A new food event is coming to Toronto! From September 20-27, BLACK FOODIE is hosting its first-ever BLACK FOODIE Week to showcase and help build the city’s Black culinary scene.

Each day of the event, prominent Black chefs, restaurants, and food entrepreneurs in Toronto will be profiled on BLACK FOODIE’s website and social media channels. The week-long event will also include cook-alongs, drink and learns, and panel discussions with those in the food scene including Chef Suzanne Bar, Chef Adrian Forte, Paul Taylor of FoodShareTO, and Leticia Deawuo of Black Creek Farms.

“As the city reopens and regains some of its liveliness and vibrancy, it is crucial we ensure that Black chefs, Black-owned restaurants, and Black culinary creatives are receiving the support they need,” says Ellen Asiedu, Strategy Lead and Producer at BLACK FOODIE. “This carries even more weight when thinking of the moment we’re currently living in. BLACK FOODIE Week provides a voice to those ignored and dismissed for a very long time by the culinary world.”

Tickets to BLACK FOODIE Week are free and can be reserved here.
