Meet Chef Peter Ambrose


Meet the man behind “Events By Peter” and his journey to becoming a renowned chef throughout the Hamptons.

How It All Started.

Since the mid-1980s, Peter Ambrose has been a dynamic figure in the service and catering industry of Eastern Long Island. His journey began at the renowned Seafood Shop in Wainscott, where he spearheaded weekend "Clambakes" alongside his father for notable figures like Sydney Lumet and George Plimpton.
Despite attending the University of Cortland with an initial plan to enter the finance sector, Peter found that the constraints of alarm clocks, suits, and corporate hierarchy paled in comparison to the excitement, freedom, and creative satisfaction offered by the event and catering industry. This realization led him to embrace his true calling in the culinary world.
