International Women’s Day is coming up on Friday, March 8. There are tons of great ways to celebrate this important day, but what better way than by eating food cooked by some of the most kickass women around? Queue the Kitchen Sisters. Heard of this awesome event before? That’s probably because it’s in its third year! (And it’s an event we love.)
But if you haven’t heard of it, here’s a breakdown: Some of Toronto’s top female chefs come together to prepare a delicious evening of food and drink, with the proceeds going to Sistering. This year the event is hosted by Lynn Crawford of Ruby Watch Co. and the Food Network‘s “Pitchin’ In” fame. The evening kicks off at 6pm at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen (85 Hanna Ave.) and includes cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a four-course meal, wine pairings, and door prizes.
This year’s supplying participants are:
- Hors d’oeuvres: Christine Bib of Christine Bib Catering, along with Sistering’s Maureen Watson and Carol Gray
- Amuse-bouche: Suzanne Baby of Gallery Grill at University of Toronto, along with Sistering’s Trish Beard
- First and second courses: Donna Dooher of Mildred’s Temple Kitchen
- Dessert: Anne Yarymowich of FRANK at the AGO
- Bread: Andrea Damon Gibson of Fred’s Bread
- Wine: Colio Estate Wines, Ponte, Stem Wine Group and Philippe Dandurand Wines
Since 1981, Sistering has been providing hot meals (as well as other practical and emotional support) to marginalized and low-income women in Toronto. They offer basic needs for daily living, housing assistance, counselling, advocacy, and employment programs. The offshoot of Kitchen Sisters was created in collaboration with writer/broadcaster Marion Kane.
Tickets to March 8’s event cost $500 with a $350 tax receipt. To get more information and book your spot, click here. And don’t miss out on this wonderful—and delicious—opportunity to help women in need.
