FEATURED TALK:

Professor Chef Leo Chan will talk about the history of Chinese restaurants in Toronto in the past 100+ years covering the changes. The audience will be transported back in time to share food memories that are so intricately linked with successive waves of Chinese immigration. He will explore the ever-growing Chinese food community, and show how they are linked to the rapid changes of Toronto and where the next generation of food lovers fit into the puzzle. Opening the doors to diverse regional Chinese cuisines, Professor Chef Chan will take the audience to experience the deep passion of food traditions through engaging stories. The event is complete with food demonstration on how to make Chinese dumplings before the talk, with hands-on opportunities for the audience. He will be joined by Chef Frederick Oh from George Brown College, and former team captain and coach of the award winning Trillium Chefs Canada. Chef Oh is originally from Singapore. He will be doing food and vegetable carving.
