Female chef festival

60 female chefs highlight huge food festival in Toronto

Toronto's filled with food events - and we know because we round them up each and every week. But few celebrate female-identified chefs quite like this one happening next week at Roy Thomson Hall.

The 21st annual Eat to the Beat fundraiser for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation brings together 60 female chefs from in and around Toronto and lets partygoers feast on a slew of sweet and savoury dishes.

Tickets to this all-you-can-eat-and-drink affair aren't cheap (they're $189), but the proceeds go to a worthy cause. Do you need a better excuse to let your foodie flag fly?

Here's a list of all the participating chefs. Hungry yet?
