Indulge your tastebuds as Houston’s own Chef David Cordúa launches his new YUM DMC pop-up dinner series with a cocktail pairing dinner featuring French spirits at Bar Boheme on Thursday, September 27, 2018.

The special one-night only meal will be hosted in Boheme’s beautiful private room, located in the house immediately to the right of the bar’s entrance.

Lucky attendees will enjoy a delicious, five-course meal, with each course paired with a cocktail made with fabulous French spirits and liquors.

Although Cordúa is often associated with Latin cuisine, he is no stranger to French dishes, desserts, and drinks. He earned Les Grand Diplômes in Cuisine and Pastry from the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu in Paris in 2005.

During his training in France, he also learned the foundations of cooking while working at La Tour d’Argent, one of Paris’ oldest restaurants, along with neighborhood bistro L’Auberge Brassane and a local pizzeria.
