MEL is partnering with Beaujolais wines.
Jérôme Bocuse, son of great gastronomy pioneer Paul Bocuse and president of Bocuse group, will galvanize the finest tables. Evidently, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Christophe Muller is a culinary master who manned the stoves at the Auberge Paul Bucuse and now oversees all food-related matters and more under the Bocuse digestible umbrella.
Recipient of the illustrious title of Meilleur Ouvrier in 2000, he is an outstanding presence in the festival’s 18th year.
Too many famous names to list, but suffice it to say that Montreal’s own Laurent Saulnier is Vice-president of programming. The spotlight will also shine on all the provinces’ 44 chefs participating in this awesome edible affair, titled The Finest Tables. Regional specialty markets manned by local growers will also have their Lumière en Montreal moments.
Variety rules at MEL in music mania. From Motown, rock and new world to classical composers and pianists, such as the incomparable Alain Lefèvre, Alehei Lubimov from the Schulich School of Music and the counter tenor.
