THE TASTE of Leamington, a culinary evening in support of Parkinson’s UK returns next month.
Organised by Leamington Rotary Club, and sponsored by Warwick-based property developer AC Lloyd, the event will take place on Tuesday October 16.
The evening will start with a drinks reception at Leamington Town Hall before diners begin their tour of some of the town’s independent restaurants enjoying different courses in three of them.
Organiser Linda John, whose father has Parkinson’s, said about 200 people were expected to support the event, which last year raised £2,600.
She said: “Diners will be escorted around the restaurants by Rotary volunteers and invited to enjoy three different courses in three of the town’s best independent restaurants. For example, they may have a Thai dish for starters, then an Italian main course followed by an Indian pudding. A gourmet trip around the world in one evening.”
This year’s participating restaurants include Oscar’s, Valles at 44, Momenti, Eleven, The Drawing Board, Tartine Bistro, Sabai Sabai and Mem Saab.
Proceeds will be shared between Parkinson’s UK and the club’s local charities.
