inspired by the first celebrity chef
From humble beginnings as a kitchen boy at a cheap Parisian chophouse, Marie-Antoine Careme would become a culinary legend, known as the ‘King of Chefs, and the Chef of Kings’.
Our own Executive Chef Sean Cousins has prepared a seven course gourmet dinner inspired by the father of culinary arts, March 20.
Careme’s impact on modern cooking cannot be understated; without his influences we would neither have the standard white chef’s hat, nor would we follow the custom of serving each dish in the order printed on the menu (a practice he learned after returning from service in the Russian court).
He designed meals for members of Parisian, Russian and British high society, including Napoleon’s own wedding cake. He crafted sauces and dishes considered definitive in any kitchen, and was founder of the haute cuisine concept.
Join us for the second in our gourmet wine dinner series of 2012 and enjoy a meal fit for royalty. The service style will reflect the classic styles used in the palaces of France, Spain, India and Russia.
$110. per person (includes wine pairings). Reception at 6 p.m. Dinner 6:30 p.m.
