A special, five-course meal, taking place on International Women’s Day in Kelowna will raise money for the Canadian Mental Health Association and Slow Food Thompson Okanagan.

The March 8 celebration will bring together a broad cross-section of culinary talents, including Aman Dosanj of The Paisley Notebook, Dana Ewart of Joy Road Catering, Mona Johannson of Sunshine Farm and more.

Each Chef will take on a course with the International Women’s Day #BeBoldForChange theme in mind, and their dishes will be paired with wine donated by female Winemakers from across the Okanagan

“I wanted to bring together some truly inspirational cooks and winemakers with great stories, and they just happened to be female. So, it made sense to collaborate for International Women’s Day,” says Dosanaj, the event’s organizer.

“This type of line-up has never been done before and we thought that it was time. I’ve recently volunteered with the CMHA Kelowna and food has made such an impact on the participants’ lives – it’s now time to tell those stories and raise awareness.”

The dinner will take place from 6-9 p.m. on March 8 in the Stewart Family Room at Quails’ Gate Winery. Tickets include a reception drink by Harry Dosanj and a five-course dinner with wine pairings.

This event features a set menu and silent auction. Reservations are required as there are a limited number of seats available. For more information visit the event’s webpage.
