Culinary Diplomacy Series:  VIETNAM

Date: October 26th
Time: 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
*Reservations Required

We firmly believe, and one of our core values at Joseph Decuis, is what we term Culinary Diplomacy. We believe that food can help bring the world together and this series of cultural dinners is our way to do just that.  Try something new and different; meet people from other parts of the world; experience different cultures and hear about their foods and traditions. 

We love Vietnamese food.  Actually I was introduced to it in New Orleans of all places and then sought it out here in Fort Wayne.  Everyone was talking about the Banh Mi restaurants on Fairfield and Coldwater.  My staff already loved it!  I heard from a mutual friend that Will, owner and chef, likes to do special dinners, featuring more more than the regular menu and getting more lavish.  HOORAY! We are so excited! 

The cuisine of Viet Nam involves fresh foods - well that's right up our alley.  Though it shares similarities with Chinese food, it is heavily inflenced by the French and is said to be one of the healthiest cuisines in the world.  WOW. The more I read about the cuisine, the more it sounds incredible.

We can't wait to see what Chef Will and  Chef Marcus and our kitchen will cook up for this dinner!  We are featuring this dinner at the Joseph Decuis Farm to make sure there is enough room for everyone - so bring a friend!  Bring 2!  

$65 per person is all inclusive and includes the opening reception, welcome drink, appetizers, family style dinner and dessert.  There will be a CASH only bar for additional drinks.  

By RESERVATION only.  Reservations are required and a credit card to hold your reservation.  Your card will not be charged until cofirmation the week of the event.  For reservations please call the restaurant at:  260-672-1715.
