Normally when a chef is invited to cook at the James Beard House, they are used to handling large multi-course events and have all day to prepare. Not so with Amy Edelman, owner and chef at Night Kitchen Bakery, whose café seats less than 20. Amy and her staff will have even less time to get ready at the house because they are serving a multi-course brunch, not dinner, complimented by the finest wines and champagne on Sunday, April 14 at 12 p.m. But a practice run at the bakery in March proved that Amy is more than ready to tackle the challenge!
