Childhood: Yummy Memories - A plate is a canvas, a canvas full of thoughts and memories.
The idea behind this colourful exhibition is to celebrate childhood memories of favourite foods that we loved as kids, and to remember the most delicious flavours linked to our heritage and childhoods. Integral to our family memories, these are cherished meals that we miss from the time of our grandmothers and joyful family gatherings in our country of origin. Although we may still enjoy them here in our city today, these delightful dishes reconnect us to our childhood.

Exhibition at Harbourfront Centre, Marilyn Brewer Space, Toronto, Canada; in the framework of Pan American Festival.
