Menu for Hope
I am proud that In Praise of Sardines is donating a prize for Menu for Hope for the fourth consecutive year. Menu for Hope is the name of the charitable raffle started by Chez Pim in which food bloggers offer mouthwatering prizes to encourage our readers to support those in need.
This year's recipient is the same as last year: the UN World Food Programme. Specifically, we are raising money for the school lunch program in Lesotho. Pim writes: "We chose to support the school lunch program because providing food for the children not only keeps them alive, but keeps them in school so that they learn the skills to feed themselves in the future. We chose to support the program in Lesotho because it is a model program in local procurement - buying food locally to support local farmers and the local economy."
Prize Code UW14
Like last year, I will cook a multi-course dinner for the winner. The exciting difference between this year and last is that that this year the winner will dine not at my house, but at my real live honest to goodness restaurant Contigo. As you read this, we are putting the finishing touches on Contigo and will be opening right around the time that Pim announces the winners.
Here's what the winner of UW14 will get:
- 4 courses (plus a surprise or two) for 6 people. Contigo serves rustic Spanish and Catalan food prepared with seasonal ingredients (and a dash of love) from local farms, ranches, and our own backyard.
- 4 different bottles of wine from the cellar of Alder Yarrow of Vinography. Alder will also serve as your personal sommelier for the evening.
- The coziest table for 6 in the house (note: while all of Contigo's tables are equally splendid, one table, tucked away in a nook between the kitchen and the bar, is especially suited for parties of 6).
