On October 2nd, 2018, we catered the first New Roots Dinner Series in six unique locations in Toronto, Daniel et Daniel served a total of 130 guests and utilized ingredients grown around Cabbagetown.
The purpose of this pop-up dinner series was to secure funding for Green Thumbs Growing Kids, a local charity that promotes environmental and nutritional education based around school gardens. Their mission is to reconnect society with real whole natural food by teaching children how to grow fruits and vegetables locally.
After the success of last years dinners, the New Roots Dinner Series will be returning to Cabbagetown. Working closely with Green Thumbs to keep tabs on what’s growing, Executive Chef Karen O’Connor alongside Executive Pastry Chef Bonnie Kravitz, will develop a catering menu that not only utilizes fresh produce from the school gardens but also features their flavours making them the star of each dish.
Dine with us on Tuesday, August 20th, 2019 at one of four unique venues located in Cabbagetown: Riverdale Farms, Toronto Dance Theatre, Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, and Allan Gardens Children’s Conservatory. Complete with a cocktail reception and a gourmet four-course meal, it’s going to be a dinner experience you wouldn’t want to miss!
