Joel Dondis began his culinary sojourn at the age of eleven, serving classic French cuisine to his family and friends in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Cultivating his passion and talent through his formative years, he attended the Culinary Institute of America in New York. Upon graduation, Joel traveled to Europe to expand his knowledge of the culinary arts, fine dining and impeccable service. He worked at the Michelin-rated Schloss Hotel and Restaurant Gargantua in Frankfurt, Germany.

Bringing his practical experiences back home, Joel worked for the Brennan family at Mr. B’s Bistro. His next stop was at Emeril’s where he earned the responsibility and title of Sous Chef. Upon leaving his three-year stint at Emeril’s, Joel founded Joel’s Grand Cuisine, Inc, now called Joel Catering & Special Events (JCSE).

JCSE is widely regarded to be a local and national industry leader and the largest off-premise catering and event planning company in New Orleans. In 2000, Joel founded Joel’s at the Hampton, which is the food and beverage provider for the Hampton Inn and Suites Convention Center.

In 2008, Joel was named New Orleans Magazine’s 2008 Restaurateur of the Year. Since launching his first entrepreneurial venture in 1993, Joel has become a key player on the New Orleans hospitality and restaurant scene.

Prince Conti

Louis Francois was born into a life of ease and luxury. By the age of 10, he inherited his father’s title as Prince of Conti. At 14, his marriage was arranged to the youngest daughter of the Duke of Orleans who was serving as the Regent of France. He produced a son to carry on his lineage and was a widow by the age of 19. He then turned his energy towards a career in the military. A lover of military history and a fond appreciation of the arts instilled in him by his late father, Louis enjoyed a period of great success, almost being placed on the throne as the king of Poland. But a dispute with his king’s mistress soon soured court life for Louis. He was passed on leading an army in the Seven Years War, and his disfavor with the king led him to dissect the policies of the French ruling class. The blinders he had been born with soon fell away as he delved into understanding the manipulations and coterie of the French elite. Some of this knowledge was gleaned from attending the salons of his mistress, Comtesse de Boufflers. Known for her great beauty and intelligence, she was the most distinguished salonniere of the 18th century. A writer herself who supposedly published books, her literary salons attracted great thinkers of the day including Denis Diderot, David Hume and Jean Jacques Rousseau. At these salons, Louis would was met with ideas, philosophies and theories that were never entertained at court. He was so moved by these thinkers that he became a patron of Rousseau, albeit partially in an attempt to further enrage King Louis XV and his mistress, Madam de Pompadour. Ironically, the arc of Louis Francois’ life seems to have been a removal from court by one mistress only to find a salvation of sorts in forward thinking through another. The prince of Conti turned his back on his youthful adventures at court and embraced a life, no doubt encouraged by his experience in the military, of creative thinking and revolution.

Madam Conti

Louise Diane was born into the luxury of the Palais Royal where her father served as Regent of France in Louis XV’s stead. She grew up in an age of peace and prosperity, and by the time she was 15 found herself married to her cousin, Louis Francois de Bourbon making her the Princess of Conti. Arranged by her mother, the wedding at Versailles would have entailed the epitome of excess and luxury. Upon meeting her husband, the 14 year old Louis at the altar, Louise Diane would have been well prepared for her new role by her convent education, but understandably overwhelmed at this momentous life change. Since no expense would have been spared for his daughter’s wedding, the Duke of Orleans would have provided his guests with the decadent hot chocolate favored by the courts’ royalty as the drink of choice. Also rumored to be an aphrodisiac, one can imagine Princess Louise Diane delicately sipping her chocolate enjoying her moment of sweetness while contemplating her future role in providing a male heir to the Conti line. If we capture her at this moment, we can see on the horizon both the great joy she would feel when her son, Louis Francois Joseph was born three years later and the tremendous sadness upon her death two years after during the still born delivery of her second child. Chocolate with its ability to seduce and tantalize may have dazzled this young girl’s imagination allowing her to dream amid the celebrations of the beauty of her life unfolding.
