Chef Jacques Haeringer, author of Two for Tonight, a collection of recipes that inspire romance through food and togetherness, and the Chez François Cookbook, the bible of classic Alsatian cuisine featuring some of the restaurant's most popular recipes, believes that combining great food and a warm, welcoming environment is the key to a memorable holiday evening.
"Unforgettable meals are a tradition at L'Auberge Chez François," explains Chef Jacques. "It's a tradition based on our philosophy that life's memorable moments are not complete without a festive meal – the ambience, the artful presentation and the anticipation of delightful tastes merge together to indulge the senses and help create a wonderful holiday experience."
You can create your own deliciously unforgettable feast by serving your holiday guests the following holiday recipes, courtesy of Chef Jacques.
