A number of my immediate and extended family have lived and worked in Japan so for me, there will always be a connection to all things Japanese especially its food, art and culture. CIBI in Collingwood is holding a special event called 'Touch the heart: eat and learn at CIBI' from 6 - 8 pm on Thursday 17 May introducing 30 different ingredients and vegetables. (Note: little known fact but the literal meaning of 'dim sum' also means to 'pierce the heart'). Call 9077 3941 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
