MAMA ROUGE: SOUTHEAST ASIAN BRUNCH WITH A FRENCH ACCENT WITH CHEF AULIE BUNYARATAPHAN
At this special four-course brunch prepared with a talk by Mama Rouge owner and chef Aulie Bunyarataphan, enjoy a tour of the menu, with courses that include Southeast Asian specialties, with a French accent in the wine selections and European-style dessert. Chef Aulie has developed a menu that highlights her Thai cultural and culinary background while embracing the sophisticated flavors, cooking techniques, and rich presentations of a variety of cuisines. Her cooking is not about fusion or melding; it's about mixing and matching flavor profiles of the different dishes for a dining experience unlike any other in DC.
The presentation will also feature an overview of the wine program, which is dedicated to French varietals, offering perfect pairings with the various categories of Southeast Asian cuisine on the Mama Rouge menus.
