starred chef he is today. Ripert shares with Hamptons magazine further insight into his book and his early life, long before all of the honors he receives today.

Hamptonites will be able to meet Ripert under the tents at the East Hampton Library’s Authors Night on Saturday, August 13, where he will be signing copies of his memoir. Along with Ripert, in this issue we give you profiles of four of the other authors who will be under the tents—William Norwich, Ally Hilfiger, Jennifer Keishin Armstrong, and Michael Gross—whose books tackle subjects ranging from Seinfeld to the underbelly of the world of fashion photography. I encourage you to visit AuthorsNight.org to see the various ticketing options and possibly purchase a ticket to join us at our Hamptons magazine private dinner with these five authors. All of the proceeds support the library and its fantastic year-round programming.
