This month’s Cafe de La Leche was held at the Casa de Campo villa of Inge Demyttenaere and began just as the seemingly never-ending rain finally stopped!  

As always, it was a pleasure to come together with other Casa de Campo ladies to share in the Cafe de La Leche event – a great social and charity event! Every Cafe de la Leche seems to unite a different group of Casa de Campo ladies, the ‘core’ group of Casa de Campo ladies who support the event every month, as well as those who are only in Casa de Campo for the holidays or for the season but, whatever the time of year, there is always the opportunity to meet with new and interesting people, as well as catch up with friends you may not have seen in a while!

For this month’s Cafe de La Leche Inge worked with Lisa Perrone to do the catering and all the food was delicious! Lisa is one of the chefs at Lucas restaurant in Buena Vista, from where she offers cooking classes and as an Italian she specialises in classic Italian food – and so the food spread was quiet delicious! The yummy pastries and more-ish chocolate treats on offer were catered by Crema, one of La Romana’s most popular bakeries – the Cafe de La Leche is not a good place to be on a diet!

The Cafe de La Leche is a monthly charity event, held for the Hogar del Niño, children’s day care centre and school, where ladies from Casa de Campo and La Romana get together over a cup of tea, wine, occasionally champagne, and a few nibbles. Each lady brings a donation of dried milk, cereals or baby formula, which is then used to feed the over 200 babies cared for in the Hogar del Niño everyday. La Cafe de la Leche es un evento mensual para beneficiar al Hogar del Niño. El evento normalmente incluye algunas bebidas, comida y la oportunidad a charlar con amigas y conocer nuevas amigas! Contribución: Leche, Formula y cereales – que son donados a la sala cuña del Hogar del Niño a alimentar los mas de 200 bebes.
