Cooking Demonstrations & Wine Dinners

Chef Jacques Cooking DemoJoin Chef Jacques Haeringer at the award-winning L’Auberge Chez François for one of our lively and entertaining cooking demonstrations combined with a delightful meal.  At each event, Jacques will share his passion for classic and contemporary French cuisine by teaching expert cooking techniques and tricks of the trade, and sharing these recipes for the home chef, while guests sip specially chosen wine. 

After the demo, our guests will then enjoy their “just demonstrated” five-course luncheon in our garden room, paired with wines selected by our sommelier.  Patrons will have the opportunity to purchase these wines at a special “trade” price. Bon Appetit, merci beaucoup et à bientôt.

As always, we will be able to accommodate dietary concerns, given advanced notice.  Please email me at with any special requests. 

Prices include the demonstration, luncheon/dinner with fine wines, written recipes for the home chef, and all taxes and gratuities.

Musical Brunch featuring Pianist Kevin Elam


Musical Brunch featuring Kevin Elam
Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 11:00am

Sunday brunch with family and friends is a great way to wind up the weekend, and live music makes it even more enjoyable!  Please join us on April 23rd at 11:00am as we welcome pianist and multifaceted musician, Kevin Elam.

Kevin studied classical piano throughout his childhood and into high school. He has a BM in Music from George Mason University, where he studied jazz piano with the phenomenal Wade Beach. The piano has always been his central passion, and although he plays guitar and other string instruments as well, he believes the piano is, of all the instruments, the one most capable of being a full vehicle for musical expression.

Please join us as we welcome Kevin with his musical debut at L’Auberge Chez Francois’ Brunch, playing all genres of music, including show tunes, jazz and more while enjoying Chef Jacques’ newest creations to our brunch line-up, including Savory Seafood Crepes and Creekstone Farms Filet Mignon with Great Falls Indian Springs Eggs.
