Fundraiser features Olympian tastes
October 12, 2006
- Diners with discerning palates and a taste for helping out can take
advantage of a prestigious event to be held at the university on the evening
of Monday, Oct.23.
"One of our recent graduates, Brody White, has been chosen to participate in
a world-class culinary competition called the Bocuse D'Or, hosted every two
years in France," explained Kimberley Johnstone, chair of TRU Culinary Arts.
"Team Canada, representing one of the 22 participating countries, will be
made up of Vancouver chef Scott Jaeger and our own Brody White. The team
will be practicing their presentation platters here and have agreed to open
the kitchens for all to experience," she added.
In conjunction with this practice session, TRU Culinary Arts will offer a
five-course gala fundraising dinner featuring the flavours and dishes the
world will taste in Lyon in January 2007.
"There are a limited number of tickets for this very rare opportunity to see
the team practice outside of Vancouver," said Johnstone. "Itís a great
opportunity for local residents to experience a world-class event."
Tickets for the dinner are $80 per person with a $60 income tax receipt
issued. Cocktails are at 6 pm with dinner beginning at 6:30 pm. Please
contact Kimberly Johnstone at 828-5356 or by email.
