See you at David Suzuki Homegrown Park Crawl

On Sunday, September 27, we’ll be at the Trinity Bellwoods part of the David Suzuki Park Crawl. We invite you to join Toronto’s most joyous musical parade, the third annual Homegrown Park Crawl. The Park Crawl will once again feature great food (some treats by us!), lively music and fun activities — plus a few surprises — as we crawl along the former path of the Garrison Creek.

Park Crawl food tickets sold out each year, so we encourage you to get yours online in advance. Tickets are now available online, and until September 17 you can get five tickets for $20. Buy tickets here:

Fort York Food Bank & Matthew House

Here at Le Dolci, we work with local charities to support those in need. Read below about the two amazing organizations that we are proud to contribute to.
 
Fort York Food Bank:
FYFB’s Food Program provides low-income individuals and families living in our community with a three-day supply of groceries. FYFB is a member agency of the Daily Bread Food Bank and our assigned service area covers the Westside of downtown Toronto, from Yonge to Dovercourt, Lake Ontario to Bloor. Many low-income individuals and families struggle to receive adequate nourishment. Working with registered dieticians, FYFB’s Food Program provides groceries that are consistent with the Canada Food Guide.
 
Matthew House:
Matthew House grew out of the vision of its founder and current director, Anne Woolger, who had worked for many years at a city-run shelter for refugees in Toronto. There her eyes were opened to the plight of refugee claimants who were arriving in Canada seeking asylum as refugees but had no place to stay. Recognizing the need for caring shelters geared specifically toward the unique settlement needs of refugee claimants, Anne approached her denominational leaders and shared her vision of establishing a Christian-based reception home that would provide a warm welcome for refugee claimants in a caring home-like setting.
 
Visit Fort York Food Bank and Matthew House to learn more about the work they do and how you can give back to your community.

NEW CLASS: FOOD PORN, PHOTOGRAPHY & STYLING

We are super excited to announce a new class – Food Porn: Photography & Styling with Brilynn Ferguson. Students will style and stage photographs with Le Dolci treats and there will be a food stylist, Michelle Rabin, present.

Michelle Rabin is one of those lucky people that wakes up and does not believe she gets paid to do what she does. She has married her two passions: Cooking and art. What does that make her? A food stylist, of course. Michelle comes from a culinary background and has worked in some of the best restaurants in both Toronto and New York. She now works as a full time food stylist and recipe developer. Her work can be seen on the hit TV show Masterchef Canada, on Canada AM, in Chatelaine Magazine and if you’re lucky enough to be invited to her house… on her kitchen table. When she is not in the kitchen Michelle can be found in her ceramics studio or in her garden.

Get to know Brilynn Ferguson.

Class Dates:
Sunday, May 31st – 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Saturday, June 27th – 2 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Saturday, July 25th – 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

March 15th #SelfCareSunday

This past Sunday, the #SelfCareSunday event hosted by Fat Girl Food Squad & P.S. You’re Beautiful was a fabulous success! The afternoon was spent with beautiful ladies making chocolate truffles, getting chair massages from Epione Massage Therapy and hair touch-ups by Small Talk Barber Shop and Salon, drinking Fresita mimosas and spritzers, and more!
 
All attendees left with a gift bag including a self-care guidance booklet and more. Thank you to all the amazing and inspiring ladies who came out to this event. 
 
Fat Girl Food Squad aims to provide a safe, positive space for all bodies, while showcasing those who label and identify themselves as fat and endeavouring to breakdown the stereotypes and barriers that surround such a controversial three letter word.
 
P.S. You’re Beautiful is a community of strong women with loud voices who have something to share, from beauty and body image to pop culture commentary and everything in between.
 
Check out a few of the snaps from #SelfCareSunday by Geeky Girl Photography.
