George Town, Grand Cayman – 14 November, 2016 --Eric Ripert’s new 32 Yolks memoir will be celebrated on Grand Cayman next month, as Chef Ripert personally hosts three elegant eight-course dinners and book-signings on 6, 7 and 8 December. The dinners will take place at Blue by Eric Ripert, located at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, and early reservations are strongly recommended.

Led by Chef Ripert, Chef de Cuisine Thomas Seifried and his team, the three dining events will include Champagne and oysters upon arrival, eight spectacular dining courses, and a copy of 32 Yolks -- which Ripert will sign in person. Optional wine pairings are available.

Given the duration of this epicurean experience, it is recommended that guests reserve for a dining time between 6:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., so as to maximize enjoyment of the meal and ensure that Chef Ripert will be available. The eight-course dinner with book included is priced at CI $295 per person, while a dinner-only option is available at CI $245. Optional wine pairing is presented at an added CI $140. Reservations may be requested at (345) 815-6912.

For collectors of great reading, 32 Yolks is a deeply personal account of Eric Ripert’s early life and culinary career. It was published this past May to stellar reviews and is sure to become a timeless resource for those interested not only in the real life of a chef but also in how to aspire to success. As the Wall Street Journal describes it, “With a vulnerability and honesty that is breathtaking . . . Ripert takes us into the mind of a boy with thoughts so sweet they will cause you to weep. He also lets us into the mind of the man he is today, revealing all the golden cracks and chips that made him more valuable to those around him.” The Chicago Tribune adds, “Passionate, poetical . . . What makes 32 Yolks compelling is the honesty and laudable humility Ripert brings to the telling.”
