CWO Dinner Party - Night of Parisian Enchantment
CWO members and friends are hosting dinner parties in July and August! This is a great way to support one of the Bay Area's treasured institutions, while having a lot of fun getting to know some of the players in a more intimate setting. The meal choices are extremely varied, ranging from an inexpensive barbecue in Tilden Park, to a fancy French dinner prepared by a local, renowned chef. Many of the dinners include live music entertainment provided by CWO members. The chefs/hosts are all prepared to accommodate guests with special dietary restrictions. For a full list of dinner options, visit CWO's website. 100% of proceeds support programs of the Community Women's Orchestra.

Boeuf Bourguignon - Less of a stew and more of an event, this classic French beef bourguignon is beef stewed with aromatic vegetables, herbs and spices which are then strained off, reduced and finished with a butter-flour mixture to create a densely flavored, dark and silky sauce.
Course V - Fromage ou Dessert
French Berry Mille Feuille - Classic French dessert recipe that never fails to impress! The French name Mille Feuille, means "a thousand sheets" accurately describing this layered crispy puff pastry lined with a contrasting butter cream filling and fresh fruit. Absolutely delicious and accented with a small handmade chocolate Eiffel tower.
