What Toronto Dishes Would You Love to Learn How to Make?

I'm thinking of an idea for a festive evening. A group of people who are fairly proficient in kitchen skills would learn to make a unique dish from one of the city's more interesting restaurants in the restaurant kitchen from the chef on a night when the restaurant would otherwise be closed. But what and where? Any suggestions on dishes would be most welcome, and I'm happy to do the legwork on whether they'd be willing to open.

  1. I would love to learn how to make the Gnocchi at Rosebud (the version with the braised oxtail - not the current version on the menu).

    1. The chicken paillard at Weezie's.

      1. The couscous with lamb merguez and vegetables at Djerba la Douce. It's a very modest establishment with a tiny kitchen, and yet the chef manages to get a depth of flavour into that dish that I can only dream of attaining.

        1. The red miso and beef stew at Sakura. I've tried emulating it myself a few times, and even though I can't get it the same, the results have all been delicious anyway.

            Yeah, I know it's not very highbrow but we love the "Crispy fish fillet pieces wok-fried in a sweet & sour jalapeno sauce served with frites and tempura somen noodles" at Supermarket. I would love to know how to make it.

            I can probably think of many others but another that pops to mind is the house ginger dressing at Edo-ko.

          2. Wild boar agnolotti at Mistura.
