The reason I am telling you this is that those funds have to come from somewhere , and one of their big events is the MEN WHO COOK Barbecue Edition .. Every year we miss the big event because we are in Kyrgyzstan, but you know that if I was in Canada I would for sure be entered in this competition.. If you did not know, my profession for 20 years was a cook / restaurant manager . I even did catering on the side. So I got thinking .."Why let 10 000 km get in the way .
So how can we do this .. Well Each cook has to sell 8 tickets at $25 a ticket and cook 40 portions for the event .. so that works out to 8 tickets / $25 .. So for every ticket someone purchases in my name or donates in my name if you can't make it to the event, I will cook a special BBQ meal for 5 orphans.
This has got me thinking what would be an awesome traditional meal I could serve,, I have settles on Shashleek and Ploff. and depending on the # of tickets sold I may have to take some kids fishing as well so we can add fresh grilled fish to the menu..For this I may have to enlist the help of some of my other MEN WHO COOK here in Kyrgyzstan ... Here is what the menu will look like
Everything right down to the Chai (tea) will be cooked in the traditional manor
But if that is not enough, I have called in the ringer .. we will be visited by Talbek and Tumara, Champion eagle hunters.
You want a competition...hahaha Bring it on .. So here is what I need from you .. go to the iam1ru.com page link found here and purchase a ticket for just $25 . If you are not actualy going to go to the event, please be sure to let them know in the memo box provided at check out so that we can know to prepare your meal here and not there.
There is one other way you can attend.. Aeroflote JFK to FRU conecting in Moscow would have you here in just 18 hours..
