Dine Out For a Cause – Les Dames d’Escoffier August 16, 2017
As a proud member of Les Dames d’Escoffier, I’m always eager for each year’s Les Dames Summerdine, a concurrent dinner party held all over the province raising funds for our scholarship and outreach programs.
This year the fundraiser is on August 16th and you’ll find fabulous food and wines at more than 30 different restaurants, wineries, cooking schools and culinary venues across BC. Most are dinners, with one exception – a very special luncheon at Sea Cider Farm and Ciderhouse on Vancouver Island. I’ll post more about all of this separately.
Last year I bought tickets for Pacific Yacht Charters and I couldn’t say enough good things about that night, and we booked it again for another superbly executed event catered by their crew for our recent Les Dames d’Escoffier Induction Dinner (where we celebrate our new members). All of the Summerdine events are of course worthy, but I’ll share a few pictures from this one last year, just to give you a taste of what could be yours for just $79.00. Many dinners are sold out already, but Pacific Yacht Charters has been so generous that they’ve given us 20 seats, so there are still a few available.
We were welcomed aboard with a Selection of these beautiful passed canapes.
Their bartenders are exceptional and each time we’ve had a special signature cocktail for the evening. This one featured Ungava Gin.
The first dish was a beautiful salmon.
We were spoiled with fresh Scallops.
Pork was featured for the main.
Many thanks to Pacific Yacht Charters for their generous donation of a table for twenty and to Marcus Von Albrecht of XFour Vodka for the chocolate liqueur. What a night! Can’t wait to do it again this year.
Tickets going fast! Many dinners are sold out, but since this once has twenty there is still room (as of July 1) for you and your friends.
