Old man winter has finally arrived, with a vengeance, so if he is giving you a case of the blues Chefs for Change has the perfect way for you to deal with it, offering five incredible events throughout January, February and March. Each night will feature some of Toronto-and Canada’s-top culinary talents collaborating on a four-course dinner, with themed cocktails by The Drake Hotel’s Sandy DeAlmeida, cool tunes by these guys and other surprises guaranteed to make each event one of the highlights of your winter’s social season.
The dinners will take place on January 21, February 8 , and March 3rd at Propeller Coffee, 50 Wade Ave, in Toronto. Note that five events are being held, but two of them have already sold out. Attending these is a great way to combine indulgence and altruism; net proceeds from the dinners go to support Community Food Centres Canada, a non-profit organization that brings people in low-income communities together to grow, cook, share, and advocates for healthy food for all.
“CFCC offers a multidimensional approach including healthy drop-in meals and affordable produce markets, community gardens and kitchens, and education and peer advocacy programs offered under one roof. Working with farmers, chefs, restaurateurs, home cooks, backyard gardeners, health professionals, market-goers, teachers and the media, as well as sponsors and funders, CFCC is proving that good food can build community, enhance physical and mental health, nurture the planet and be a transformative force in low-income communities”
The first of these events, themed “Grow” features the combined talents of the following chefs and good food providers:
Jason Bangerter, Langdon Hall
Victor Barry, Splendido
Chris Brown, Citizen Catering
Justin Cournoyer, Actinolite
Jonathan Goodyear, Magna Golf Club
Sean MacDonald, Market (Calgary)
Joel Rousell, George Brown College
Afrim Pristine, Cheese Boutique
This is the second year that Chefs for Change will be bringing us these events, and based on the success of last years events, they promise to be just as good if not better! In fact, as mentioned above, the dinners on Jan 28 and Feb 25 already sold out, so if you are planning on going to any of the others, you should probably act soon!
Tickets for each event are 125$ and attendees will receive a tax receipt of 40$ after the event. To purchase tickets click here.
