Linh’s Catering

Saturday, November 9, 2013

One of the auction items to be won at our September 28th fundraising dinner was Catering by Linh Truong, one of our board members.  Linh has been spoiling us with her mouthwatering cooking and baking at each one of our meetings.    Through a little bit of persuasion, she kindly  offered to be the Chef du Jour for 4 to 6 people as one of the auction items for CVBF.

Hoan and Jim McQuarrie were the lucky winners of Linh’s Catering. As part of the package, they met for a consultation on food allergies, the dishes to be served and the date of the dinner.  All costs for the ingredients were included. 

The final menu was:

Appetizer:  Spring roll, coconut coating deep fry shrimp, sugarcane shrimp stick.

Salad:  Fresh cucumber salad with shrimp with a tangy lime and fish sauce dressing

Entree:  Sautéed beef cubes in oyster and garlic sauce on a bed of butter lettuce, tomato, cucumber, with a side of rice.

Dessert:  Creme brulee with a hint of coffee and fresh berries.

The dishes looked great, especially when served from the Royal Dalton dishes from Hoan’s cabinet, and they tasted even better.  Yes, Linh even spoiled her servers by providing us with samples of what she made.

It was a fun experience and we would do it again in a heartbeat.


Special acknowledgements go to Hang Pham for helping to prep the food ahead of time and to Hoan for setting the table for us with her beautiful swan origami napkins.

Thank you!
Dear friends, Thank you so much again to you, dear family, friends and honoured guests, for making our 5th Annual Fundraising Gala on Sept 30/17 a huge success. Together we were able to raise over $40,000! We are truly grateful to everyone for your great support so that we can carry on with our work to improve the lives of impoverished children and orphans in Vietnam. Our event would not be possible without our amazing MC Dr. Cecile Phan and incredible local artists - Native Performer Amanda Lamothe, the VSUE (Vivian, Natalie, Van, Katelynn, Teddy, Hardy, Ken&Henry, Minh-Thuy) Dancers, the Truong Lac Hong school little dancers (Celina, Mai, Hong, Angela), and Michelle&Lily Dang. Our silent auction would not be possible without the kindness and generosity of local businesses, and our Arizona Getaway raffle was made possible by the generosity of Mr& Mrs Heuver. And thank you to all our volunteers for all your hard work and dedication to making our evening a great success.
