Dabbling in Philanthropy

Dear Readers,

After a long hiatus due to illness and a demanding day-job, I am pleased to announce that I'm back, Baby!

Since the world has given me so many cuisines from which I get inspiration for the recipes I teach you, I've decided to give something back by donating a FABULOUS PRIZE to the highest bidder at Montreal based charity, Social Justice Connection's charity auction!

Social Justice Connection aka SJC works to educate people on social justice issues and engages policy makers at the national and international level to push for fairness in global finance and recognition of international human rights standards. 

Here's where you bid:

All that said, let's get to the best part: THE PRIZE!




You can have it ALL!

All you have to do is bid. 

And bid HIGH.

The winner of my auction item will receive a delicious 3 course meal for 4 to 6 people prepared by yours truly, and delivered to you on a weekend of your choice. Said meal will include an appetizer i.e. soup, salad, or some kind of savory pastry, main course, and dessert. In the spirit of the blog, I will also include a printed copy of the recipes used to prepare your prize!
