Sunday, November 18th at Le Voltaire, Escoffier, a play and classic French food

*Le Voltaire is organizing a great theatrical Sunday afternoon. Starting with a fantastic local actor Marty Skomal, who is playing a great monologue of Auguste Escoffier, the most famous historical French Chef, who organized the kitchens as they are functioning today. The Act lasts 50 minutes and will be followed by a 4 course meal inspired by Escoffier’s cookbook that represent still today the Bible of every respected Chef. The time is 4:00 p.m. and the cost is $50 per person plus tax and tip. Call 402.934.9374 to make reservations. Space is limited to 40 people. Having seen this piece earlier this year, I would say that this is a great opportunity to be entertained, educated and fed all at the same time. Try not to miss it.
