Roger Verge was the owner of the Michelin 3 star restaurant in France called Moulin De Mougin. He came to Palm Spring to do a Weekend in Provence. The photo below is of the crew of the Esmerelda Resort in Palm Springs with Mr. Verge.
I had worked in his restaurant and invited him to come over and do a special weekend. He was delighted to do so and the mayor named the day of the big event ' Roger Verge Day'. It was very successful and got a lot of publicity for the hotel.
