2018 Floured Apron Dessert Gala Featuring Chef Gale Gand
November 1, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Floured Apron is pleased to have Chef Gale Gand as honorary Chairwoman for their upcoming Nov. 1 Benefit to be held at Winnetka Congregational Church. Gail is a nationally acclaimed pastry chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, teacher, and television personality. She has received two James Beard Awards, and was inducted into the Chicago Chefs Hall of Fame. She co-founded and partnered in the renowned Chicago restaurant TRU, which had 2 stars from the Michelin Guide.
Gail has been one of The Floured Apron’s key supporters, donating her time to lead an instructional workshop at each of TFA’s 13 class sessions to date. Students feel honored to learn from such a renowned chef — but mainly remark on Gail’s warmth and interest in them as individuals. Community members are invited to attend the benefit — a fabulous dessert party — and meet Gail who will be sharing her books and sweet treats. Tickets are available for $50 per person or $250 for 6-person party pack in advance and $75 per person at the door. Floured Apron Graduates: FREE http://www.theflouredapron.
