Canadian Women's Foundation Event

This month The Cookbook Co. Cooks was proud to host a fund raising event for the Canadian Women’s Foundation. This incredible group of women have been raising money for years to help women in need achieve their goals and gain careers and financial independence, and so for all their amazing and selfless efforts we wanted to do something really special!
The theme of the evening was pink- pink food- pink martinis- pink wine (well, rose of course! Sommelier Al Drinkle of Metrovino put together a lovely selection for our guests.) … and even pink lighting! Our friends at Calgary Sound Rentals were kind enough to set up an amazing light display so that even our walls had a soft pink glow. We can’t thank them enough for really adding that extra special finishing touch.
Among other items, we served the beautiful marinated beet crostinis shown below, with our house made goat milk ricotta, with fine herbs, and Hotchkiss microgreens. Guests also enjoyed lobster gougeres, house made flax seed crackers with a smoked trout pate, lamb flat bread with mint and pomegranate, and last but certainly not least, rose scented macarons. Delicious!
We thoroughly enjoyed hosting this event, and we were thrilled to treat these amazing women to a pink feast and support an outstanding cause.
