One night. Thirty chefs. All you can eat and drink!
I was contacted by representatives of Toronto non-profit organization FoodShare to help raise awareness for their upcoming event, Recipe for Change on February 22, 2018 at the St. Lawrence Market. I can’t stress ENOUGH on how crucial their mission is – teaching kids about the importance of healthy eating and cooking food by working with communities and schools. A lot of kids are disconnected from where their food comes from and they need our help to continue delivering healthy food and innovative education to kids. Recipe for change is one night to celebrate the great flavours Toronto has to offer and to raise funds for this super important cause!
Don’t sleep on this event, and make sure you grab your tickets now before it sells out!!
To get you excited, read my quick Q&A with one of the chefs participating in the event, Chef Nuit Regular (owner of Pai and Kiin to name a few) below:
1. What is it about Foodshare that resonates with you?
It’s such a good cause. Health literacy and knowledge is something that has always been very important to me and as a nurse I always love to promote healthy food.
2. Can you give us a tease on what dish/dishes you will be preparing for the event?
Yes, I am preparing the rice salad from my new restaurant named Kiin. It consists of rice and 12 herbs. It’s very refreshing and healthy and very tasty.
3. Recipe for Change is about inspiring kids to eat and cook healthy food! Is there a recipe that you can share with us to help promote this initiative with our own families and friends?
