Pi Day: Pierre Gagnaire

Happy Pi Day!
If you are a math nerd (like me), this is a fun day!

People young and old, all around the world, challenge themselves to memorize ∏ on this day
March 14 or 3.14


Pi, the ratio of the circle’s circumference to its diameter, is an irrational number which never repeats, so, memorizing pi can be a lifelong adventure!

For this Pi Day, we are not baking an apple pie, nor a pizza pie, nor egg pie or quiche!

We are traveling back to Paris to visit Three-Star Michelin Chef Pierre Gagnaire, aka ∏.

My Family and Friends Dining at Pierre Gagnaire

My brother, Don, was planning his wife’s birthday party at Pierre Gagnaire. Being a party of 8, they required us to choose the menu ahead of time. Below is their email exchange. It was destined to be an interesting and amazing experience!
