And just like that, Tapestry Suppers held its second, sold-out event yesterday, in as many months as we’ve been around. Over 30 guests gamely played along with our randomized ‘seating lottery’ system, sparking new connections and conversations over a spread of Burmese hors d’oeuvres, curries and tea leaf salad. As a lovely bonus, one of our guests contributed an entire dessert table of homemade desserts – from a gorgeous tarte tatin to an almond tart and tasty palmiers. It’s safe to say that no one left hungry! And we raised $750 for the Catholic Charities of Fort Wayne-South Bend – double the amount from our last event.
Massive thanks to our host April, and her partner Stu, who’ve worked tirelessly the past week to get the home and kitchen ready for a sit-down meal of this scale. To Han Win and Pow Ching for help with the curries, and the friends and invisible kitchen elves who helped with the prep, set-up and unglamorous tasks of cleaning up. It truly takes a village to eat well!
Our next event will be a Persian feast, again in another Sunnyvale home on Saturday, May 20. Tickets will be available for purchase starting Monday May 8 at 9am PT. The next host is well-regarded within the local yoga community for her culinary prowess, so her event is likely to sell out. To be among the first to know about ticket sales, I highly recommend signing up for our newsletter. Until then, enjoy the photos from yesterday and I do hope you’ll join us next month!
