Enjoy a French meal in honor of the 70th anniversary of D-Day, also known as the Battle of Normandy. The public is invited. Two award-winning Normandy chefs will join forces to serve a Normandy feast at 6 p. m. on June 6th, 2014.
Honoring the significance of this historic event, the Multnomah Athletic Club (MAC) will serve classic Normandy dishes from Executive Chef Philippe Boulot and Dominique Geulin, Owner and Master Baker of St. Honoré Boulangerie.
Chef Boulot will prepare the savory dishes for the evening. Boulot has been the recipient of many awards, including the Officer in the National Order of Agricultural Merit (Ordre National du Mérite Agricole) in October 2011, a distinction he is the first and only Northwest chef to receive, and the “Chevalier de l’Ordre du Merite Agricole,” or Knight of the Order of Agricultural Merit in July 2004 from the Ambassador of France. He was also honored with the James Beard Best Chef Pacific Northwest award in 2001 and the Chef of the Year award from the Academie Culinaire de France in 2005.
St. Honoré Boulangerie will present Tarte Flambée from St. Honoré Division Chef du Partie Alex Town and dessert from Pastry Chef Emily Shipp. St. Honoré Owner and Master Baker Dominique Geulin received the Meilleur Ouvrier de France honor in 1990 and was recently awarded the Vigneron d’Honneur for this philanthropy in support of nonprofit activities in Portland’s French-American community.
The 3-course meal will take place at the MAC. Reservations cost $55 per person for food and gratuity, with drinks available separately for purchase, and can be made by visiting the Alliance Francaise website here.
