What set it apart for me was the range of restaurants. A lot of food shows have some of those chefs, but this one has everyone you want to see. Lots of Food Network chefs. With so many stands the food offering is like nothing I've ever seen before. I liked that each stand offered something different and you never knew what to expect at the next one. And the space is pretty cool too. I like that it's inside the ROM but that you can also go outside. I spoke to one of the volunteers there who said that next year they would be going as a guest instead of volunteering, so they seemed pretty impressed too.
Went to Toronto Taste last night & had the best time I've ever had a food event. Faves:
- Elleven's lobster roll - Rodney's PEI oysters - Buca's prosciutto w/radish & mascarpone - Woodlot's tofu on brioche (which I was surprised I liked so much) - Nota Bene burger - Ciao's short ribs & polenta - Victoria Gin martinis
Too busy eating & drinking to take pictures, but there are a bunch on Twitter if you're interested. Will definitely be going again next year!
Anyone else go? Interested to see other's favourites because there's no way you can hit up every station. Too many to get to.
I'm heading to Toronto Taste at the ROM on Sunday. Is anyone else going? Have you been before? This is my third time. Had a blast last year. Looking forward to seeing what Michael Smith, Rob Gentile and the chefs from George Brown will be serving.
Went for dinner last night. Good service, great atmosphere, above average food. Menu selection is excellent. Started with oysters - perfect. Had the Sunday Supper - no yorkies though, as the chef wasn't happy with them. Roast beef excellent! Cheesecake seemed frozen, definitely not fresh. Pretty disappointing. Overall will go back. Looking forward to trying brunch.
