Please join us on Saturday, April 20th 2024 at 11am as Chef Jacques hosts a very special and lively cooking demo and grand luncheon experience as we celebrate our 70th Anniversary “Celebrating the Classics” and Honoring the Past.

Chef will guide you through some of our most well-known and favorite classic menu items during a lively cooking demonstration. Learn 70 years of culinary history of Papa and Mama’s culinary journey from Washington DC to the present “French Countryside” of Great Falls.

After our cooking demo, retreat to one of our beautiful dining rooms, decorated in Alsace style, and enjoy your four-course menu as demonstrated by Chef, complete with delectable wine pairings by Paul Haeringer and our sommelier, Alex Bardsley.
