For full enjoyment, do not eat prior to this intimate foodie event with local culinary historian, Shirley Lum, of A Taste of the World Walks. We kick off with a walking tour of Toronto’s downtown Chinatown, the largest and one of many in the greater Toronto area. Ms Lum will guide us through an Asian grocery store, BBQ tasting, tea/herbalist shop, and bakery. The highlight is the hosted Dim Sum lunch, complete with chopsticks, tea pouring etiquette, and your Chinese horoscope for the Year of the Dragon. Ms Lum will order dishes to tantalize all of your senses.
