As part of my continuing effort to encourage, preserve, and present traditional ethnic cultures, The Chefs Table is planning a series of events to further highlight the LasVegas area's diversity.
The first event I am planning is an International Dining club a different country every month . Food is a central component of a culture and is often the first introduction a person has to a new culture. As such, I would like to expand your dining experience by partnering with local ethnic restaurants to create and serve a traditional, multi-course dinner. As part of the meal, the chef will lead a discussion about the food and its relevance in the culture.
The club will consist of only serious dinners and 12 is the bottom number We will rotate through the participating restaurants over the course of the year. By participating, you will not only experience traditional style food, but also learn a bit about new cultures, discover new local restaurants, and meet other adventurous diners.
Your responses to the questions below will help me determine the potential number of participants, the type of menu you expect, as well as a favorable price point. This information will be used when we approach potential restaurants to participate in the program.*How frequently would you like the dinner club to meet?
Every month except July and December (10 dinners) *my choice
Once a month for 12 months
*How adventurous of an diner are you?
How adventurous of an diner are you? Extreme Foodie - I'll eat anythingAdventurous - I'll try it. It's not going to kill me after allAverage - I'll try it if someone first tells me it's tastyPicky - If I don't recognize it, I am not going to eat it
We will ask restaurants to prepare a traditional, multi-course meal. What type of menus and price point would you prefer? $25 - Three course fixed menu - alcoholic beverages charged separately$30 - Three courses with a choice of entree - wine pairings suggested, but charged separately$35 - Three courses with multiple choices for each course - includes a wine pairing for the entree choice only$40 - Multiple course menu with choice of entree including wine pairings for each course (3 oz pours)
Would you be interested in attending a casual dress, kick-off party featuring small plates prepared and served by a sample of restaurants participating in the dining club program? You would also be able to sign up to participate in the dining club during this event, enjoy a taste of things to come, and meet and greet your potential dining partners....
Let me know you thoughts on this idea.We would dine once a month like the 3rd Wedensday or if you perfer weekends.
