Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Chicago As The French Do

Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Chicago As The French Do

Valentine’s Day is magical in Chicago, but it’s rich origins and traditions lead back to France, with the holiday first being documented between the 14th and 15th centuries. It was noted that in February, birds and other animals begin to pair off –  and humans, it seemed, also.  Men of french towns and villages visited various homes to swoon and delight their potential love prospects. It is also rumored that the first Valentine’s Day card was sent by Charles, the Duke of Orleans, professing his undying love to his wife, while in prison in 1415.

In modern France, the Valentine’s Day tradition is most often celebrated with gestures of flowers, weekend trips or through romantic dinners. Valentine’s Day in France is one of the most romantic times of the year, especially since the French coined this ardent tradition.

Chef Joho’s rich childhood in Alsace has transcended into his cooking. No wonder his dishes are deemed romantic, whimsical and decadent. He believes that the best way to celebrate the holiday is through French cuisine and you can tell through the menu at Everest. Join us on Wednesday, February 14th, and allow Everest Restaurant to bring the best of France – its food, wine and romance –  to Chicago.

Joyeuse Saint Valentin to you and yours!
