Think these local women were having fun at the first “Kitchen Tour?” Yep, they had a ball and you can tell that they did!
Everyone knows that the heart of a home is “the kitchen” and thanks to the members of the mountain chapter of “People to People” the third annual Lake Arrowhead “Heart of the Home” Kitchen Tour is right around the corner.
Take out your calendar and circle Saturday, October 18 because you won’t want to miss this year’s event. From 12 to 4 p.m. you can wander through the kitchens of three wonderful homes and an extra special tour of the UCLA Conference Center kitchen. (Don’t worry, if you’re a USC fan, you’ll be admitted anyway!)
Tickets will become available for this annual event by September 15 and they will be available at the Lake House in Cedar Glen, the Tea Exchange in Lake Arrowhead Village and at least two other locations that have yet to be determined.
Tickets are $30 each and it’s well worth the price for this interesting, fun, relaxing afternoon of visiting the kitchens. This is a unique event because it’s not a home tour (although, obviously you get to visit the homes and the kitchens) but it is a delightful event where you’ll meet friends as you go from home to home and kitchen to kitchen. Each home will feature food from a different country and it features fun kitchen hospitality and you’re not even the one doing the cooking. You will experience lots of laughter along the way as you “bump” into people going from one home to another and one kitchen to another. This fundraiser is a real treat and although it’s only the third year it is a huge success.
Each guest will receive information and directions to the homes and they can select the kitchens they wish to visit and taste the food offered at that particular home. This is such a great idea and it is a fundraiser for the mountain chapter of People to People. This organization works to foster understanding between cultures and countries throughout the globe so it is truly an international affair.
Plan to bring your friends and enjoy this event at your leisure. You’ll find yourself “bumping” into friends at the different homes and kitchens which always adds a lot to the fun because friends tell friends about the kitchens they have visited and what they’ve seen and the different foods they’ve tasted.What’s not to like?!
The saying that the kitchen is the center of a home has great merit and if you don’t go away with a few ideas from the kitchens you visit, I’ll be surprised.
Remember, the Kitchen tour is Saturday, October 18, so mark your calendar so you don’t forget.
People to People is an international organization that fosters understanding and peace between nations and people around the world. With understanding often comes acceptance of other cultures so this event is very special. It is definitely an opportunity to open your mind and your heart to help understand people around the world. You will have a wonderful day filled with fun, great friendships, delicious samples of foods native to the country the home features and you’ll go home wanting more.
Fortunately, this has become a very successful annual event. See you there! You’ll be sorry if you miss it!
