And at the Inn at Little Washington I just had deviled eggs... quail eggs, part of the menu for the Relais Chateaux events in Paris in a few weeks.

Jeanne -- Thanks for your responses to date. On the Relais & Chateaux Paris events:
(1) What and when are the events (including participating Michelin three-star chefs, if information is available)?
(2) Are members of the public permitted to purchase tickets or otherwise attend?  :wink:

Sorry, I don't have details in front of me at the moment. Let me see if I can find them. It begins on June 20 or 21, I think.

The Relais Gourmands 30th anniversary gala is June 20 for more than 200 guests at Pavillon Gabriel, Champs Elysees.  Sorry! Invitation only.

On June 21 and 22 there are collaborative dinners, in which 15 American-based chefs will cook at 15 Relais Gourmands restaurants in France and SPain.

Jeanne -- Particularly given your access to events like the R&C ones described, would you consider remaining active as an eGullet member as your schedule permits after this Q&A session?  :wink: For example, I would be interested in hearing about the menus for the Paris events and other press-specific events.

Jeanne, I second cabrales' request. Your presence here has been very rewarding. Hopefully you'll have had a bit of fun yourself and can roll round from time to time to post and read.

Not to mention, you could give us somebody else to chat with on the DC board.  :smile:

Oh, let me correct a verrrrry wrong impression. I'm not going to Paris. 1) Our budget can't afford it. 2)It would be one of those stories that says "I'm eating in a fabulous place and YOU'RE NOT," and you know how I hate those stories.

But we are going to do a piece soon, before the events, that will set the stage and give readers recipes from the Paris dinner.  

And thanks for the nice comments about this chat. I'll try to keep dropping in. It would just be a lot easier and I'd have a lot more time.... if I didn't have to put out the Food section every week!
