Events Upcoming!

There’s a lot of news at Renaissance Cuisine, both in VA and in MI. We’re growing in many directions! Chef Channon Mondoux, who my regular readers already know is my mentor and owner of the overall Renaissance Cuisine, is coming to DC for some amazing lectures and classes. I’ll be there helping her out, name on my Chef Jacket, so stop by and say hello.

This is all leading up to Channon’s tour of Turkey, a trip funded by International organizations that will have Channon talking with some of he premier restaurants in Turkey, teaching Ottoman cooking, and much more! I hope to have Channon’s NPR interviews linked here soon, as well.
