Vincent La Chapelle Tribute Dinner : Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Join us as we celebrate the life and influence of Vincent La Chapelle (d.1745), a French master chef who worked for the Earl of Chesterfield and William IV, Prince of Orange.  He wrote The Modern Cook in 1735, what is arguably the most remarkable, if not best-selling, cookbook of his time. 

Chef Philip Mihalski spent hours creating the menu for this dinner. The age of the recipes is evident not only in the language, but also style, approach and list of ingredients. After reading the book cover to cover, he created the menu below. It should be a treat and a rare glimpse into gourmet food from the 18th century. 

Our host, Ernie Pinot, will guide you through the meal. After a bit of investigation, Ernie has pieced together what little is known about Vincent La Chapelle's influential life. It's bound to be a great evening. We hope to see you then!

If you responded to this ad, would you expect to be paid for your work?

Philip Mihalski actually doesn't think you should be paid for work during business hours. Philip Mihalski, Nell's Owner, actually insists that it is common practice for restaurant employers, here in Seattle, to NOT pay employees until they have 'proven' themselves.

It is absolutely clear that the law requires payment for work.
