On Tuesday, May 23rd, I had the opportunity to meet legendary chef Georges Perrier during a meet and greet to announce the news of his new position. With a menu of favorites from Le Bec Fin, fellow bloggers and local media were able to speak with Chef, taste a sample of food inspired by Le Bec-Fin and learn about the wonderful opportunities the College will be offering with their new Master in Residence.
During the meet and greet I had a chance to speak with Chef Perrier and he shared his excitement about working with the students.
Chef wants to share his expert and knowledge with the student and enjoys the passion of these young chefs. In face, during the meet and greet a student on break came over to meet Georges and get a picture with him!
