Sept. 11, 2013 Brookstreet Hotel, 525 Legget Dr.

Tickets (2012 price): $150 

Launched in June 2003 to mark the opening of Brook-street Hotel, Lumière has become one of Ottawa’s best summer garden parties, raising money for local charities. Last September, more than 530 people raised $74,000 as they enjoyed superlative food served at stations prepared by Brookstreet executive chef Clifford Lyness and his chefs.

The evening ends with a spectacular fireworks show. Beneficiaries for the 11th edition are Wesley Clover Foundation and the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. Tickets go on sale in July; details expected at the Brookstreet website.

**Food Tease’s thoughts: years ago I had the pleasure of working longside some of Ottawa’s better known chefs: Kurt Waldele, Frederic Filliodeau, Michael Blackie just to name a few. This event was stellar and very well organised for the guests. The price is a bit steep but it all goes to a good cause. I still have fond memories sipping Crystal champagne as the night sky was lite up with the beautiful firework display put on for the guests.

The stunningly beautiful Trafalgar Falls, located in the Trois Piton National Park!!😍😍

These famous twin waterfalls are a 20-minute drive from Dominica's capital, Roseau. It's a short 10 to 15 minute walk along a well-maintained path to the viewing platform, where you can photograph both falls.

Fun fact: The smaller waterfall has cool refreshing water, whereas the tall one is a hot spring.💧🔥

Dominica's natural beauty is endless!!😍
After some incredible snorkeling in Toucari Bay with @wanderlustcaribbean we needed some well deserved substance to refuel our bodies! 🤿🐟🐠🏝
The Keep'in It Real restaurant was the ideal eatery for some tasty snapper 🐟 with all its delicious trimmings (local greens, fried plantains, fritters with some rice and beans). 
To wash it all down, some local Rum with passion fruit juice 😋 🍹
This is what experiencing a new destination should be like...amazing adventures, delicious food and connecting with like-minded enthusiasts!!😍🤗
