“Our mission is to spread awareness of rescue dogs.”

Toronto’s top chefs and their sous chef-dogs are coming together for a BBQ picnic and a great cause in partnership with Samuel Adams, World of Angus & Digsville.

Afrim Pristine admits his life has changed since he became the owner of the two rescue dogs.

“This has become a passion project of mine since my dogs came into my life. I never knew that it was possible (to love a dog so much) as I never grew up with dogs.”

About Cheese Boutique
Cheese Boutique started in 1970 as a humble mom and pop corner store in Bloor Street’s West Village. Having grown into a gourmet staple, 16 years ago it set up a new home in a former sausage factory on an industrial strip called Ripley Avenue off South Kingsway. There “best before” dates do not apply in taking something good and making it great is an anchored philosophy. Their epicurean emporium contains a cumulative knowledge of three generations that supplies Toronto with succulent selections in appreciating fine food as one does fine art. Aging and curing everything from cheese to beef to Meyer lemons is handled with expert knowledge where patrons can glimpse the process by visiting our unique Cheese Vault.
