ICYMI: Auction Items Still Available

In case you missed it.

If you missed out on our November auction–or just didn’t get to bid on everything you might have wanted–we have a couple of spaces left in two wonderful events you might like to take part in. (They would also make a great gift for someone special on your holiday list!)

Middle Eastern Dinner and Cooking Demonstration.

Arrive at the home of Raidah Hudson and Mitch Lee, 6:30 p.m. on Saturday January 21st, and enjoy a glass of wine.

Jerusalem3Raidah will provide guidance as you make several appetizers, discuss exotic ingredients and spices. The meal will be inspired by Jerusalem: A Cookbook.
In Jerusalem, chefs Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi explore the vibrant cuisine of their home city. Both men were born in Jerusalem—Tamimi on the Arab east side and Ottolenghi in the Jewish west. Their acclaimed cookbook offers recipes from their unique cross-cultural perspective.

Menu will have plenty of vegetarian/gluten free options.  Recipes and tips will be available for those interested.

Dinner will be held at the home of Raidah Hudson and Mitch Lee in West End near University of Richmond. 210 Ross Road Richmond Va 23229

Date January 21st, 2017

Fixed Price: $55.
