That’s Life! is hosting the Toronto Dumpling + Sake Fest at Propeller Coffee on Thursday, April 9th.

The Toronto Dumpling + Sake Fest will be featuring culinary inspired dumplings from 9 chefs competing for the Golden Chopsticks. We challenged 9 of our chef friends to create the best dumpling, borrowing culinary influences from around the world and their individual experiences.

Tickets are $55, including all 9 dumplings plus 4 sake tastings and 1 ballot for top dumpling. Proceeds will go to The Stop, Community Food Centre. Tickets must be purchased online and there are no tickets at the door.
