Newcomer Kitchen started at The Depanneur in 2016 as a grass-roots initiative to create social and economic opportunities for newly-arrived Syrian refugees. After a wildly successful 3-year pilot at The Depanneur, Newcomer Kitchen expanded to become a entrepreneurial training program aimed at helping diverse groups of newcomer women gain experience in the food sector.

Newcomer Kitchen’s cohorts are made up of women from around the world who have come together to share their foods and cultures with Toronto. These ladies are excited to create a truly international meal just in time for Canada Day — a celebration of what makes this country home for so many.


Newcomer Kitchen’s latest group of ladies hails from India, Morocco and Eritrea, so expect an eclectic and delicious culinary adventure. Menu details will be posted closer to the date
