San Diego Council On Literacy Celebrates Tenth Annual “Eat. Drink. Read. A Culinary Event For Literacy”
The 10th Annual “Eat. Drink. Read. A Culinary Event for Literacy.” is challenging San Diego’s finest chefs to prepare gourmet dishes inspired by their favorite book or literary character.
The event is expected to draw more than 350 guests to raise important awareness and funding for San Diego Council on Literacy‘s (SDCOL) network of affiliated literacy programs.
This year’s participants include:
Galaxy Taco, making an Autism Puzzle Piece Tostada based on the book “The Three Brotherteers,”
Top of the Market, making a Scallop Crudo based on the book “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,”
Casa Guadalajara, making a Choco-Flan based on the book “Grandma’s Chocolates” and many more.
SDCOL’s most important fundraiser and a San Diego foodie mainstay, “Eat. Drink. Read.” is much more than fun food and wine pairings. The event raises much needed funds to support the nonprofit’s 29 affiliated literacy programs that annually serve more than 179,000 residents of all ages at no cost.
Flowing Beverages and Awards
Complementing an array of savory and sweet tastings, beverages will also be flowing at the event, with San Diego brewers, distillers and winemakers sharing their libations. The event will also showcase live music and a chef battle – with awards presented by celebrity judges for “Best Dish,” “Best Dessert,” “Best Display” and “People’s Choice.”
See you there!
