Chefs for Peace

Hillel of Greater Toronto is proud to present: Chefs for Peace

A Faith and Fusion Culinary Event

Toronto, On- Join us for a unique food and wine event that will showcase acclaimed chefs from Israel and Toronto, Muslim and Jewish, cooking for co-existence.

This inaugural five course culinary event, the first of its kind to be presented in Canada, will be launched in Toronto March 12th at Mideastro Bistro, located at 27 Yorkville Avenue starting at 6:30pm Kashrut/Halal observed. The event will be hosted by accomplished Food Critic and Author Bonnie Stern and Founder of Chefs For Peace Kevork Alemian. The roster of celebrity Chefs include; Pastry Chef Ibrahim Abuseir from The David Citadel Hotel in Jerusalem, Executive Chef Yossi Elad from Mackneyada in Jerusalem, Executive Chef Abderrahman Khallouk from Kara Mia in Toronto, Executive Chef Benny Cohen from Midestro in Toronto and Executive Chef Eran Marron from Marom Bistro in Toronto.

Our goal is to stimulate dialogue between the Jewish and Muslim attendees through the sharing of culturally significant food, (prepared by world renowned chefs representing both cultures), goodwill and conversation. From this opportunity for communication, comes understanding, and from there, the foundation for mutual respect.

“One of the most effective ways to accomplish change, and eliminate stereotypes and ignorance on a global scale, is for each of us to come together as a community, united at the grassroots level with the express goal of positive communication and education amongst divergent cultures. What better way to start a peaceful and progressive dialogue, then to break bread and share a meal with our neighbors?” Says Shirin Ezekiel, Associate Executive Director, Hillel Toronto

CHEFS FOR PEACE, a nonprofit organization, was founded in November 2001 to implement events using culinary arts as a strategy to facilitate coexistence between the two peoples.

CHEFS FOR PEACE will utilize the interest in food, cooking and professional culinary opportunities to provide experiences between people separated by partisan circumstances

CHEFS FOR PEACE believe that through using the vocabulary of the kitchen, and mutual understanding and practical cooperation, they will try to acknowledge the true one path, and that is PEACE.

Through our mutual understanding, we will unite and show the world that our authentic cuisine can contribute to the peace process. CHEFS FOR PEACE is indifferent to politics, religion or color; our aim is the improvement of human relations.

“Be the change you want to see in the world.” - Mahatma Gandhi
