You know me and local food festivals. Oh, you don’t? Okay, I’ll explain – if there’s one happening, I WILL attend.
The chance to savour new and exciting cuisines. The opportunity to chat one-on-one with world-renowned chefs. The time to learn about cooking techniques, flavours and culinary inspiration. The thrill of purchasing sauces and spices that have yet to make it to market. THAT is why I love food shows.
Today, I’m happy to introduce the FIRST ever Taste Of Toronto, a Taste Festival.
Taste Festivals, an IMG event, is considered the world’s greatest restaurant festival. The festival concept began 10 years ago in London, England, and has rapidly grown into an international event with festivals in 20 cities around the world including Dubai, Amsterdam, Milan, Moscow, Melbourne, Dublin, Mumbai, Sydney, and Johannesburg, to name a few. Everywhere it goes, Taste represents a gourmand’s dream come true: delicious food created by the city’s greatest restaurants, world famous chefs, superb drink and outstanding entertainment, set in stunning surroundings.
At Taste of Toronto, visitors can participate in a full schedule of cooking classes, demonstrations, chef Q&As, book signings and much more. Several special guests will be mingling with the crowd including Momofuku chef and owner David Chang; French-Canadian chef and television personality, Chuck Hughes; and cookbook author and Canadian chef, Roger Mooking.
With 17 of Toronto’s top chefs offering new culinary creations and over 50 signature small plates from their restaurants, sample the delicious fare over a picnic at the music stage featuring music performances by the likes of Jason Collett and The Darcys, curated by local record label Arts & Crafts. Be sure to tour the producers marketplace, including nearly 70 premium vendors, and visit the Officer’s Mess Kitchen for historical cooking classes for kids and adults alike.
Admission tickets start from $30 and give access to the festival grounds and programming listed below as well as $6 worth of ‘crowns’, the event currency. For more information or to purchase tickets visit tasteoftoronto.com. (more…)
