Sara Udow and Mat Calverley met on a bus headed to an art show in Oshawa. Having bonded over their love for food and cooking, they conspired to share their cultural cuisines with The Depanneur community.

Sara is a cultural and urban planner who is interested in how food can bring people together – whether around a campfire, dinner table or a community garden. Mat, a design strategist and ethnographic researcher, believes that food is a strong tie to ourselves, our past and each other. Growing up in an Anglo-Italian family, food was a way for his family to share and preserve their history. As a recent convert to Judaism, traditional Jewish and Israeli foods are a way Mat continues to write his own history.

Sara and Mat are joined by friend Sarah Kidd, who is bringing her own culinary skills to the meal. Graphic design by the talented Sam Mogelonsky.

Every Thursday The Depanneur is an ‘open mic’ night for culinary talent in TO, where we invite guest cooks, amateur or professional, to come and make their favourite dishes.
