That's Life! is hosting the Toronto Dumpling + Sake Fest at Propeller Coffee on Thursday, April 9th. We're a sake & wine importer with an insatiable love of food. We've worked with top restaurants across Canada, including Hawksworth, Blue Water Cafe and Miku to showcase the versatility of sake and to collaborate with amazing chefs on fun projects.(

The Toronto Dumpling + Sake Fest will be featuring culinary inspired dumplings from 9 chefs competing for the Golden Chopsticks. We challenged 9 of our chef friends to create the best dumpling, borrowing culinary influences from around the world and their individual experiences. 

Tickets are $55, including all 9 dumplings plus 4 sake tastings and 1 ballot for top dumpling. Proceeds will go to The Stop, Community Food Centre. Tickets must be purchased online and there are no tickets at the door.
