This entertaining duo have a vast repertoire and charm that appeals to guests of all ages for tonight’s “Pleine Lune Fete” Full Moon Party Experience. Chef Jacques’ has created a delectable six-course culinary repast featuring vegetables and herbs from our on-site gardens. Mais oui, but of course, our Sommelier has selected three superb wines to pair with Chef’s courses! “What would a full moon soirée be without wine?” ponders Chef.
