DROP-IN DINNER: Tel Aviv by Amira Eskenazi

May 3 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Chef Amira Eskenazi was head chef of the iconic French restaurant La Regence at the Dan Hotel in Tel Aviv which allowed her to combine her love for classic French cooking with the colours and flavours of local, Mediterranean ingredients.
 
In 2017, she decided to return to her home country of Canada, choosing Toronto because of its vibrant and growing food scene. She was happily surprised to see the diversity and possibilities that the city has to offer and is happy to introduce Toronto’s food lovers to her own international style.
