This will be the eighth year the culinary arts program at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School will put on a swanky soirée in support of food security. Under the direction of chef-teacher Kent Van Dyk, the student cooks are given the chance to work with the pros, all of whom donate their time and tutelage. If you’ve a hankering for fine dining in a high school cafeteria for a bargain price (and who isn’t?), then Food for Thought on January 31st is where you need to be. Fifty-five bucks buys you a six-course meal, each dish paired with a well-crafted (non-alcoholic) beverage. Food and drink are created and executed by community chefs (look at that great line-up!) and their LDHSS student teams. The school jazz band plays, money is raised for both the Parkdale Food Centre and World Central Kitchen and 120 clever people come to be fed well.
Date: Wednesday, January 31st, 5:30pm
Location: Longfields-Davidson Heights, 149 Berrigan Drive in Barrhaven
Reservations: Jane Lovsin, 613-843-7722 #2005
