Vegan Night at The Depanneur – Every Wednesday. (and other days too)

I don’t think enough people know about The Depanneur (I’m just going to call them The Dep). Or people have heard about them, but don’t realize the rich diversity of options this little food spot has.

The Dep really is the place where “interesting food things happen”. From having rent-able commercial kitchen space, to running workshops, and having tasty themed food events with guest chefs, it’s also home of the Rusholme Park Supper Club and retail space for local goods. Lately we’ve been really enjoying Veg Out Wednesdays with Emily Zimmerman/Pear & Pepper. New and creative things every week. I like the oddly transient quality of it. The nature of the event makes it impossible to have a favourite dish, because it’s always something different, but always something quite lovely. Every week, I look forward to seeing what she comes up with. Wednesday also happens to be the same night you can pick up your Fresh City Farms grocery order, so you could even pair the two up and feel extra productive.
