DROP-IN DINNER: Art School Masala by Moira Clark and Alia Toor

November 1, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Moira Clark and Alia Toor met at Sheridan College where they are studio professors in the Art & Art History Program. Realizing they had both been involved in the Toronto arts community since the beginning of time, but had never crossed paths, they bonded over art teaching tips and cooking recipes. After baking and sharing Christmas cookies together, they knew they had higher dreams of grandeur.

Faced with less time to make real art but more time to drink wine, discuss the connections between food and art and cook, they decided to collaborate on a dinner night. Thus, Art School Masala was conceived. With a love for simple cooking, spicy food and an inexorable need for approval (like all artists), they are cooking a meal not to be missed. Spicy channa, chicken thighs glazed with masala maple syrup, basmati rice and raita will be a meal worthy of any art school degree.
