A Tribute to Monsieur Bocuse
Dinner, February 26 - March 4
In Celebration of the Culinary Master (1926 - 2018)
Our menu is a tribute to legendary Chef Paul Bocuse - the man responsible for innovating and transforming tradition old-world French cuisine into our modern cuisine over the last century. Monsieur Paul is considered one of the founders of innovative nouvelle cuisine, a cooking style that emphasized fresh and clean preparations and artfully-prepared simple dishes.. His world-renowned restaurant L'Auberge du Pont de Collonges has held 3 Michelin stars since 1965. Chef Bocuse shaped a style of cooking, and inspired a generation of young chefs around the world, including our own. In honor of Monsieur Paul, we have re-created some of his most celebrated dishes with a special edition tasting menu.
Proceeds from this menu will be donated to the Ment'or BKB Foundation- a nonprofit that aims to educate and inspire excellence in young culinary professionals and preserve the traditions and quality of cuisine in America. Ment'or is responsible for recruiting, training, and financially supporting the promising young American chefs who represent Team USA in the prestigious biennial Bocuse d'Or competition, held in Lyon, France.

The Village Pub has always been strong supporters of Grower-Producer Champagnes. More than half of the Champagnes on our wine list are made by these small, family-run estates that grow and make wines exclusively from vineyards they own. Please joins us and Joanna Eland from Skurnik Wines takes us on a "tour" through the different villages of Champagne.
