KCET is newly independent and plans to host a benefit June 12, 2011, at 7pm to “support the future of KCET program development for its 3.6 million viewers in the 11 communities it serves” with the biggest fete possible – an evening at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bistro in Beverly Hills.
This evening of gastronomic bliss will be offered to LA Beat readers at the special discount price of $175 a person (a savings of $75) if you call (323) 953-5357 and say they are a fan of The L.A. Beat. If there was ever a time to splurge, this is it.
Now, I myself have been spoiled by Bouchon on several occasions and there is nothing like it. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to not only eat Chef Rory Hermann’s top-of-the-line fare at various stations, but see what really happens behind the scenes and bake a baguette of your own. Though to be honest, I didn’t bake a baguette last time. I was too busy sneaking macarons.
