A Taste of France BY BARBARA PROUD, Vice Chargée de Presse ON MARCH 21, the First State Bailliage celebrated World Chaîne Day a month early with a glori- ous French-themed dinner at Domaine Hudson in Wilmington, Delaware. Ranked among the city's best restaurants, Domaine Hudson is owned by two of the First State Chapter's newest professional members: Maîtres Restaurateurs Mike and Beth Ross. Executive Chef Dwain Kalup and committee chair Vice Chargée de Missions Susan Tesier drew from the venue's 450 wines to design a menu filled with crowd-pleasing food and wine pairings. Other event commit- tee members were Dame de la Chaîne Katherine Berg, Vice Echanson Honoraire Linda Collier, Vice Chancelier-Argentier Michelle Hannum, Vice Echanson Laurie Jacobs, and Maître Restaurateur Beth Ross. As a departure from the customary champagne to begin the evening, diners were served a classic French 75 cocktail. It was a wonder- ful way to mark World Chaîne Day and the chapter's new mem- bers, among whom was Maître Restaurateur Bryan Nye in addition to the Rosses. First State members were also pleased to be joined by two visiting confrères: Philadelphia Vice Conseiller Gastronomique Paul Schulze and Delaware Valley Vice Echanson Honoraire Christina Sygnecki.
