    During this delectable night of food and drink, the evening will feature a chef-curated 8-course tasting menu with wine pairings, inspired by some of the original favourites from Second Helpings, Please! Prepared in an open kitchen ‘stadium’, while cookbook editor Norene Gilletz moderates the flurry of activity, this fabulous evening is set to be every foodie’s dream come true.

    Second Helpings…Encore! is definitely not your run-of-the-mill rubber chicken gala dinner. Throughout the evening, Norene will be in conversation with the internationally renowned Chefs while they prepare elegant dishes utilizing their own creative flair. Fortunate guests will have the exclusive first taste of what modern day Jewish cooking is all about.

    Norene will also provide historical overviews and background to the fantastic stories of the origins of the cookbook and selected recipes. Some initial contributors from Montreal’s Mount Sinai Chapter of B’nai Brith Women, where the tome was initially developed and created, will be in attendance to share their wonderful food memories with the esteemed guests.

    VIP Tables are $15,000 (charitable tax receipt of $11,500 provided), Standard Tables are $10,000 (charitable tax receipt of $6,500 provided) and single ticket costs are $1,500 and $1,000 (charitable tax receipts of $1,150 and $650 provided). Various levels of sponsorships are available.
