Venues

THE DEPANNEUR
1033 College Street, Toronto
College & Ossington
The Depanneur is a delightfully informal and charming venue downtown, just east of College & Dufferin. Founded in 2011 by Len Senater, it is a very special place to Maria - it's where she hosted her first workshops and drop-in dinners!
Len is a superb host and a great person to know; he also hosts and helps organize events for the charity Newcomer Kitchen, which invites Syrian refugee women to cook a weekly meal in their kitchen. The proceeds are shared among the cooks, empowering them as women, cooks and providers for their families.

201 Weston Rd.
Weston Rd & St. Clair Ave. West.
A modern, stylish event space for workshops, corporate events, catering & special occasions.
Run by Vanessa Yeung, this lovely venue is tucked in behind off Weston Rd. The older exterior does not do the inside true justice - it is a delight, easily fits 25 guests and has excellent acoustics for live music.
