National Award-Winning Dinner Series Continues to Support Local Artists
After the first ‘Artist Series’ dinner by The Paisley Notebook sold out in 48-hours, Aman Dosanj, the National Culinary Tourism Experience award winner, is ready for the second interdisciplinary dinner in support of local artists.
Teaming up with local artists in music, art and science, the second dinner in the three-part series will showcase a partnership with the Kelowna Museums Society and local singer/songwriter/violist, Chloe Davidson. Hosted in Kelowna’s historical Laurel Packinghouse, the intimate 40-person edible story will take place on Sunday, April 14.
“Kelowna Museum Society is excited to partner with The Paisley Notebook to present another dinner in the ‘Artist Series’. The creativity of this food experience inspires our creativity and provides a space to explore new ways to engage audiences with the important topic of local producers in our museum programming” says Executive Director, Linda Digby, Kelowna Museums Society.
“Like me, Chloe doesn’t fit into a genre because she’s many things. The idea behind this dinner is to turn my edible storybook into an edible songbook to tell our story about the Okanagan and supporting local. This isn’t a dinner with live music; Chloe’s music is part of and incorporated into our menu. People tend to look at me as just food, but there are so many bits to me – art, music and science being three of them, so the ‘Artist Series’ gives me freedom to play. I have so many ideas, but it’s people like Chloe who help me bring those to life and this one may just be the best Paisley pop up dinner to date” Aman Dosanj, The Paisley Notebook.
Tickets to the unique 4-course dining experience are $100 per person and will go on sale March 15 on a first come, first served basis via Eventbrite. Ticket price excludes EventBrite booking fee and beverages. Award-winning bartender, Harry Dosanj will be serving up a Laurel Packinghouse-inspired cocktail, craft BC beer and small lot Okanagan wines. See paisleynotebook.com or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Space is limited, so early bookings are recommended.
Following this dinner, the ‘Artist Series’ will conclude with a collaboration dinner with Dr Lauren Tomkins, owner of West Kelowna Integrative Health Centre who will be turning Aman into a science experiment to give insight into diet, health and supporting local.
