Letter From Our President

Dear Dames,
 
Hope you’re enjoying cocooning during these cold days as much as I am. It’s been fun checking social media and seeing all the stews, soups, and breads you’ve been cooking up!

Our hands-on Korean cooking class was a big success. We learned about ingredients and techniques that were new to even our group of experienced cooks and enjoyed a buffet paired with Cape Classic South African wines donated by Dame Ellen Negrin. In addition to having fun, we generated a significant contribution to our scholarship fund thanks to a generous sponsorship from Shun Cutlery and space donated by our own Dame Suzi O’Rourke at Cooking by the Book. The enthusiastic response to the evening left me inspired to “cook up” more ideas for interactive classes that can help us to expand our boundaries and cook together. If you have suggestions, please share them with me or Dame Janeen Sarlin, our Program Committee Chair. We’re happy to brainstorm with you and help you figure out how to make them happen.
