nouvelle cuisine method.
In addition to the meticulous prepared and lavish dinner, the evening will begin with a reception where guest can mingle with these culinary stars, followed by a Champagne toast to Chef Bocuse, and ending with a video retrospective of his life, legend and lasting influence, not only in the realm of French gastronomy, but also in the finest restaurants throughout the world. -Press release-
My comments: I remember meeting Chef Bocuse in Paris when I was a culinary student at Le Cordon Bleu in 1974. His restaurant in Lyon, France was known for haute cuisine with rich sauces, fine service and a sky-high price tag. Doesn't sound like Mr. Bocuse (85) will show up in person for this Vegas $395 soiree! Maybe I'll be surprised.
