Dinner Fit For A Prince & A Princely Chef

On October 1st, Ariane participated in a very special evening honoring HRH Prince Robert of Luxembourg and legendary chef, Jacques Pepin, hosted by Les Dames d’Escoffier New York in conjunction with the New York Wine & Food Festival.

Martha Stewart was Mistress of Ceremonies for the festivities, which included a fabulous cocktail reception, star-studded dinner with course-by-course wine pairings from the highly acclaimed Domaine Clarence Dillon, and luxurious silent auction, which alone raised over $80k for Les Dames’ Making A Difference Scholarship, Food Bank for New York City and Share Our Strength.

Ariane & Pierre represented D’Artagnan, working magic in the kitchen alongside the rest of the night’s amazing culinary team, which included Alain Sailhac, Daniel Boulud, Laurent Gras, Alain Ducasse, Didier Elena, Jacques Torres and Abigail Kirsch Culinary Concepts.

Here are some photos (including some behind the scenes kitchen shots!) from the unforgettable evening…
