Dishing Up Toronto: Hungering for Inclusion
Sat, 15 April 2017, 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT
This walking tour and cooking workshop explores Toronto’s tumultuous migration history. Walk through historic Bond Street and north to College Park, exploring moments in the neibourhood's history when immigrants were excluded and uncover how the City has worked to become a more diverse and inclusive space. Join Chris Theofilogiannakos at Mackenzie House for a cooking workshop and tasting based on recipes that reflect food memories linked to Chris’ own Greek migrant story, while sharing your own food memories and stories of migration to Toronto.
