Annual General Meeting
Saturday, October 20, 2018, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Village Room at Swansea Town Hall (95 Lavinia Avenue, southwest of Runnymede TTC station in Toronto)
In addition to the business portion of the meeting, we are excited to welcome as our keynote speakers CHC lifetime members Elizabeth Baird and Bridget Wranich, co-editors of Recipes for Victory: Great War Food from the Front and Kitchens Back Home in Canada (Whitecap, Sept. 2018).
The recipes in this collection were researched and tested by the volunteer historic cooks at Fort York National Historic Site, several of whom are CHC members. Samples will be served.
As well, we look forward to awarding lifetime memberships to two individuals whose expertise and enthusiasm have contributed greatly to awareness of Canadian food heritage.
