Last month the Chaine des Rotisseurs (The world’s oldest and largest Food & Wine Society) celebrated the most famous Chef and restaurant in the history of our city! Chef Georges Perrier and Le Bec-Fin at the Bistro Perrier at The Restaurant School with 70 friends, and family members in attendance.
Two of Perrier’s closest friends, dinner chair Dr. Bruce B. Zappan and Danny Liberatoscioli, president of Walnut Hill College, spent over six months preparing for the gala, which featured the chef’s classic dishes along with the legendary wines that paired so well with his cuisine. Chef was looking good despite suffering a near death experience in 2018 when he had a massive heart attack. (Philly Mag)
Guests enjoyed the classic recipes of Chef Georges paired with the finest French wines and, best yet, Chef Georges Perrier was there to preside over the evening.
The dinner was presented by the Philadelphia chapter of the Chaine des Rotisseurs, who host 13-15 food & wine events every year.

Hope everyone had a safe and relaxing Fourth of July weekend. I escaped to Cape May, which I will write more about later this week. It was the first time in decades when I left town. Even before I was PhillyChitChat I stayed in town to enjoy our activities. Let’s chit chat about this and that.

In this age of comminicable diseases so many business are hurting, as well as arts & culture. Last week the Wilma is thinking outside of the box you could say. The Wilma, seeking to reopen in Philadelphia, says it will erect a new seating structure in which every party is in its own separate box, creating the Wilma Globe. You can read more about it on their site, as well as help them achieve their goals.
15 years ago, on 2 July 2005, a Live 8 concert was held in Phila in front of Phila Museum of Art, with a densely packed audience of nearly a million people stretched out along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The event was organized by the ONE Campaign. #JayZ performed at the concert and no doubt envisioned a future concert here ~ #MadeInAmerica, which was cancelled this year because of COVID19. But you knew it’d be cancelled as I wrote about it on This and That a few weeks ago when I noted they weren’t selling tickets anymore on their website. See you on Social Media, although I am going to do less of it in the coming days as I have to finish a few projects before I pivot with a new business venture in the coming weeks.
