I am happy to be participating in the 2009 Menu for Hope online campaign to raise money for the United Nations World Programme'sPurchase for Progress program, which assists low-income farmers to raise crops and support their local economies. For a donation of just $10 per entry, you'll have a chance to win fabulous bid items from all over the world. You can make as many donations as you wish; the more you enter, the more chances you'll have of winning.
In celebration, I am happy to donate a market tour and cooking class in Beaune, France. While you are visiting Burgundy, join me for a market tour and hands-on cooking class inspired by the season. We'll meet in the morning for a café au lait and then head off to explore the Saturday morning market in Beaune where we will select the ingredients for your cooking class. The menu is market inspired, local and organic and highlights the small artisan producers of the region. After your cooking class, you'll sit down for a five-course lunch with wine specifically chosen to compliment the day's menu. You learn the secrets of shopping and cooking as the French do, cooking with the seasons and the joy of returning to the table.
For additional details about the auction, or to bid on the market tour and cooking class in Beaune, please visit David Lebovitz's sitehere. The reference code for this item is EU31. The expiration date for the market tour and cooking class is December 31,2010.
Good luck everyone!
