Unique ‘Table of Plenty’ dinner event to benefit NCYC scholarships

Looking for a unique opportunity to learn about cooking, enjoy a delicious meal and wonderful conversation while supporting a worthwhile cause for young people? Then look no further than the special “Table of Plenty” gathering being held at 7 p.m. on Nov. 18 at Nicole-Taylor’s Pasta Market, 1134 E. 54th St., in Indianapolis.

Father Leo Patalinghug of Grace Before Meals ministry and Tony Hanslits, dean of Culinary Education at the Chef’s Academy at Harrison College in Indianapolis, will provide the dinner event.

Known as “The Cooking Priest,” Father Leo is an accomplished chef, blogger and author of the book, Grace Before Meals—Recipes and Inspirations for Family Meals and Family Life. He is TV host of “Savoring Our Faith” on EWTN.

Hanslits is a locally renowned chef and instructor, and owner of Nicole-Taylor’s Pasta and Market. Both chefs bring years of experience and plenty of culinary innovation to this notable “table” gathering.

For $250 each, 30 individuals will be able to spend an evening enjoying a meal prepared by the cuisine experts. For an additional $60 per person, individuals can take part in a special “butcher-block” experience. They will arrive an hour early—6 p.m.—to sit at the butcher-block table in the kitchen where the chefs will be preparing the meal. Limited to 10 seats, this experience offers an intimate “first look” at the chefs in action.

All proceeds go toward local youth scholarships for teenagers to attend the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) on Nov. 19-21 in Indianapolis. NCYC is a biennial gathering of high school youths from around the United States.
