For 100 years, Hellmann’s has been a part of America’s tables helping to turn meals into moments for families across the country. After a summer celebration which included a content series featuring Chef Mario Batali, Hellmann’s brought together the best people, food and ingredients around the World’s Longest Picnic Table just blocks from Richard Hellmann’s original deli.
Chef Mario Batali, Chef Tim Love, Chef Aaron Sanchez and guests Katie Holmes, Andy Cohen and Paul Pierce of the Brooklyn Nets celebrated Hellmann’s birthday at Hudson River Park’s Pier 84. The table was constructed from solid, pine wood, weighs approximately 8,000 pounds and is longer than a football field. The table will be disassembled and all useable wood will be donated to Build It Green, which will repurpose the wood to be used in future building projects in New York City.
