Presented by Mason Studio at the 91 Pelham Ave Cultural Hub

Food has an incredible power to connect people. Mason Studio gathers the stories, histories, and traditions of many cultures through one dish that connects them all: the dumpling.

From the Polish pierogi to the Chinese wonton, explore how various celebrated Toronto chefs and restauranteurs prepare dumplings that reflect their heritage. Each restaurant will share some of their cherished dumpling recipes for you to try at home.

For two interactive evenings, Mason Studio pairs leading chefs and culinary experts to discuss how food connects people. They will also demonstrate, provide samples, and teach you how to make their dumplings with a hands-on experience.

The Open House event will celebrate all the chefs and provide dumpling samples from some participating restaurants.
