Project Dinner Table

This Saturday 'Project Dinner Table' hosts its first dinner!

"The idea is simple enough…re-connect with the dinner table, bring back meaningful conversation and feed ourselves with local goodness. This is what the small collaborative group called the “Kitchen Cabinet” has set out to share with others.

Project Dinner Table is a series of seven dinners where we gather in unique locations. You will dine at one long white tablecloth dinner table that seats at least one hundred and twenty five people. We will be served family style, six courses of seasonal and inspired cuisine prepared by a celebrated Chef utilizing local and regional purveyors. The mission is about local artisans, building community and giving back.

We will gather and it will be an awesome experience. Be part of something cool and join us on the adventure."

Gina Gavan ~ Founder & Spoon Bender, Project Dinner Table

As a member of the kitchen cabinet, I'm really looking forward to the first dinner prepared by chef Roy Ellamar of Sensi at the Bellagio! Tickets are $225 per couple, which isn't super frugal, but considering you'll be helping Junior Achievement and partaking in a novel and much needed food movement in our valley, the price is absolutely justified. Tickets are running out so if you want to be a part of the inaugural feast, you should purchase them soon. Of course, I'll be reviewing dinner #1 on my blog, so come back to find out more about "Project Dinner Table!"
