Dear community,

I miss you! I’ve thought about you often. Some of the greatest pleasures I’ve had was when I met you one-on-one at ZenKitchen, from my humble beginnings at different venues around town to my restaurant on Somerset.

You became part of my family and I want to see you again! So, I am planning a dinner on Sunday, October 1 and I’d love for you to come.

Why now? My travels to Southeast Asia and Japan this past winter have inspired me to share what I have learned, and so many of you have been encouraging me to have a pop-up. Then, the lovely chef-owner of Beechwood Gastropub Harriet Clunie said she’d be excited to host us, so the decision was made.

I am holding the dinner for the same reason I started ZenKitchen. I want to create a beautiful dining experience for you, with connection, community and good food.

Also, I have exciting news to share with you, I’m expecting another baby – my second book - in January 2018!

I am working with a Tokyo publisher to release a Canadian cookbook, first to the Japanese market. I’ll share more details about the book and other exciting projects when I see you on October 1!

Can you go back in time? Not really. I have changed, you have changed, the time has moved so quickly forward. But we can bring back the essence of what we had, like seeing a close friend that you have lost contact with and are excited to see again for one special evening.

Can’t wait to see you! With love and gratitude always, Caroline xo
