Culinary Dream Contest
If your dream has been to spend a day in the kitchen of a chef’s restaurant learning culinary secrets and techniques, enter Chef Jean-Stephane Poinard’s competition to win ‘My Day in a Chef’s Kitchen’ that celebrates his restaurant’s 2nd Anniversary. The Bistro de Leonopened summer, 2008 in historic St. Augustine and has become one of the city’s most popular casual Bistros serving authentic cuisine from Chef’s hometown of Lyon, France.
Chef Poinard’s style is ‘classic & contemporary’ – comfort food prepared with authentic French flair. Hisdream was to own a restaurant in America where he could offer a great lifestyle to his family and St. Augustine’s European atmosphere was a perfect match to ‘la cuisine de meres’ (French home cuisine). Poinard believes “This is a restaurant that fits into its neighborhood. It’s a small cozy café in a cozy and friendly town”.
