Join us for a special Chefs Menu featuring traditional Syrian cuisine. 

Thursday November 5th - Saturday November 7th

Yasser, our Chef de Cuisine, and his family are from Palestine and he spent two decades living as refugees in Kuwait before he came to Canada. For this meal, Yasser will be cooking food close to his heart, as Syrian, Lebanese and Palestinian cuisines share similar terroir and history.

Guelph Refugee Support Group

The GRSG is a group of Guelph families brought together by a shared sense of concern for the brutal civil war in Syria. Their mission is to sponsor a Syrian family to a new life here, helping to change the lives of people who have lost everything, and to give their children the chance to know the safety and opportunity we so often take for granted in Canada.  Contact www.grsg.info

We, at Artisanale, are deeply troubled by what we see happening in Syria and around the world. And we are honored to help the GRSG in their efforts.
