Canada and Toronto has settled immigrants and these newcomers who built early communities and shaped Canada's multicultural history. The first Chinese immigrants settled around Dundas and Elizabeth streets, described as the Ward. Learn about immigration laws that separated families for 24 years. On our walk we will explore those early sites and see how the area has evolved through food. We will walk along Dundas towards Spadina Avenue and explore food stops and restaurants that reflect our cultural heritage as well as incorporated modern tastes. We will have hand-pulled noodles that are stretched by a master, small offerings including dumplings, regional specialties and sweet and savory buns. At the end of the tour there is an option to explore ingredients and shop at an Asian grocery store to re-create your special dish at home.
Il tuo host
I am a food writer & tea sommelier who grew up in Toronto's original Chinatown. I will share stories of the first immigrants who came without their family to build the railroad and created the link that united Canada coast to coast. A story of newcomers who created a community that gave support and maintained strong cultural ties while building a new life- this is Chinatown. We will walk in their footsteps and rediscover how food brings together community and shapes our history.
