Bring your dress whites and stemware to Cowichan dinner

The third annual Cittaslow Cowichan Bay White Dinner is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 24.

From 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. beside the vines at Rocky Creek Vineyard, you can dine en plein air in true Parisian style, following this French tradition of pop-up elegant outdoor meals.

So, put on your whites and join this fancy and sassy picnic fundraiser.

You don’t even need a ticket to come if you are bringing in your entire meal to set up and serve on the long table with your friends.

Because zero waste is targeted you are asked to bring your own picnic, cutlery, stemware, tableware and chairs. Please, no plastic or styrofoam products. Tables will be provided.

Of course, Cittaslow is about sustainability so why not bring foods that showcase the area?

If you don’t want to bring the entire meal just bring a side dish and there will be a main to purchase. You can reserve that ahead by going to the link on the rockycreekwinery.ca site.

They are offering fresh barbecue salmon or Cowichan sausage with mustard sauce.

Of course, please remember all dinner participants must wear all white because it’s all about the ambience.
