Harvest Wednesdays #Canada150 With Joshna Maharaj says
Let the taste of Canada blow your freak'n mind!

Our beloved Harvest Wednesday is back by popular demand! The Gladstone Hotel invites Toronto’s urbanites to experience our food philosophy through a series of local food events inspired by #CANADA150 and harvested in the natural rhythm of Ontario’s growing season.

For first Harvest Wednesdays of 2017, we invite you to a Harvest Table Dinner in the Ballroom with the Gladstone Hotel's new executive chef Joshna Maharaj! She will incorporate local produce from Chick-a-Biddy farms CSA along with her classic locally-inspired cuisine.

Your Harvest Table Dinner ticket includes:

4 courses (appetizer, starter, main and dessert) served family style in the Ballroom
2 glasses of wine from Peller Estates
Live music from local performers
Inspiring remarks from the Chef Joshna Maharaj, the Gladstone’s Chief Alchemist Christina Zeidler, local farmers and Stanners Vineyard

Joshna Maharaj is a busy chef with big ideas about good food! Joshna’s strong social justice and sustainability ethics are rooted in her time at The Stop, a community food centre where she built innovative and delicious community food programs. Recently, Joshna has been working with institutions in Toronto building new models for institutional food procurement, production and service, proving that the institution is a viable tool for social change. Joshna is currently an expert panelist on TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin and makes regular appearances on CBC radio. She is also a two-time TEDx speaker and recently made the shortlist of nominees for the inaugural Basque Culinary World Prize recognizing chefs who use gastronomy to make social change.

Harvest Wednesdays is a local culinary series inspired by the Gladstone’s long-time investment in four ‘shares’ of a local Community Shared Agriculture Farm, Chick-a-biddy Acres Farms. By showcasing their local produce each week alongside guest chefs, community organizations and local producers, Harvest Wednesdays sparks conversations about Community Shared Agriculture, eating locally for global change, bridging the gap between urban and rural and of course, enjoying seasonal Ontario produce, picked from the land just the day before.

What is Community Shared Agriculture (C.S.A.)?
Community Shared Agriculture allows city residents to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers. When you become a member of a CSA, you're purchasing a “share” of vegetables from a regional farmer. It is a relationship of shared bounty and shared risk.
