In conjunction with the Atlantic City chapter of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, the academy hosts this celebration where guests will be treated to authentic French country food “live cooking stations” operated by culinary students, complemented by selection of international wines, and topped off with a delectable dessert reveal to end the night.
