Foundation Builds Friendships BY CHERYL KENNY, Bailli ON MARCH 31, 2018, eight Austin Bailliage mem- bers cashed in on their winnings from an auction to benefit the Chaîne Foundation. Their prize was a gour- met French dinner prepared by the Lacs et des Bois Bailliage. The Austin confrères' generosity resulted in $2,000 being raised for the Chaîne Foundation. Lacs et des Bois Bailliage members did their part as cooks, servers, and somme- liers. While kitchen clean-up was hardly a glory job, those who did it said they were well paid in food and wine! The Austin confrères had been promised a four- course meal inspired by the cuisine of Julia Child and Jacques Pépin. In reality, some of the dishes were also inspired by Thomas Keller and reflected a blend of dishes by other famous chefs. Following the meal, cooks and diners alike adjourned to the living room, where fifty- year-old cognac concluded the evening on a mellow note. In true Chaîne tradition, the winners received even more than they paid for! In the end, one of the biggest prizes of the eve- ning was the deepening of friendships across the two bailliages. It was a great example of the Chaîne foster- ing camaraderie at the table. Vive la Chaîne! Viva la Foundation and all it does for our young culinaires!
