TABLE TALK: Valerie Tarasuk

May 1, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This month’s Table Talk falls on May Day, both an ancient celebration of the promise of Spring and a modern day of remembrance of the ongoing fight for social justice. It seems very fitting then to invite food researcher Valerie Tarasuk for an exploration of approaches to reducing food insecurity in Canada, with a glimpse into the implications of current policies — both intended and unintended. 
Dinner by Len Senater
Inspired by the frugal ingenuity of home cooks around the world, tonight’s dinner features Mexican-inspired dishes specifically made from leftovers of other meals. Sopa de Fideo (broth with fine rice noodles), Chilaquiles (crispy tortillas tossed in chile-tomato sauce topped with egg, cheese, avocado & crema), and Chocolate Cinnamon Bread Pudding. #GF #vegetarian #vegan options available
Doors open at 6pm, talk starts at 7pm
includes dinner and coffee or tea.
$25 (+HST)
Valerie Tarasuk is a Professor in the Department of Nutritional Sciences and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. Most recently, she has led PROOF, an interdisciplinary research program funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and designed to identify effective policy approaches to reduce household food insecurity in Canada.
This Table Talk is presented in collaboration with Artery
