Bocuse d'Or USA Dinner

Michelin stars will align on Monday, February 8 when David Kinch joins Daniel Patterson at his restaurant Coi for a special one-night-only dinner. They will combine their culinary talents in support of Bocuse d’Or USA, of which Patterson is a Culinary Council member. All chefs on the Council are supporting the foundation by hosting special dinners in early February.

Patterson and Kinch will alternate courses, and Coi’s pastry chef Bill Corbett will prepare dessert. The chefs have some surprises in store including several amuse bouches, an intermezzo course, and mignardises.

To emphasize the Foundation’s commitment to sustainability and great American products, a different American heritage breed will be chosen each year. This year’s dinner series celebrates American heritage breed poultry. Patterson and Kinch’s menu will feature poultry from Soul Food Farm.

Secure your reservations early, as this sensational event will be on the top of this season’s must-do list. Reservations are available by calling Coi at 415-393-9000. Please note that Manresa will not be taking reservations. Coi is located at 373 Broadway in San Francisco.

The seven-course Bocuse d’Or Dinner is $195 per person, excluding tax and gratuity. Sommelier Matthew Fitch of Coi and Wine Director Jeff Bareilles of Manresa will pair wines for an additional supplement.

Bocuse d’Or USA trains American chefs who will represent the U.S. at the international Bocuse d’Or competition in Lyon, France in 2011. For more information, visit Bocuse d’Or USA.
