No winter blizzard was going to keep the team from Le Bec Fin in Philadelphia from cooking up a storm in the kitchen for Monday's exclusive Chefdance dinner at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
Although the star of the evening, world renowned Chef Georges Perrier was stranded in Philadelphia, the rest of his team adeptly served a delicious meal to the Sundance crowd. In attendance were cast and crew of the newly sold Sundance film Equity, members of Tao Group (of the infamous Sundance Tao Club pop-up), and the Greater Philadelphia Film Office (sponsors of the evening).
Chef Perrier, who is recognized as the Grandfather of French cuisine, certainly knows how to make a delicious sauce— I was dying to soak up the rest of the Coq au Vin's flavorful red wine sauce with a roll. The other highlight of the meal was dessert, Ile Flotante, a delicious Vanilla Crème Anglaise with a delicate, crunchy, ring of caramel floating on top of the meringue. Delish!
