Casa Guadalajara Culinary Team
CREATIVE LITERACY EVENT--The 4th ever EAT, DRINK, READ wine, beer and appetizer

More on the group at end of this blog.
This year’s theme will have
participating kitchen staffers/chefs prepare small plates from recipes inspired
by books. Eh? Recipes from Dante’s Divine Comedy (filet of soul)?; Dickensian (various holiday geese?); Martian (cuisine) Chronicles? Beowulf’s
spicy dragon? Or tasty selections from the Chicago
Manual of Style? The possibilities
are endless. Got a recipe?
Forgive the digression. They are not doing Martian cuisine.
Go have fun.
It’s easy. Buy a ticket.
Show up. Eat, drink and be merry
knowing you’ve made a nice donation to a worthy cause: civilization.

person, which includes wine, craft beer and a silent auction. Big free parking lot nearby.

Why this event?
It’s a fundraiser for The
San Diego Council on Literacy. The website
says: SDCL’s “network of affiliated programs provides people with the services
they need to improve their quality of life through literacy. In 2012, 170,000+
residents of all ages received no-cost literacy services from the Council’s 26
affiliated literacy program partners.
“Our partner literacy
programs provide one-on-one, small group, computer-assisted, and classroom
literacy services for English speakers and non-English speakers, all at no cost
to the public. Services are provided to
those who are English-speaking but who do not read at a high enough level to
meet their needs. Services are also
provided to those who are learning English.
Services are also provided to those who want earn their high school
diploma or G.E.D. These programs operate
from libraries, adult basic education centers, community colleges, school
districts, homeless centers, churches, refugee programs, low-income housing
complexes, and juvenile detention facilities.”
