BURDIGALA NEW-YORK CITY
BurdiGala welcomes you to an exceptional Celebration of Bordeaux.
BurdiGala is a non-profit event with all proceeds donated to the charitable foundation Wine on Wheels.
BurdiGala 2015 will take place at Saint Bartholomew’s Church in New York City.
It is an episcopal church located in the heart of New York. A sacred gem of Byzantine art and architecture, it was recognized as a New York City Landmark by the NYC Landmarks Commission in 1967. St. Bartholomew’s Church is an ongoing and vital preservation initiative for Midtown Manhattan. Taking up a full block between 50th and 51st Street on Park Avenue, it is a Manhattan rarity, a freestanding building in a dense corridor of corporate towers.
Our Chef 2015 : Helene DARROZE
“As a fourth generation chef, for me food is an opportunity to bring people pleasure and happiness! My food is vibrant and emotional. My vision is to provide an unforgettable experience for the diners in my restaurants.”
Born into a legacy of epicurean masters and raised in South West France, Chef Hélène Darroze began her career in 1990 at the three Michelin starred Louis XV as the right arm of Chef Alain Ducasse. In 1995, Hélène’s father gave her the keys to the kitchen of the family-run Relais & Châteaux in Villeneuve-de-Marsan. Four years later, she set her sights on opening her own eponymous establishment in Paris, and two years later she received her first Michelin star. Today Chef Darroze owns three fine dining destinations in Paris, London and Moscow.
