A Taste of Tuscany: A Pop-Up Oceanfront Dinner with Dawn
March 24, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$113.00
Back by popular demand, Chef Dawn Williams-Holcomb received so many rave reviews for her pop-up dinner last year, that we just had to bring her back for an encore performance! This is a truly special opportunity to enjoy a totally unique dining setting along with a multi-course meal that will blow you away! Well worth the price and noteworthy of buying your tickets as early as possible, because this event is limited and one night only, Saturday, March 24th. Please do not wait to buy your tickets!
Join us for an Italian inspired dinner featuring seafood from our shore, prepared in traditional Tuscan flavors. Spoil yourself with an 7+ course tasting menu accompanied by paired Italian wines.
Enjoy the gorgeous setting of the oceanfront from the Grande Paradise vacation home by Carolina Designs. This home proved to be the perfect setting for our pop-up dinners last year and we are so very pleased that Carolina Designs has let us use it once again. The home, along with it’s oceanfront panoramic views, boasts formal seating for up to 40 with 3 large dining tables in the expansive upper deck great room. This is a plated, individually served, 7 course dinner but you will be seated family style so you can get to interact and meet other attendees while you dine and between courses. (We received many compliments from guests last year saying they really enjoyed meeting others and sharing this experience).
