This Week at Marcel’s: June 19th – 25th

Vintage photo of Pepere and staffHappy Father’s Day to all the dads, grandpas, uncles, brothers, and father figures in our lives. Coincidentally, today is also Marcel’s birthday (he was born in 1898) so it seemed fitting to share a picture of him today. He is the one with his arms folded, third from the left. The best guess is that this is the kitchen team from a restaurant Marcel worked at in the late 1920s in Rhode Island, shortly after he came to the United States. He was a fine grandpa (we called him Pepere) and I was so happy to share dinner with his son, my father Jacques, today. So much love to them both.
 
On to planning your next event? Let the experts at Marcel’s bring our new in home private chef business, Maison, to you.
