Show 7: November 24, 2012: Amelia Marneau of Marche Moderne

Florent and Amelia Marneau of Marche Moderne at South Coast PlazaFlorent and Amelia Marneau set the standard for elegant, unpretentious fine-dining when they opened Marche Moderne in 2007. Chef Florent had previously launched the very successful Pinot Provence for master chef Joachim Splichal (his first venture in Orange County.) Amelia was a highly regarded executive pastry chef. Now Chef Florent is the menu maker and Amelia runs the front-of-the-house and also creates the superb dessert menu. Talk about teamwork…

Amelia spoke about one of a series of delectable special events that Marche Moderne orchestrates during the year to keep the restaurant fresh. Now through December 30th is the festive “40 Days of Champagne and Caviar” Holiday Celebration. It’s a nightly special menu of six premium caviar selections and accompanying bubbly from four renowned Champagne houses along with the traditional accoutrements and caviar-friendly cocktails. How about that for Holiday spirit ?
