Here are five things you can take part in virtually and safely.

Online Baking Workshop: French Macaron and Ganache Filling

Holiday Wreath: YouTube Live Paint Night

You will learn how to mix all the colours needed with just the basics and the techniques to make a beautiful festive wreath for the holidays. Bring a canvas or media art paper of any size, a detailed brush size 1-3, a medium flat square and a large flat or round brush to fill in the background. The event will be held on Dec 6th at 11:00 a.m.

Toronto Mozart Choir: Mass in C

Attend a virtual Mozart Choir from the comfort of your home. The Toronto Mozart Choir presents Ludwig van Beethoven’s Mass in C. The event will be on Dec 5th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and you can purchase tickets here.

In the (virtual) French kitchen: Dessert, minified

Love fancy French desserts but can’t eat a whole tart – or don’t want to choose just one dessert? How about adopting the French tradition of ” le café gourmand “, a concept where you get three or four mini desserts with your after-dinner coffee. In this class, you’ll learn to make sweet shortcrust pastry and mini lemon meringue tarts, strawberry tarts with crème pâtissière, chocolate ganache tarts, and jam tarts. Recipes/ shopping lists and the Zoom login information will be sent approximately one week before the class. The class requires a minimum of eight screens to run. The workshop will be held on Dec 5th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and you can purchase tickets here.

Virtual Craft Show 

Time to knock out some Christmas shopping from the comfort of your couch. Grab a glass of wine and get ready to type as fast as you can. There will be a wide selection of holiday gifts and home décor for you to choose from. This virtual event will be held on Dec 6th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Purchase tickets here.
