One to Watch

Village Cafe chef honored

The man behind the scenes was front and center Monday night at Village Cafe. Fans and friends toasted Lafayette chef, Jeremy Conner, at the River Ranch restaurant as one of six "Chefs to Watch" per Louisiana Cookin' magazine.

Restaurant devotees enjoyed wine and eats while Runaway Dish founder Katie Culbert spoke of Conner's generous spirit, willingness to bring some heart and a lot of hard work into his food and raw talent along with a serious affection for bringing locally gathered goods into his culinary work.

Conner is the only Lafayette chef named by the statewide magazine in its annual look at chefs making a splash. Check out Conner's full article in Louisiana Cookin' here including a recipe for flash-cured yellowfin tuna rolls.
