On February 24, 2013, Le Pichet and Cafe Presse teamed up with the Corson Building, Bar Sejor, Sitka and Spruce, Bar Ferd’nand and Le Caviste to cook an over the top Winter Supper at the Corson Building. The idea, which was hatched jointly by Matt Dillon and myself, was to cook an old style, elaborate country French dinner, to charge a ton of money and then to give all the proceeds to two charitable groups who are doing great work in our community: Jubilee Women’s Center and the Pike Market Senior Center. The event was sold out, and we were very pleased to be able to raise over $6000 for these two fantastic groups.
The menu, when all the creative dust settled, featured 10 courses paired with 10 different wines or alcohols, all served by some the top service professionals in the city: Joanne Herron of Le Pichet and Cafe Presse, Marc Papineau of Bar Ferd’nand and David Butler of Le Caviste. Coffee was provided by our friends at Caffe Vita, who were on hand to prepare pour-overs at the end of the evening.
For those of you who were able to attend, THANKS SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS EVENING POSSIBLE. And if you missed this event, here are a few photos that I hope will make you wish you had been there.
