Kelowna chef Aman Dosanj announces fundraiser for India COVID-19 crisis relief

A special pop-up and virtual cooking class& to combat India COVID-19 crisis

Throughout the years, Kelowna-based chef Aman Dosanj has been providing Okanagan residents with memorable and meaningful dining experiences through her Paisley Notebook pop-up series.

Each of her pop-ups aim to tell a unique story, whether it be from the perspective of local farmers, makers, and producers, or through the connection between regional cuisine and the flavours of her Indian heritage. 

The newest iteration of Dosanj’s Sourced series is set to kick off in June, and in addition to providing diners with one-of-a-kind thematic culinary experiences, the passionate Kelowna chef recently announced two new endeavours that will help raise funds for Indian charities to combat the country’s escalating COVID crisis. 

The first is a six-person four-course backyard pop-up dinner with stories and wine pairings, which Dosanj is currently auctioning off via email to the highest Okanagan-based bidder, with 100 per cent of proceeds going toward Indian charities. 

The second is a zoom dinner party and virtual cooking class with chef Dosanj and Julie Van Rosendaal taking place on May 13. Details on how to participate will be revealed in the near future on Van Rosendaal's Instagram page. Like the pop-up dinner, the entirety of proceeds will be allocated toward charities in India.

Information regarding The Paisley Notebook’s Sourced 5.0 series can be found online. Dosanj is also currently donating proceeds from her Edible Adventures spice blends toward Raven Trust–a charitable organization that provides access to justice for Indigenous Nations.
