Celebrate Asian Heritage Month
this May long weekend!
We have two great programs ready to go this Saturday May 18th starting at 11 am!
From 11am - noon we are featuring A Taste of the Dragon Boat Festival: Food demonstration and tasting, a Cooking Demo & Tasting with Shirley Lum! Culinary historian and tour guide, Shirley Lum of A Taste of the World Walks will share lore and legends behind the long paddle boats, a dead poet and the delicious sticky rice dumplings, a.k.a Zong Zi. During this session, she will also shed light on how you make the savoury and sweet dumplings, then participants get a chance to make one to take home as well as try a sampling of dumplings pre-made by Shirley.
Afterwards at noon there is the Henna Workshop for Teens where teens between the ages 12 and 18 can learn the art of Henna from an expert and get a sample design! We are lucky to have artist Henna by Fia lead a workshop on the history and science of Henna. See you there!
Space is limited for both events so please call our branch at 416-393-7746 to register.
