Ask any wine and food enthusiast about the mouth watering magazines they enjoy perusing and chances are they will respond FOOD & WINE. This palate pleasing publication is the ultimate authority on the best of what’s new in food, drink, travel, design and entertaining. Access to the food and wine world not only comes from its pages, but its curators also showcase some of the world’s best culinary talent at premier events and festivals like the Toronto Food and Wine show, which took place this past weekend.
Held in the open-air it was the perfect way to take in the final fleeting days of summer, enjoying a feast of flavors. The Evergreen Brickworks was the setting for the inaugural event delighted attendees for three days with over 130 vendors and participants in the Grand Tasting Pavillion offering up sips and samples of some of their finest, and celebrating the multicultural epicurean scene of this diverse city. The culinary weekend also included: festival special events like the kick-off dinner at Parts & Labour; the Heritage BBQ as part of the Cochon 555 tour; the PC Black Label Collection Diner en Noir; classes with master chefs like Mark McEwan, Curtis Stone, Tyler Florence and Chuck Hughes to name a few; intimate and interactive chef’s talks with Roger Mooking, Jamie Kennedy, David Rocco and more; demonstrations from the hottest celebrity chefs and lifestyle experts on the Miele celebrity stage; and a taco and tequila wrap up party at El Catrin.
Toronto Food and Wine, truly the ultimate culinary weekend that has me already looking forward to and craving what’s in store next year. Buon Appetito!
