Menu for hope III
Posted by kathryn in Blogging
I love December in Sydney – the weather’s heating up, both the shops and I are full of stone fruit, and Christmas is on it’s way.
It’s the season of picnics, BBQs and outside dining. Plus Sydney-siders always seem more chilled out, relaxed and friendly in summer.
As we come to the end of the year, it’s also the time we often think of those who aren’t as well-off as we are, including the many who still live in soul destroying poverty, unable to feed either themselves or their families.
Prizes have been donated and bloggers are encouraging their lovely readers to buy raffle tickets to win. Helen, over at Grab Your Fork, is coordinating the Asia-Pacific leg of the campaign and yesterday posted the full list of prizes available – from full degustation dinners at Tetsuyas and Becasse, through to cookery books, food hampers, a food writing course, it’s a fantastic list.
I didn’t have time to coordinate a prize myself this year, but am already coveting a number of items on offer. Tickets are a mere US$10 and check out Helen’s site for all the details of prizes and how to take part.
