I’m doing it again, only this time in the classic form of a sit down dinner as part of University of Toronto’s Dinner with 12 Strangers, sponsored by Alumni Affairs.
Given my small dining room it will be 6 students, 1 faculty member and myself for an evening of great food and interesting conversation. After the successful chaos of my holiday party for 30 strangers, this will allow for more indepth conversation and connection.
The program has been running only a few years at UofT but has taken off with the help of a little publicity and the word of mouth that comes from the quality of the experiences for both the hosts and the students. The month of March is booked solid with events.
Whether you are a UofT Alum or have an interest in supporting great students I’d encourage you to take part in this program. You don’t need to be a good cook, just a good sport. (If you’re in Mississauga/Oakville take a look at the UofT Mississauga version of this program.)
