Q+A with Robin Selden

“Quick Bites”

It’s August which means unfortunately that the end of the summer is around the corner. On the positive side, with each passing day in August means we’re one day closer to this year’s Greenwich Wine & Food Festival taking place September 23-24.

Ten local chefs have been named to this year’s class of Most Innovative Chefs. These culinary stars will be honored at the Master Chef Dinner on Friday, September 23, where they will prepare their unique dishes and interact one-on-one with festival guests. As we lead up to the festival, we’ll feature some of these chefs.

One of this year’s Most Innovative Chefs is Robin Selden. She is the Managing Partner and Executive Chef of Marcia Selden Catering, a leading catering company located in Stamford, CT and New York, NY.
