TABLE TALK: Chef Francoise Briet on Nutrition and Healing

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

What is nutrition? We all intuitively know that our health and well-being is intimately connected to what we eat, but how much do we truly understand about how and why food affects us? Consumers and the food industry alike are eager for simple, ‘silver bullet’ solutions, but reality is more complicated. With so much competing, often conflicting information out there, it can be challenging to understand how to make the right food choices. Chef Francoise Briet brings three unique perspectives to the…


DROP-IN DINNER: Jump Up Soup by Greg Couillard

September 4 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Despite being such an incredible food city, Toronto does not have much in the way of unique, signature dishes. I hereby nominate Chef Greg Couillard's Jump Up Soup as one. For a time this was probably Toronto's most famous dish, inspired by the first Caribana Parade in 1967 - a riot of colour, music and tropical heat that crashed through the stolid grey of downtown Toronto much like Greg's cooking would do to the restaurant scene in the decades that…

MASTER CLASS: Sous Weed — Cooking with Cannabis 101 by Carole Nelson Brown

September 20 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Finally medical and recreational cannabis is legal, but not everyone wants to smoke… Cannabis-infused edibles offer a more pleasant, varied and precise way to incorporate the benefits of cannabis into your lifestyle, but uninspired, store-bought gummies or brownies provide less control over dosage or quality of ingredients.

COOKING CLASS: Mastering the Instant Pot by Carole Nelson Brown

Pressure cooking, by its very nature, is a faster and healthier way to prepare foods. Nutrients are preserved at much higher rates than other, conventional cooking methods, flavours are intensified and, again, cooking time can be reduced by up to 70%. Throw in the fact that you are using less energy, wasting less water and how can you go wrong? Unfortunately, many of us have scary memories of our grandmother’s pressure cooker, hissing, spitting and rattling away on the stove…
