Dear Friends, as you know, each year Les Dames d’Escoffier, BC Chapter chooses a Culinary Icon to honour and celebrate at an annual gala dinner. This year we were thrilled to announce Michel Jacob as the 2019 recipient of this honour. Upon his arrival in Vancouver BC, it was no surprise that Michel Jacob would open his own fine dining French restaurant and name it after the finest restaurant he had ever seen and dined at in his hometown of Strasbourg: the three-star Michelin restaurant Au Crocodile. Michel’s main goal was to open a restaurant that could match and achieve the level of culinary standards and service that are still present today at Le Crocodile. Thirty years later, with some of the original staff still here, Le Crocodile still remains in Vancouver as one of the city’s most acclaimed and visited restaurants. With its impeccable service with flair, never pretense or fanfare, Le Crocodile blends traditional French cooking with innovative West Coast style.
