Save the Date – Dining Out for Life is on March 12, 2009

No, no. Not Dine Out Vancouver, but Dining Out for Life. I know, it’s kind of confusing, but…okay, let me back up here.

Dining Out for Life is an annual fundraiser for A Loving Spoonful (ALS) and Friends for Life (FFL), two local charities that support people living with HIV/AIDS.

This year’s event takes place on March 12, when more than 200 restaurants donate 25% of that day’s food profits to ALS and FFL. Also, during the month of March, Sumac Ridge Estate Winery will donate $1 from each bottle of wine sold at BC restaurants and liquor stores.

You can help by:

  • Marking your calendars and planning on eating at a participating restaurant on March 12.
  • Talking to your favourite restaurant to see if they’re interested in participating, and then get them to sign up here.
  • Volunteering to be a restaurant ambassador. You’ll join a team of nearly 150 energetic, dynamic people who are helping raise money for a great cause.
  • Organizing your association, social or networking group to adopt one, or several restaurants. If your company supports a community development program, see if they’d like to get involved. Start a competition between company departments to see who can raise the most money.

For more information about individual, group or corporate volunteering, email doflvolunteer@yahoo.ca or call 604-992-7618.

7 years as a chemist + 9 months of culinary school + 2 years as a pastry chef & chocolatier + a lifetime of writing = this blog. This blog won't always be about chocolate, but it will almost certainly be about food. The name of the blog is a triple play on words. 1. It's a nod to my training as a classical pianist. Among other fantastic accomplishments, J.S. Bach combined technical prowess with artistic inspiration and penned the 24 preludes & fugues that make up The Well-Tempered Clavier, Books I and II. 2. In order to behave properly, chocolate needs to be tempered. In a nutshell, tempering prompts the chocolate to assume its most stable crystalline form (beta prime, if you're interested) so that it is shiny, snappy, and as stable as it can be. 3. Depending on my mood and how we meet, you might agree that I'm well-tempered. Or not.
