Imagine yourself walking into Roy Thompson Hall where you would normally expect to have your audible senses entertained, well on this occasion it was all about taste-buds. A handful of our members and their better-half’s ventured into the big city for Brewers Plate where, master chefs and brewers come together with musicians and artists to bring you an extraordinary locavore Spring feast, an unforgettable evening’s entertainment and a deep appreciation of local, sustainable food and drink. The charitable beneficiary this year, Green Thumbs Growing Kids, puts edible gardens in Toronto schoolyards.
It was an extraordinary evening of fabulous food and drink. The highlight of the evening for me was found at the Keriwa Café booth. Chef Aaron Joseph Bear Robe has worked across Canada at some of the best fine dining establishment in the nation and with Keriwa Café, chef Aaron Bear Robe, hopes to employ the finest quality locally and regionally sourced ingredients drawing from the his peoples and others’ food cultures of Canada and make honest, delicious, rustic food to be enjoyed by all who come to the hearth of Keriwa Café. They are located just inside the cozy block where Roncesvalles and Queen Street West intersect, the last outpost of Parkdale, Toronto, is Keriwa Cafe.
