Tiffin Talk: A Taste of Nostalgia

date & time Sunday, July 7 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

location Jharokha Garden at Performance Works

tickets $25-$45

Imagine the rich aromas of your mother’s sabji simmering on the stove, or the comforting scent of your grandmother’s wild rice as it cooks. Such moments are more than routines; they are portals to our past. Food nostalgia has the power to transport us across time and space, reconnecting us with people, places, and emotions that have shaped us.

Dishes prepared by loved ones provoke deep feelings of comfort, belonging and joy. How do the flavours of our heritage influence our identities and sense of community today?

At this lunchtime Tiffin Talk, join Shiva Reddy, CBC Food and Wine Columnist and Host of Not Your Butter Chicken, discover why our most beloved meals do more than nourish our bodies–they can nourish our souls, tether us to our histories, and celebrate our deepest human connections.

Each Indian Summer Tiffin Talk includes a 45-minute dialogue with guest speakers, followed by a long table meal served piping hot in traditional Indian-style tiffins.

Please arrive at 11:45 AM to check in for A Taste of Nostalgia. Speakers to be announced.
