This weekend I spoke at a Gala - no other word for it - at a chateau-like home in the fruit basket of California called Modesto. This Gala themed à la Française had an amazing dessert auction. All the proceeds were for the Stanislaus County library system with 12 libraries.
The dinner supplied by the hosts came from their farm where they raise all organic. But these desserts prepared by local 'gourmet' chefs were up for the auctioneers gala.
More than 18 amazing desserts
This raspberry souffle came with a bottle of Champagne
This 'Chocolate Decadence' was bid on by a librarian at our table.
Call me honored to have contributed and help raise funds for next summer's teen read library program in all 12 libraries.
