Bay Club Sous Chef, Mary Towers and a Trip of a Lifetime

reimsBay Club Sous Chef Mary Towers recently embarked on a trip of a lifetime to Paris, France for a week of eating, drinking wine, exploring and expanding her knowledge of the culinary world.  While there, she visited the Champagne Houses of Moet and Chandon in Epernay and G.H. Mumm in Reims.  Mary also spent a day walking in Julia Childs’ footsteps; dining at Le Grand Vefour, the restaurant that inspired Julia’s culinary career, and shopping at her favorite cooking supply shop, E. Dehillerin.

The French, with their love of food and their dedication to service, truly inspired Mary.  She was thrilled to be able to share her newfound knowledge with members.
