COOK FOR THE CURE
This week I was invited to go to Chef Lynn Crawford's restaurant Ruby Watchco in downtown Toronto for a Fundraiser for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation's fundraiser the Culinary Showdown which takes place on December 7, 2013.
At this special event we got to nibble on some of Lynn's partner Chef Lora Kirk's great appetizers and sip some wine. The food was great as I knew it would be because I have been to the restaurant in the past. It's a great restaurant that I wish I lived closer to and could afford to go to all the time.
Here are some photos of some of the nibbles that were served.
We were all encouraged to sign up for the Culinary Showdown which I had already done at a previous event but now it's time for me to try and build my fundraising goal to reach the required $2500 to be able to join Lynn Crawford's team or one of the other Celebrity Chefs like Chuck Hughes ( another one of my favourite chefs) or the West Coast Rockstar Vikram Vij or Top Chef Canada Judge Mark McEwan or Restaurant Makeover/Takeover chef Corbin Tomaczeski and Dean McDermott (Tori Spelling''s husband) and the great Tyler Florence will be on hand to host the event.
I need to raise $2500 to join one of their teams to compete, but if I raise $1000 I get to go to the event and watch the battle.
I need lot's of to reach the $2500 goal and every little bit helps.
Click here to donate if you are able to and you will receive a tax receipt.
If I am able to raise enough money to participate I will blog about my experience after the event.
If you are able to help sponsor me I want to thank you very much for helping me to do something good for a lot of people and help me sharpen my culinary skills.
