On November 1st, 60 remarkable female chefs will come together to showcase their talents for one worth cause at the Eat to the Beat event, benefiting breast cancer. Held at Roy Thompson Hall, this event is a chance for food lovers to come together and sample some of the best dishes of the city. Chefs from Colette, Mildred’s Temple, The Drake Hotel are amongst the many establishments in participation.
This will make the 21st year of the event and sister Lisa and Abby Slater have raised closed to $4 million since the event’s inception. In speaking to Felicia Derose the executive sous chef of Colette Grand Café (Chase Hospitality Group) she also highlights that Eat to the Beat is an amazing way to show case female chefs as well. Often female chefs do not get the same chance as their male counter parts to shine and events like Eat to the Beat is a chance for the ladies of Toronto’s culinary arts to come together for a great cause.
