I am ridiculously excited about the impending, inaugural Food and Wine show right here at Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto this fall. For years, I have been reading about this travelling food show in Food and Wine magazine, fantasizing about flying to one of the host cities to attend. This fall, I will no longer have to fly to Chicago, NYC, Austin or LA because the circus is coming to town!
Formerly known as The Delicious Food Show, the new partnership with Food and Wine magazine will now mean Toronto is added to the roster of Food and Wine festival participants and the show will be bigger and better than ever. Packed with amazing Canadian talent, there will also be international food stars like Alton Brown, Tyler Florence and Curtis Stone on hand. It will be three days of non stop food nirvana with demos, tastings, lectures and more; a foodapalooza, if you will and I will be there the whole weekend.
