Here's a little inside information for "Appetizers" readers.
I have written a story on this month's one-woman Julia Child show sponsored by Slow Food Sacramento. All proceeds from the event will benefit Plates Cafe and Catering, which gives formerly homeless women a chance to work in a restaurant setting and develop skills to find jobs in the industry.
While most of us can be baffled by the homeless situation and the lack of ironclad solutions, this one is something we all can support - get women off the streets and away from potential danger, get them working, get them trained and send them out into the world to start a genuine career.
The "Julia Child Says: Bon Appetit" show, starring Linda Kenyon, is Feb. 17. Tickets are $45 - that includes appetizers, wine and the performance.
The story will be published Sunday in the newspaper. I am told that 93 of the 150 tickets have been sold. But once it's in the paper, those tickets are likely to be snapped up.
It should be a great evening for a great cause in a room packed with people who care about good food and a more stable, thriving community.
If you're interested in going, this is something you should jump on ASAP. Ticket information can be found at the Slow Food Sacramento website.
