We will be celebrating the transition from Fall into the colder season with a delicious Vietnamese menu created by Community Chef Van Duong. She will lead us through the cooking and preparing of the meal, and in doing so we can celebrate the stories and flavours of Vietnam! We will be making a hearty beefless Vietnamese “beef stew”, vegan tofu spring rolls, and peanut sauce. Vegan/vegetarian friendly.
