The historic Heathman Hotel, one of LANE’s long-time clients, honored chef Philippe Boulot last month for being selected as an Officer in the National Order of Agricultural Merit (Ordre National du Mérite Agricole). The ceremony, which was held in the Heathman’s Tea Court and orchestrated by LANE PR, recognized Boulot’s dedication to perfecting French cuisine and his exceptional ability to merge traditional French techniques with ingredients of the Pacific Northwest. Additionally, Boulot’s chef’s coat was inducted into the Oregon Historical Society’s Hall of Fame.
Established in 1883 to recognize distinguished service in the area of agriculture, this award designates chefs, politicians, winemakers, and journalists who have worked to advance the international reception of French food and wine. Boulot earned the first rank of Knight of the Mérite Agricole in 2004, and is the first and only chef in the Pacific Northwest to receive the prestigious designation.
