Hotel welcomes celebrated french chef

 

Now you can spend an evening in Paris without having to travel 3,000 miles. For three very special weekends in December, The Park Hotel welcomes celebrated French Chef Philippe Ducrot to Angel’s in the Park restaurant.

 

This is unlike any dining experience you’ve encountered before: intimate and welcoming, elegant yet relaxed & convivial, delicious yet balanced, traditional yet contemporary.

 

Chef Ducrot came to Hot Springs to take the healing waters. The Park Hotel enticed him to get behind the spoons & cook up some of his culinary magic. “In Europe, meals last much longer than they do in America”, Philippe said, with the charm of a thick French accent.
