“My love and passion for food comes from my family legacy. I come from a big family full of great cooks and our family reunions centred around the kitchen: cooking, drinking and sharing recipes — I can’t wait to share my love for cooking with my new city!”
Every Friday 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.
