Help the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank — and sample some high-end nibbles — at Corks & Forks. The event returns for a second year at 7 p.m. Nov. 13 at Blakely Hall, 2550 N.E. Park Drive. Attendees raised $1,200 and donated more than 300 pounds of food to stock food bank shelves last year.
Corks & Forks, organized by the Issaquah Highlands Wine and Cooking Club, will feature appetizers, desserts and wines paired with the menu. Attendees will nosh artisanal cheeses, chorizo-stuffed dates wrapped in prosciutto, wild mushroom rolls with leeks, gruyère and fresh thyme, chocolate truffles and other goodies.
Tickets cost $30, and attendees are encouraged to bring nonperishable food items to donate to the food bank. The event will include a silent auction.
R.S.V.P. to the event by Monday. Learn more about the event — including how to buy tickets — at the events calendar on Issaquah Highlands Association Web site.
