WYES Channel 12 has recruited 15 restaurants in New Orleans and the surrounding region for its annual culinary fundraiser A Season of Good Tastes, which benefits the local public broadcasting station. Each restaurant hosts its own dinner on a different night, beginning in September and continuing through December. To make a reservation, call WYES at 840-4886.
Most of these multi-course dinners are priced around $85, and courses are paired with wine or beer. Participating chefs are encouraged to feature at least one course incorporating products from event sponsor Community Coffee.
The series begins Sept. 7 at Latil's Landing, the fine-dining restaurant at Houma House Plantation in Darrow, La. WYES is arranging bus transportation for the trip. For a list of restaurants, dates and menus, visit www.wyes.org.
