Be our guest at a champagne toast to Chef Jean-Pierre Augé

Saturday, December 17, 1:30 pm

Starting in 1971, Jean-Pierre Augé set the standard on how to teach cooking classes with gorgeous French menus and a wealth of entertaining stories. Chef Jean-Pierre Augé became an apprentice chef in his hometown of Vatan, France at the age of thirteen. He has cooked for President Charles de Gaulle, the Queen of England, President Dwight Eisenhower, the Kennedys, Aristotle Onassis, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, vice-presidents, secretaries of state, and several U.S. astronauts. When Assumption Abbey in Ava, Missouri, was developing their bakery and famous fruitcakes, they sought the help of world class chef Jean-Pierre Augé in providing the recipe for the fruitcake that graces many holiday tables.

Chef Jean-Pierre Augé has taught French cooking classes for forty-five years, including 32 years at Kitchen Conservatory. He will teach his last memorable Saturday morning class on December 17 before hanging up his toque, and we will honor him at the end of that class with a champagne celebration.

Please let us know if you will be joining us as our guest! We want to make sure we have plenty of champagne!
