PICK-UP DINNER: A Taste of Paris by Robert Yee

November 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Pick up on WED Nov 18, 6-7:30pm

I think it might be fair to say that when most people think of a global culinary capital, Paris would be one of the first places to comes to mind. Paris was birthplace of the modern restaurant and the “Classical” culinary techniques that are the foundation of Western restaurant culture. For hundreds of years, the definitive benchmark of ‘fine dining, and certainly eating out in the “City of Light” for the first time is likely to be a transformative experience, as it was for Robert Yee:

“I lived in Paris as a teenager where I fell in love with the city, the people, and the food. Growing up on sandwich bread, I never knew how amazing bread can be until I had my first bite of a Parisian baguette. When people think of French cuisine, their thoughts tend to drift towards classic dishes such as duck confit, beef bourguignon, cassoulet, and fine pastries. When I was visiting Normandy, seafood was the predominant dish at the restaurants. And in Paris, it is common to find places that specialize in cold seafood platters. This dinner is a nod to the fresh seafood of France.”
