The 1st annual African Event hosted by Kathleen Shandley, former PMA rep and hostess & creator of the Grand Marnier dessert challenge. Kathleen and I have been working together for, oh-boy, almost 10 years on these events, and every year they are more of a success than the last. All proceeds go to the Victoria Eldercare foundation, which is a great cause, so you really can't go wrong with a night of gluteny and indulgence, tasting over a dozen local chefs delicious creations pairing them with African wines :) Previous years with the Grand Marnier challenge, the chefs would create only a sweet dish. This was the first year, the chefs got to choose between a savory or sweet creation... or better yet, why not both!
Best job ever!!!
