We have a very special program for our first meeting of 2018. Diane Wilkinson, our caterer for special events and luncheons outside of the Country Club, is a food lover and expert. She has been catering for over 14 years and serves a diversity of clientele. If Diane is not in her kitchen working on a new recipe, she is out in her 1/4 acre, all-organic garden planting and picking for dishes. She resides in her lovely foothill Placerville home.

Diane has taken off with expert advice and training from food professionals Jacques Pépin and Paula Wolfert. Additionally, she has taken wine studies with Darrell Corti, Hall of Fame vintner, and David Berkley who started David Berkley’s Fine Foods. Since her formal training, she has expanded and grown, especially as an early proponent for green catering. A self- proclaimed locavore, Diane despises waste and loves local and organic!

Diane has been a supporter of our Rotary Club.  Most recently, she prepared a delicious meal for the luncheon honoring Rotarian Mike Collom who passed away, and also contributed $1,000 to the CP Rotary Community Foundation designated to the Rasmussen Fund.
