The James Beard Foundation has teamed up with private sale website Rue La La for a series of "Evenings With Celebrity Chefs" packages, in which guests can experience exclusive VIP treatment at popular culinary events across the nation this summer.

The first package is called "VIP Access to Chefs and Champagne."  This event is hosted in New York City on July 24th and is part of the annual JBF gala at The Hamptons, where Martha Stewart is this year's honoree. Over thirty chefs will offer gourmet tastings paired with Wolffer Estate wines. Guests can attend a special VIP reception to meet the chefs, have advanced silent auction bidding, reserved seating, VIP after-party access, and a VIP gift bag.

The second package sends guests to an exclusive dinner and complimentary bottle of wine during "The Celebrity Chef Tour Dinner" in Massachusetts. The dinner will be served by chefs Tony Maws, Aki Kamozawa, and H. Alexander Talbot at Craigie on Main in Cambridge. This award-winning restaurant is owned by Maws, who has been dubbed by "Food & Wine Magazine" as one of America's Top 10 New Chefs. This event will be held July 29th.

Lastly, guests can attend a "Bohemian Mexican Dinner" created by Chef Rene Ortiz at the James Beard House in New York on August 5th. Ortiz is renowned for his restaurant Le Condesa in Austin, Texas. Guests at this special dinner can attend an exclusive cocktail reception with the chefs before other patrons arrive.

The Rue La La website will offer these packages for 48 hours only on a first-come, first-serve basis, starting July 7.
