TABLE TALK: Melanie Coates (aka BEEGrrl)

June 5, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Melanie Coates (aka BEEGrrl) to welcome in Spring with a talk about the Birds and the Bees… Over ten years ago, Melanie, along with Chef David Garcelon, were the first in the world to install an urban apiary on the roof of a city centre hotel, at Toronto’s Fairmont Royal York, where Melanie remains the lead beekeeper.
Since then there has been a global surge in interest in urban beekeeping, and this informal chat will be exploring many of the fascinating aspects of raising bees: tales of mid-air mating, urban forage, and beecology, along with a tasting of local and international honey varieties.
+ Dinner by Len Senater
In keeping with the Birds & Bees theme, I’ll be making Hot Honey Seared Chicken Thighs with jalapeño-infused local honey, on Schmaltz-fried toasts with a fresh and colourful Spring coleslaw. For dessert, there will be Burnt Honey & Sesame Ice Cream Sundae ($5)
#vegetarian & #GF options available
Doors open at 6pm, talk starts at 7pm
includes dinner and coffee or tea.
$25 (+HST)
Melanie Coates is a long-standing member of the Toronto Beekeepers Collective, a member of the Ontario Beekeepers’ Association, and owner of Toronto’s BEEGrrl, a honey and beekeeping supply store, located a few blocks west of the Dep at 2003 Dundas Street West.
