2016 VIP DINNER
Roland Passot, chef owner of La Folie and Left Bank Brasserie, began his culinary career at the tender age of fifteen in France's gastronomic capital of Lyon. He has been traditionally trained by some of the most famous chefs in France. He has then developed a very personal style of cooking, which he showcases at La Folie, a restaurant he opened with his wife Jamie in March of 1988. In April 2009 La Folie celebrated 21 years with the opening of La Folie Lounge, located next door to the restaurant.
La Boulangerie de San Francisco has been operating in the Bay Area since 1995, founded by French baker Pascal Rigo as La Boulange.

A neighborhood staple that is warm and inviting and committed to being an important part of our communities by being socially and environmentally responsible neighbors.
Nick is the owner of Bisou, french restaurant, serving French cuisine with a Californian accent. Bisou is part of a movement called Bistronomy, where the focus is on using organic locally grown products served with style, in a casual and familial environment. We want the guests to forget about their Monday to Friday life, to stop thinking for a couple of hours and let us do the rest.
In 2014 Bisou has evolved and started to grow its own produces at Napa Kitchen Garden situated in Pope Valley, Napa giving another all dimension to the guest experience and quality of food.

Based out of Berkeley, Pascale creates delectable chocolates and creative Praliné recipes. Her chocolates let you indulge in the magic of Praliné, a delicious chocolate filling that combines chocolate and caramelized nut flavors in perfect harmony.

Petits Pains is a bakery where modern, ancestral and artisanal techniques embrace each other to produce the highest quality, most delicious breads and breakfast pastries.
We use Liquid Levain, a natural fermentation process taking 12-16 hours for breads and pastries to rise. This is in contrast to yeast, an alcoholic fermentation process that speeds the rise and limits the flavor… This is what gives our products their earthy flavor and wonderful crunchy texture.
We live and work by the motto “Rise to the Occasion”, which means we always strive to produce and deliver the most superior breads and breakfast pastries while maintaining and honoring our ancient tradition and savoir-faire.
In partnership with the largest family-owned proprietors of vineyards in Champagne, Buena Vista is proud to present our La Victoire Brut Champagne.
Made up of 70% Pinot Noir, from Premier Cru vineyards from the Montagne de Reims, and 30% Chardonnay, mostly from Grand Cru Mesnil sur Oger and Chouilly, the wine was aged more than 3 years. This champagne opens with elegant and complex aromas of grapefruit followed by rich honey and brioche notes.

We craft our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines with among the best grapes of California, from Russian River Valley, in Sonoma County. We age the wine in carefully selected French Oak Barrels, and create wines with Burgundy spirit and inspiration: a great elegance, from their distinct nose, enabling to anticipate the rich flavors blossoming on your palate, and a long, delicate and very nice finish. "The smooth and Velvety quality of the Chardonnay is just what it should be, without being opulent" says Sylvain Nicolas, Best Sommelier of France 2013; "This is a genuine California wine, with its generous finish, a light trace of tannin from the oak, and the lingering toasty, vanilla flavors."
Domaine Anderson is nestled in the breathtaking, fog-cooled hillside and mountain terrain of Northern California's Anderson Valley. The cooling marine layer that is characteristic of this region provides ideal conditions for the cultivation of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Our wines are crafted with precision and care to express the uniqueness of our Anderson Valley terroir.

Evian is a producer of mineral water from the French Alps. Each drop of Evian starts as rain and melting snow on the peaks of the Northern Alps. It filters through layers of glacial sand on a 15+ year journey deep in the heart of the mountains. Through this process, Evian is filtered naturally, without chemicals, giving it the purity, mineral content, and taste that nature intended.
