This weekend is full of new and exciting gastronomic adventures thanks to Saturday’s fifth-annual Giant Gourmet Garage Sale, presented by Les Dames d’Escoffier Miami (LDEM). Indulge your foodie side at the sale, which will take place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Galleria of the Coral Gables Museum (285 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables).
Items featured at the sale will include quality kitchen equipment such as Calphalon cookware, pottery, Tupperware, china, linens donated by famous hotels and restaurants, and homemade preserves, oils, flavored vinegars, cookies, tomato salsas, and other delectables made by LDEM. Want to learn how to use your newfound culinary goodies? LDEM will hold several cooking demonstrations throughout the morning.
Who are these foodie femmes, anyway? LDEM is a nonprofit comprising female wine, culinary, farming, and hospitality professionals committed to funding scholarships for young South Florida women. The organization supports the community by funding organic school vegetable gardens, culinary and nutrition educational youth programs, and farm labor programs, as well as supporting regional agriculture.
