Dallas Steakhouse Hosts French Gala to Begin Week of French Wine Dinners by Guest Chef from Dijon, France, Dallas' Sister City.

Perfectly paired with an array of Burgundy wines, the Gala menu provides Dallas a unique opportunity to experience the very best of French food and Burgundy wine.

A taste of Burgundy, France is coming to Dallas’ Y.O. Steakhouse, where the first Association Dijon-Dallas Gala on November 12 will kick off French Week 2010: a week of French food and Burgundy wines.

In a true crossing of cultures, the Gala follows last year’s event held in Dijon, France where Tony Street, chef and owner of the Y.O. Steakhouse cooked a Texas-themed Thanksgiving feast for Gala attendees.

Guest Chef Romain Détot, chef and proprietor of Les Gourmets, the highly-acclaimed restaurant located in the heart of Marsannay la Côte in Burgundy, brings his inventive dishes and passion for French food to Dallas to delight French Week 2010 diners. President of the Association Dijon-Dallas Hugues Génot will be in attendance at the Gala and throughout the week.

Chef Détot’s four-course Gala menu, plus amuse bouche and cheese course, is an exciting mix of flavors and textures, with mouth-watering creations sure to please all. Perfectly paired with an array of Burgundy wines, the Gala menu provides Dallas a unique opportunity to experience the very best of French food and Burgundy wine.

The Gala will kick off with a Champagne and Kir Royal reception featuring award-winning cheeses presented by Paula Lambert of The Mozzarella Company as well as hors d’oeuvres by Jean-Marie Cadot of Cadot Restaurant in Dallas. A silent auction benefiting the Association Dijon-Dallas will be held with a wide variety of items available from both Dallas and Dijon.

About the Association Dijon-Dallas

Dallas and Dijon have been sister cities since 1957, thanks to the collaboration of Stanley Marcus and Chamoine Kir. In 1992 a sister cities committee was created, which was later transformed into Association Dijon-Dallas, with Hugues Génot as its current president.

The objective of the organization is to strengthen the bond between the two cities of Dallas and Dijon as well as the two states of Texas and Burgundy and to facilitate cultural, social and economic exchanges. The present Association pays particular attention to the reinforcement, on both sides of the Atlantic, of economic links, partnerships between institutions of higher education, as well as collaboration between researchers, still keeping in mind the cultural aspect.

Located in Dallas’ historic West End District, the Y.O. is legendary for its exceptional service and extensive wild game selection, many of which roam freely over the Y.O.
