International Women’s Day is March 8 so do take a moment to give a nod or high five all of the amazing women in our B.C. food and wine industry — there are a lot of them out there to celebrate.

Local caterer Aman Dosanj of The Paisley Notebook has been organizing a dinner collaboration to celebrate these female stars for the past three years. Dosanj says on her website: “100% of proceeds (after operating costs) goes to our local charities and it’s pretty magical. Save the date for March 8, each and every year.”

The fourth annual wine-paired dinner will be hosted at Liquidity Bistro at Liquidity Wines in Okanagan Falls on March 8, 2020. Chefs participating with Dosanj include Andrea Callan (Red Fox Club, West Kelowna), Dana Ewart (Penticton), Christine Sandford (Biera, Edmonton) and Kelsey Johnson (Café Linnea, Edmonton).

Let’s hear it for the ladies!
