The Les Dames d’Escoffier Dine Around – Aug 14

It’s one of the most fun and best value culinary fundraisers of the year. The Les Dames d’Escoffier Dine Around.  Over twenty restaurants, vineyards, gardens and cooking schools from Vancouver to Whistler, Victoria to Kelowna, North Vancouver to White Rock each donating one “table” for a concurrent dinner party. Same night. Same time. Same price. Just $69 per person including wine.  You choose the restaurant. We choose the menu and the wine.

Each restaurant is priced exactly the same, with each restaurant donating the food menu and table and a winery donating the wine. Gratuity is not included. Restaurants have designed their menu to highlight their own cuisine, so please note this is a night to celebrate food and although health related allergies will be taken into consideration, the menus are set so no special requests can be accommodated.

Your table may be in the dining room or it may be in a very special location like the kitchen or wine room. For those locations offering an outdoor dining experience, particularly in the form of a “picnic” dinner, guests will be informed so as to dress appropriately.

Choose a new restaurant or one of your favourites. Buy a couple of seats at the table, or take the entire table. Some venues have donated 4 seats, some 6, some 8. Each restaurant is priced exactly the same. Les dames members Sea Cider and Spierhead Winery are just some of the wineries joining us this year.


Dame Dinner of a Lifetime

Both restaurant and winery are donating 100% of the food, service and wine, so all proceeds from the dinners will be donated to Les Dames d’Escoffier, BC Chapter, for scholarship and outreach funding. We kindly ask therefore that you do tip your server.

Additionally, a gourmet raffle will be held featuring select Les Dames d’Escoffier member products such as a $100 Shaughnessy Restaurant at Van Dusen dining gift certificate, gourmet baskets, cookbooks and cooking classes from the Dirty Apron Cooking School with tickets drawn that night both online and live at an after party at the Hamilton Street Grill in Yaletown. All dames, chefs, restaurateurs and guests are invited!
