Join holistic nutritionist Genevieve Kang (CNP) of KIKAN for an evening of nourishing food, community, and education.
Together, we’ll celebrate the transition from winter to spring with a curated menu that draws inspiration from Genevieve's Asian heritage. Gather around the table for a fun and lively communal dining experience: a hot pot feast!
This dinner will feature an abundance of local and seasonal ingredients, along with creative adaptations to some of Genevieve’s favourite flavours from childhood. In addition, we'll explore how consuming foods from our ancestors and other cultures can impact our overall wellbeing.
Guests will also enjoy kombucha made exclusively by our sponsor Culture Craft Kombucha, as well as non-alcoholic wine courtesy of our friends at Sansorium.
