On March 8th, we celebrate 100 years of International Women’s Day! To salute this monumental milestone Toronto’s finest women chefs will come together to prepare a succulent feast with wine pairings and a kitchen gift registry to raise money for Sistering’s new kitchen. Sistering has been serving hot meals to homeless, marginalized and low-income women in Toronto since 1981. Recently, they have experienced a 40% increase in the number of women seeking food and assistance. In order to meet the increasing demand, Sistering must expand its kitchen and storage facilities.
In collaboration with Marion “Food Sleuth” Kane (writer, broadcaster) and chef Lynn Crawford (co-owner of the table d’hôte restaurant Ruby Watchco, host of Pitchin’ In/Food Network Canada and formerly of the Four Seasons Hotel), Kitchen Sisters: An Exquisite Dining Experience will bring together Toronto’s top women chefs on International Women’s Day, Tuesday, March 8th at 6 p.m. at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen, 85 Hanna Avenue.
The evening begins with a reception at 6 p.m., featuring passed canapés created by chefs Lynn Crawford, Donna Dooher (Mildred’s Temple Kitchen) and Deborah Reid (George Brown College). A delectable four-course dinner is served at 7 pm.
