Neiman Marcus Christmas Book 2012: PRIVATE DINNER FOR 10

Nine of your favorite guests will gather at your home where you’ll play host to an epic culinary event! Four of the culinary world’s most notable chefs—Daniel Boulud, Thomas Keller, Jerome Bocuse, and Richard Rosendale—will arrive to prepare a feast.

And, they’re bringing Bertha Gonzalez, the world’s first female Maestra Tequilera, to kick off the evening with a Casa Dragones tequila tasting. Senora Gonzalez is even providing the party favors: personalized, engraved crystal bottles of the sipping spirit for each of the diners. This gastronomic adventure is limited to one NM customer.

All proceeds will benefit the Bocuse d’Or USA Foundation, an organization dedicated to inspiring culinary excellence in young professionals.
