Behind the Scenes: Babette's Feast

Post sponsored by


This past weekend, the Hamptons International Film Festival (@hamptonsfilm) and Film Society of Lincoln Center (@FilmLinc) hosted a 25th anniversary screening of the Academy Award winning Danish film, Babette’s Feast , in honor of the ongoing celebration of 50 years of The New York Film Festival. Keeping with the film’s culinary theme, the evening kicked off with a cocktail reception at The Maidstone and was concluded by a lively discussion with Bob Giraldi (co-owner, Jean Georges; director, Dinner Rush), Bob Spitz and Fern Berman (publicist, Julia Child), moderated by Geoffrey Drummond producer, My Dinner With Andre and Eric Ripert’s Avec Eric about the current state of “foodie films.” As moviegoers exited Guild Hall, they were treated to slices of truly mouthwatering vegan Carrot Cake, courtesy of East Hamptons restaurant Babette’s, which takes it’s name from the film.
