It’s no coincidence that the 3rd annual Kitchen Sisters event was held on International Women’s Day in support of Sistering, an organization that supports poor, homeless, marginalized and low-income women in Toronto. They do this by providing hot meals, emotional support and more. The program is in such high demand (currently at 400 meals a day) that the kitchen needs to be renovated to accommodate the demand. So Kitchen Sisters is a fundraising event that pays for these much-needed renovations. So on March 8th, 2013 there was an intimate 100-person gathering at the cozy Mildred’s Temple Kitchen in Liberty Village for an exquisite dining experience with a 4-course feast as follows:

Wine was donated by Colio Estate Wines, Ponte, Stem Wine Group and Philippe Dandurand Wines.

Congratulations to Sistering for raising the $400,000 needed to renovate the Sistering Kitchen! Next year’s Kitchen Sisters event will be at the new kitchen!

Here is our video with Chefs Lynn Crawford (Food Network television chef and Ruby Watch co. restaurant), Anne Yarymowich (Frank at the AGO), Donna Dooher (Mildred’s Temple Kitchen) speaking about Sistering and International Women’s Day.
