Talk by Claire M. Tallarico and Tonia Di Risio.
Dinner prepared by The Depanneur founder Len Senater.
Doors open at 6pm, talk starts at 7pm.
Claire and Tonia will talk about how food sharing and art making can be a powerful vehicle for community building. Alchemy explores the relationships between artistic practice and the growing, cooking and sharing of locally cultivated food in a community setting. Originally founded at Artscape Gibraltar Point on Toronto Island, Alchemy is now held each summer in Prince Edward County.
On the first Tuesday of every month, The Depanneur invites a local food personality to talk about something that interests them.

Creamy yellow corn mamaliga (soft polenta, Romanian-style), served with roasted vegetable ratatouille (#vegan).
Sour cream, feta cheese and mititei (small, skinless Romanian sausages) served optionally alongside, as well as cucumber and dill salad.
An Alchemy-inspired dessert prepared by Tonia and shared with the tables, along with tea or coffee
Table Talks take place around the dinner table while Dep founder Len Senater prepares a dinner inspired by the topic of the day.
Vegetarian, vegan and/or gluten free options available.
