Concerned about social justice, food security, sustainability and ethically sourcing food for large-scale institutions like hospitals and community food centres, Joshna is quite literally a force of good food. She demonstrates two seasonal dishes – masala char ceviche on a root veg chip and a spiced pumpkin crumble with maple thyme cream.
Joshna Maharaj is a busy chef, activist and speaker with big ideas about good food! Joshna’s strong social justice and sustainability ethics are rooted in her time at The Stop, a community food centre where she built innovative and delicious community food programs.
Recently, Joshna has been working with institutions in Toronto building new models for institutional food procurement, production and service, proving that the institution is a viable tool for social change. Joshna has been an expert panellist on TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin and makes regular appearances on CBC Radio. Joshna is a two-time TEDx speaker and recently made the shortlist of nominees for the inaugural Basque Culinary World Prize, which recognizes chefs who use gastronomy for social change. @joshnamaharaj
