Twice a year, advisory boards of SIP and LTI meet for lunch at a downtown restaurant, this time we want to focus on our authors and speakers.

Would you like to join us for lunch at a famous landmark of Toronto - the Art Gallery of Ontario (French: Musée des beaux-arts de l'Ontario) at their exquisite restaurant called FRANK on next Tuesday February 1 at 12 noon (lunch is from 12:15 pm to 1:45 pm).

We could not a get a room, so we have a small booking of 10; please let me know if we can have the pleasure of your company. I guarantee you will meet extra-ordinary people.

Every one will be introduced and they will have the opportunity to tell us "What are they up to...?"

The special price three course lunch (drinks and beverages are not included) is only $20 (bargain considering what they normally charge):
Gingered carrot and beet soup with crisp heirloom carrot ribbons (vegan, gluten-free)
Maple roasted butternut squash and royal gala apple and candied walnuts on a salad of baby red romaine with apple cider vinaigrette (vegan, gluten-free)
Tamarind glazed beef brochette with coconut chilli chutney (Gluten-free)
Grilled cheese and spiced apple chutney sandwich on cranberry foccacia bread served with frites and lemon mayonnaise (vegetarian)

Seafood bourride with mussels, clams, white shrimp and chorizo sausage in a saffron scented broth with garlic toasts (gluten-free)
Chai spiced rice pudding brûlée with pistachio biscotti
Pear, ginger and nutmeg crumble with sweetened crème fraîche
Warm chocolate hazelnut brownie with chocolate ganache
Budget for $26 including taxes and gratuity.

More details will be provided later.

To you and your inspiration,

Max Haroon
