Chef And Sommelier Charity Dinner 2017
I am Home Chef Alvin, the man behind Chef and Sommelier. I believe in cooking from my heart and that food connects us to our past, to our memories, to our family, our friends and even perfect strangers. The taste, smell and texture of food can be extraordinarily evocative, bringing back memories not just of eating food itself but also of place and setting. It triggers deeper memories of feelings and emotions, internal states of the mind and body. Food enables us to experience and share the beautiful things in life.
Come this festive season of love and giving, I plan to share the love through my food and at the same time give something back to the community. I will be serving what I usually cook for my family and friends in a Charity dinner on November 18, 2017 (Saturday) at my humble abode aka Restaurant 2706 to share the love and help raise funds for Assisi Hospice, a Catholic Charity providing compassionate, personalized and quality Palliative Care to adults and children with life limiting illnesses.
My dad passed away a year ago and I absolutely understand the importance of Palliative care for terminally ill patients. Such holistic care towards patients' physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing not only improve the patients’ quality of life but also that of their families. I also have every admiration and respect for the doctors, nurses and volunteers and would like to contribute my little part back to the community.
This “Home Dinner” has been planned and built with the hope to spread one message: “Let’s appreciate family meals and at the same time share that love to those who are in need.”
I am thankful to my great partner, Luigi's Wines, for sharing the same passion and sponsoring the Italian wines for the event. All the wines for this event are organic and from sustainable wineries.
